Wedding Cakes

Oh the pressure! Being asked to do someones special cake on the big day. I’m new to cake decorating I want to make beautiful creations for people’s special day. It turns out my cousin is getting married in a couple weeks and my mother is holding a small reception for them the next long weekend. I need to come up with something to feed about 25 people and have the colour lilac.

I’m not sure about the type of flower I’m doing– I was thinking about trying this lilac flower.

I’ve only done two other wedding like cakes.

The first was a three tiered vanilla cake with Dulce de leche for a wedding reception. The fondant began white and the rolling in the blue took forever! I also think my favourite baking partner wanted to kill me that day!


The second pictures are from one of my best friend’s wedding cake last August. I made a bunch of cupcakes, a small cake for her son and a massive Vanilla and lemon curd cake. The flowers are lilies and¬†hydrangeas, the wedding colours were light blue and lilac. The ribbon is just ribbon at the bottom… only not edible thing.¬†

The lilies though were a fun process to make– even though only a few made it on the cake. I made a ton! Each had 12 different pieces!





The best thing about doing these cakes is I seem to be working for tools. I got a cake stand and circle pans for the first cake And square pans for the second one. I really do need a tilting decorating stand– any takers? :op
