I was busy last week with the preparation of this beautiful wedding cake. I made this wedding cake as a favor for a sweet friend of mine. The original design is from danish: KageKompagniet. I started making the gum paste flowers and leaves. I made lots of 5-petals, petunias, and small blossoms in various sizes. The colors were from white to three different shades of peach.

I used my favorite silicone veiner for the sugar flowers. I dusted the flowers with peach and cream luster dust and I gave the leaves some green petal dust dissolved in clear alcohol so they got a bit shiny.

Then it was time to bake the three chocolate cakes. I must say that my new oven is now officially tested πŸ™‚ We had a wonderful smell of chocolate in the house the rest of the day.

The next day when the cakes were cold and ready to level the fun started. Since I got my wonderful Agbay Cake Leveler it has been a joy to level my cakes. Before I knew it, all three cakes were sorted and ready to be filled.

I filled the cakes with raspberry and chocolate mouse and crumb coated them with vanilla buttercream. The cakes were covered with white rolled fondant and piped snail trails in royal icing. I stacked two of the cakes and used Wilton’s plastic dowels for extra support. The small tier was placed on white cake pillars also from Wilton.

Then the only thing left was to attach the sugar flowers and leaves with royal icing. I must say that I was very satisfied with the cake and so was the happy couple πŸ™‚

Happy Caking!
