I am so impressed that I actually have the time to post this Wedding Cake today! Why? Well we usually never get to post anything the day it is made and usually it takes us a week or two to get it on our Baking Blog! Impressive I know :) This Wedding Cake is for a Wedding tomorrow afternoon. The request was that we make a small Wedding Cake to feed around 30 people. The colors were to be mostly white with Dark Blue accents. Everything else left up to me! Why do I love these cakes? The design is completely free from my head, with a little help from my sister ;) I get to thinking and usually I am on point with our cakes. Not so much with this one however. It turned out to look nothing like what I was envisioning. My sister and I pushed ourselves to step out of our comfort zone and try something different with this Wedding Cake.
Originally we were going to do an elegant white fondant covered Wedding Cake, which we did, with a subtle dark blue piping of some kind and vine detailing. Boy were we way off. We ended up trying out a Fondant Draping technique to push us over to a new level, and somehow it worked!?!? I know, I know, once again we have proved ourselves capable of tackling another unknown challenge. Don’t think this Wedding Cake technique came easy. This paticular Wedding Cake ended up taking us alot longer than we planned. We had our ideas of how it should be done. I am sure you all know how that story goes, so to make it short, we figured out a trick to help it go alot smoother. We still weren’t out of the clear. No, we had to figure out how to make the Cake pop with some kind of dark blue detailing. This is where the Daisies come in. Afterall it is Spring and they are a great spring flower! So we added the daisies 2 large and about 33 small flowers. The little Silver Dragees were added to finish the accenting on the cake. A little white swirling and the finished product turned out to be very Elegant!
