More than a Wedding Cake Recipe
6-Part Series for Making an Ivory Striped Wedding Cake with Edible Pearls and Gum Paste Roses
I made this 3-tier Ivory Striped Wedding Cake for Bine’s best friend, Sarah.
She wanted something that looked like this Maisie Fantaisie cake.
I have never made a 3-tier cake. Nor have I ever made a wedding cake. So this was a very good learning experience for me.
And I learnt a lot (with the help of some awesome tutorials)!
The main thing I learnt is that I most definitely DO NOT like the level of stress that such a cake comes with. I think I will stick to birthday cakes and 2-tiers from now on.
But thank you Bine and Sarah for giving me the opportunity to try this.
And Sarah, you looked beautiful!
I figured I might as well tackle everything, from ingredients and recipes right down to driving the dowel through the heart of the cake like a stake, so that you don’t have to do the amount of searching I had to.
So this post is much more than just a wedding cake recipe. It is a step-by-step guide to baking and icing a wedding cake.
I had originally planned to write one post, but man alive! When I finished writing it, I had 14 pages, so I have decided to divide it up into 6 sections.
