ROSE-PIPED WEDDING CAKE
This happy rose confection may seem couture, but just about anyone is really capable of re-creating it. Start with a simple fondant cake. Next, print out our template of intangible roses, place parchment paper over it, and outline with a piping bag of royal icing. After dry, peel the paper from the roses that are piped, and stick the layouts to the cake using glue paste that is been blended with hot water.
CRUSHED-CANDIES WEDDING CAKE
As fun as it will be to eat to make, our sparkling marmalade-candy cake has a small muscle—and that’s about it. Then press on the glittering crushed pieces to the sides of a buttercream cake.
HEART WEDDING CAKE
The heart was believed to function as the source of most human emotions. Though modern science demonstrates otherwise, the phrase “giving your heart” continues to be the best approach to express that you’d give anything for the one you love. Jay Qualls of the Tennessee-based Maples Wedding Cakes printed our designs covered them in parchment, delineated them then transferred them onto fondant.
WHITE-CHOCOLATE PANELED WEDDING CAKE
Architectural yet familiar, our white-chocolate panel cake needs neither culinary abilities nor layout abilities (other than those you learned in preschool). Simply purchase a buttercream cake from a pack of chocolate panels from chocolatier Christopher Norman and a neighborhood bakery. The remainder is a cakewalk: fill the ledges with another fruit or gold raspberries, and Stick panels of varying heights onto the tiers.
RED, WHITE, AND BLUE WEDDING CAKE
This Lafayette Grand Cafe & Bakery fromage blanc cheesecake has six tiers of berry-adorned good. The layers are flavored with vanilla bean, lemon zest, and black pepper, and sit atop an all-natural cornmeal crust.
A WEDDING CAKE WITH DIFFERENT STRIPES
Here, we place the idea of icing on ice, relying instead on unadorned pastel layers for graphic appeal. Coconut pound cake, tinted with gel-paste food coloring, serves as the foundation, while white fondant and passion-fruit curd rests on top (the curd can also be between each layer).
MINIATURE CHOCOLATE-COVERED WEDDING CAKES
Fancy: Yes. (Perch the cakes on a wire rack so excess glaze doesn’t pool.) Then we lightly pulled a toothpick to generate the designs.
JAPANESE SPONGE WEDDING CAKE
The filling is lemon-ginger mousse, as well as the designs could be customized (wedding crest or monogram, anyone?).
TEARDROP WEDDING CAKE
Give your cake a dab of whimsy. Order up a fondant cake, plus a pail of fondant, from a bakery. Add food coloring to get the colors that are right, and roll out into a thin sheet.
OMBRE WEDDING CAKE
Wendy Kromer- Schell and Caitlin Brown concealed blood orange and passion-fruit curds in tinted vanilla poundcake because of this buttercream-dotted confection. Bake yours a bit larger than desirable that browned edges might be trimmed off, showing the vibrant ombre layout underneath.
WEDDING PETIT FOURS
Soaked in brown sugar, butter, and honey glaze, these geometric minis – Caitlin and Schell Brown resemble honeycombs. We topped them off with whipped cream and a serving of candied kumquats.
