Christina and Chris' Wedding Cake

June 6, 2009

Chris and Christina are our next door neighbors who were brave enough to hire me to do thier wedding cake. I did a 50th wedding anniversary cake last July, but I hadn't yet had the opportunity to do a wedding cake. Christina and I designed the cake together, marshmallow fondant and edible pearls. We had initially thought of doing a three tier cake with an additional sheet to the side. But I decided instead to make it a four tier cake.

The 14 inch and 8 inch tiers were covered in Cornelli lace made out of royal icing. I also used royal icing to attach the edible pearls. Since royal icing dries hard, I knew that it would travel and hold up better than had I used butter cream. Ribbon was used around the bottom of the cake to incorporate the wedding colors.
I used a plain square for the base, the 14 inch was too large to fit on a round cake stand. I hope to one day have a square silver cake stand to add to the display of my wedding cakes.
