Good friends of ours were throwing a wedding reception for their daughter and son-in-law and were kind enough to involve me in their plans. When they asked me to replicate the actual wedding cake I was both nervous and excited. Copying the artistry of another baker as talented as their original wedding cake designer is most definitely a tough act to follow, but I truly enjoyed the experience. Although my version of the cake was smaller and a little less refined, I am pleased with the final product, and I was happy to be able to practice skills I'd never tried before!
Tier 3: Red Velvet cake with Cream Cheese filling and Vanilla Buttercream, covered with black fondant. The scrolling is hand-piped royal icing using a size 4 Wilton tip.
Tier 4: Lemon cake with Raspberry filling and Lemon Buttercream, covered with a base layer of black fondant and accented with strips of white fondant.
I was so happy that the Bride and Groom enjoyed their cake replica- Congratulations to such a SWEET couple! :)
