How To: Make a Wedding Cake

It was recently the birthday of a friend of mine and my roomie. The birthday girl said that she wanted to make a wedding cake. So we got all the stuff together...and what better to do on a snowy weekend? Let's take this step by step:
Bake Cakes, and Then Let Cool (We did 2 layers of each tier)

Make Dirty Icing and Filling

This is the cake before we did anything extra to it!

Make a moat for filling and then fill between layers (With whatever you want)!

Dirty ice each tier of the cake.

Roll out fondunt evenly. (You can use a wine bottle...or ask the neighbor for a rolling pin! HEHE)

Flatten and cut off extra fondunt.

Place in dowel rods to help support upper layers.

The roomie piping between the layers.

Almost the finished product...we still have to make the flowers to decorate it. But doesn't it look great?! :-)

This was such a blast to do. It was an absolutely amazing weekend with the snow and baking cakes. And to make it even better, I got to see A on webcam both days. That makes for a happy me. :-)

My roomie is thinking about starting a wedding business which does wedding planning, makes cakes, etc. So if you are planning a wedding or know of anybody who is let us know!


  1. Omg I wish I had the patience to make something like know if I was having my vow renewal here I would soooo hire your roomie, she could do my baby shower cakes?!

  2. Very cute! I really like that idea!

    When/if P and I get engaged and if we're in the same area, I'll definitely keep that in mind! :)

  3. Omigosh... it's so pretty. I've never worked with fondant but you made it sound pretty simple. My daughter's first birthday is coming up so i'm going to start practicing with some cakes/cupcakes soon :)
