I've seen many beautiful wedding dress cakes in the gallery. How is it done? I was just asked to make my first paid cake (other than family) and really want to do a good job. All I was told was that they want cake, no fruit filling and it needs to serve about 20 people, design is up to me. I would like to give this type of design a try...any tips or suggestions are very appreciated!
use that link. I used it to make mine. It's actually really easy. The hardest part I found was that my bride had the "rouching" in the front.... The pic of my cake is below.
There is another style where you use a heart shape pan to do the bodice of the bride in her dress. Fairly simple.
I think you haven't been specific enough! There are tons of different bridal dress cakes.
From the Barbie style one PP posted a link for, to the two tiered cake with the buttons and bow and 'skirt' for the bottom.
My favorite (that I hope to do some day) is this design
Someone even did a tiered version of this recently and it was incredibly lovely.
Bizatchgirl-- I am looking to make the one that you pictured, preferably with a round cake.
This is what I am hoping to make. (same link as Bizatchgirl)
Sorry, mamanof3, I haven't done that cake yet. Hopefully someone else can chime in. If not, PM the person who made it and ask for some tips!
