Monogram In Burgundy & Ivory

I couldn't wait to do this cake! The colours were so vivid. I used Americolor Burgundy and Wilton Chocolate Brown to get the perfect Merlot colour to match the couple's wedding invites. Their mongram is handwiting in royal icing on a curved gumpaste disc...center tier. The most complicated monogram I've EVER seen..hahaha!

I designed it from 3 other cake photos the bride brought in to the consultation. We took the top tier from one cake, the bottom from another and the middle from a third cake.

Stunning. The cake is perfect in every way. The monogram is fab! Great job!

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

No contour pans...I just trimmed the sharp corners off before I rolled on the fondant. I do it mostly so my fondant doesn't crack at all on the corners, but clients keep saying they love the look! haha

I know that it's already been stated here but...BEAUTIFUL!!!!

sarahscakes Says... 9 years ago

Wow! Thats gorgeous. I might steal your idea.

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

Just as advice...to make a gumpaste plaque to fit your cake...make your shape and dry it INSIDE the curve of the baking pan that is the next size UP from your cake. (For example, this was a 9" cake, but I knew with fondant it would be about a 9.5" cake...so I dried the gumpaste plaque on the curve of my 10" baking pan. It fit perfectly onto the contour of the cake!! Also, I made the fondant "swags" even by cutting out the semi-circles with a cereal bowl. The gumpaste plaque was cut out using a beer ...

So perfect and so beautiful! This is one to be very proud of for sure! Excellent!

Godiva Says... 9 years ago

THis is one beautiful cake! I absolutely love it...I can't imagine the amount of work that went into cuttiing and then placing the swags...How did you manage to get it on in one piece?

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

I cut them in fondant then let them dry for a few minutes (10 or so). It was easier to attach them (brushed the backs with a little bit of warm water to stick) when they were a bit firmer than freshly rolled out fondant.

the border was piped in royal icing...pretty stiff

redstar Says... 9 years ago

Tremendous! Fantastic! Gorgeous!!! One of my favorite cakes ever

CAKELADYFL Says... 9 years ago

What a beautiful cake...I am curious about the piping in the border. I am new in the cake business and have read about a "more liquid fondant" to pipe borders. Was this the technique you used or is it royal or butter cream icing? You are amazing and I would love to see more pictures of your cakes. Good luck with the British Wedding Cake magazine! It already looks to me like a winner ;-)
