Not a pro...is it hard to make wedding cakes? - Page 7

post #91 of 118
Thank you so much! I am most certainly a hobby baker, but every once and awhile one of my coworkers will request a cake or some other tastiness from me. My latest request is for a 4 tier (!!) birthday cake, and this thread will help so much when it comes time to build it!

Thanks again!

All I can say is WOW! I was following the "Smooth Buttercream Icing" topic and thanks to JanH I was led to this wonderful section in CC with possibly the most information a newbie could ever ask for. Thanks so much, JanhH! thumbs_up.gif

I read the first 10 or so replies before I realized this was an old thread. I thought to myself "wow, I am impressed everyone is being so nice to her and not getting catty about the question is a wedding cake easy?" icon_lol.gif I think times may have changed a little in the recent past with helping newbies without telling them to "do a search."

I hope to see more helpful replies like this one in the future!

BTW, you can bookmark this thread (if you tend to use one computer mainly) and name it whatever you want. That way you aren't watching the topic and getting email notifications after so many new posts. Unless you want to, that is! icon_biggrin.gif

I posted this awhile ago and really appreciate all the advice, I still use the references and ideas people gave! Thank you. Also I did make my own cake, tried to keep it simple. It tasted delicious bottom tier was wasc, second pink champagne, third and top was double chocolate and cherries.

I spray my pans and then cut out a parchment circle to put on the bottom then spray it again. And I make the cakes about 3 days in advance and freeze them take them out and let them thaw but not completely buttercream them then fondant them. A good stable support system and a good base is the key for a good cake

Ashleymammaof4: You are one brave lady to be tackling your own wedding cake with 4 children(unless they are all grown) or all great helpers. When I do get to have myself a wedding and reception I am planning on doing my own cake and I am definitely keeping in mind what Blakescakes said about storing fondant covered wedding cakes ahead of time. I know that ones without fondant would do just as well.
Box cake. Wrap box in 2 layers of saran wrap, 1 layer of foil. Put wrapped box in garbage bag. Place in freezer.

24 hrs. before serving, place completely boxed & wrapped cake in refrigerator. Several hours before serving, place boxed & wrapped cake on counter to come to room temp. Immediately before display & serving, remove cake from wrapping & box. Eat cake.

This is exactly how these cakes were handled. They were frozen for 2 weeks before serving:

Well the pictures didn't paste, but this is on a forum discussion by him and the cakes arebeautiful Best wishes. God bless you on your marriage.

You've already gotten good advice. Mine would be to keep it simple! You've got a year do you may very well be able to do wonders! But I had a friend who tried this and it nearly killed her lol. Simple and elegant could look as good as anything.

I know, can't thank enough! I can't believe I've never come across this site before. So glad I did though. On paper I feel organized, it's when I go bed I stress takes ages go sleep especially after I've gotten up to feed baby. I think as soon as I've practiced properly it won't be so bad. Offered make my sister who turns 18 this year a two tier looking forward to that, it's weird. It doesn't help I'm a born worrier lol.
