Teal and Black Tall Button Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 9:35 PM
I couldn't come up with a better name for this cake but it's really tall, and it has black and teal colors with buttons down the front... so I thought the title was descent. Anyway, Amanda was getting married and needed a pretty big cake. She saw one that she loved and adapted it slightly with the color difference and was very gracious to let me put my spin on it. The whole cake is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant and the flowers and decor are all marshmallow fondant too. The top and third tier were Brownie Lovers Cake (chocolate cake layered with a full layer of actual brownies and chocolate ganache) while the second and bottom tiers were Snow White Cake (vanilla cake layered with vanilla cream filling and buttercream). The second tier was 6-inches tall while the other three were 4-inches tall. It's a new trend in wedding cakes and Amanda was brave enough to order it. I think it looks pretty spectacular and I know she also loved the end result.

Because of how big it was, I had to assemble it on location. Luckily, Amanda's parents and bridal party were really great to not stare at me the whole time :) Assembling a wedding cake on site is already stressful enough so having viewers would have been even more nerve racking. Well it turned out that Amanda's parents and bridal party had quite a bit of getting ready to do themselves so it worked out nicely. When her mother saw the cake, she said that it was "So Amanda!" There couldn't have been a better compliment for a caker like me! Oh, so much fun!!
