Blue & Silver Stripes Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 9:55 PM
Heather & Craig needed a simple but elegant cake for their marriage at The Castle in Layton. When I met them at the tasting, I thought they were SO kind and just an all around fun couple so I was thrilled to make this cake from them. Heather had seen a similar cake I made for a previous wedding and wanted to incorporate her wedding colors. They were having a winter wedding but were firmly against having a Christmas theme or a snowflake theme so we kept it simple with silver and blue.

The cake tiers were 6-inches tall a piece so it was a very heavy and very tall cake. The top tier was Strawberry Cheesecake Cake (strawberry cake layered with cheesecake filling and buttercream), the middle tier was Rocky Mountain Road Cake (chocolate cake layered with mini-marshmallows, chocolate chips, and chocolate buttercream... we left the chopped almonds out) and the bottom tier was White Raspberry Kiss Cake (white chocolate cake layered with raspberry filling and white chocolate ganache). Wow, that was a mouthful!

Now for the details. The cake was covered in marshmallow fondant. I used the paneling method in which I roll out fondant in the size of each side of the tiers. Then, I essentially put the MMF on the cake just like a contractor would with drywall except I use buttercream :) I then cut out stripes of gray and blue and placed them on the cake so that they overlap. Lastly, I painted the gray stripes with edible silver luster dust to give it more shine. Ah, so much fun!!!

I ran into Heather last week at the "What a Woman Wants Expo" and she said she loved the cake :) From that order, I actually became one of the preferred vendors at The Castle and she was so happy that her wedding cake was the catalyst for the connection (I was thrilled too :) Thank you both for the trust and support in making your wedding cake!
