Lighthouse Cakes – Is your wedding near a really cool lighthouse? We’ve seen a lot of lighthouse cake toppers, but we also had a client who had her baker create an entire cake as a lighthouse. Another client had the two bottom layers of the cake as tiered rounds, and the top half of the cake was a lighthouse and its surrounding area, right down to the boating docks below it. Sand Cakes – Not real sand! Many bakers use crushed crumbs, like graham crackers, or brown sugar. The base of the cake can be covered with ”sand”, or the top of each exposed layer or the entire cake! Our favorite, is when a pile of ”sand” is formed at the base of the cake and spread out on the table a couple inches around it. Something can then be written in the sand, i.e. ”Charlie and Beth Forever”, or ”CV + BE, 9/12/08”. You get the picture. Nautical Cakes – Go Nautical! Anchors, ropes, buoys, wooden docks, life preserver rings, etc. These can be made from marzipan, subtly sprinkled around the cake, placed as the base, or used as a cake topper.
Always refrigerate to let the frosting set. Once it’s set, cover the cake in fondant. Set your cake in a cake box that has room for it to fit without the fondant touching the top or sides of the box. Refrigerate again to set. This is your insurance policy when you deliver the cake. If the party is at your house, and it’s cool inside, you can leave it out. Refrigerating this kind of cake makes it easier to slice so that the filling doesn’t ooze out of every slice. You want a nice presentation. When you cake is removed from the refrigerator, please remember to give it time to ”sweat.” Don’t touch it during this period or you will leave a mark. Let the cake come to room temperature. Usually, by the time you travel to your destination, and it’s time to serve the cake, the fondant will be okay to slice and the dewy, shiny look will be gone.
