6. Castle Cake, Ok for this fancy castle cake you are going to need four 8 inch square cakes, again cut the dome off the top of each cake so that they are flat on both sides. Next you are going to stack three of the of the cakes one on top of the other with pink frosting in between to hold them together. Next take the forth cake and cut it into quarters placing two pieces in the center of the three you have all ready stacked. Now you can begin frosting the cake with a crumb coat of icing. Simply use four ice cream cones; invert them and place one on each corner of the cake. These will be the towers of our castle. Just cover the entire cake with frosting and add accents, like doors and windows with different colored icing.
What’s that you say? You have no idea who will be baking your wedding cake? If you don’t have a particular baker in mind, you have a bit of homework ahead of you. Shop around and get some good recommendations from family and friends. Browse the yellow pages and the internet as they are both valuable informational resources. If you happen to be surfing the web you will see that many bakers today are posting photos of some of their masterpieces. As a sort of masterpiece cake gallery, they showcase what they are capable of producing. This will jog your imagination as to what you would like your own wedding cake to look like.
The Chocolate Cake, Chocolate cakes are absolutely one of the all time favorites. There is a big selection of chocolate cakes, with varying ingredients. An important element in a chocolate cake is the intensity of chocolate, especially in devil’s food cake. In the United States, the most common type of chocolate cake is the butter cake. The European chocolate Génoise Cake has a spongy texture with minimal amounts of fat. Other types include the flowerless chocolate cake and red velvet cake.
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.
