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.
In terms of the decor of the cake for 2011 there seems to be a trend of elaborate decorations for the cake. Such as mimicking the bride’s dress (lace or flowers) or some elaborate part of the theme of the wedding. I have seen beautiful crisp white cakes with what look to be butter cream frosting dipped or sprayed Vanilla wafers that wrap around each layer of the cake. The sugar flowers are still big, along with butterflies, and now etchings or drawings of trees and entire forests on the cake. The colors of the traditional cake is usually white to denote the purity of the bride and the whole ceremony. Now this year and next, that trend has been tossed out the window to replicate the brides’ wedding colors, or the couple favorite colors. Much like the theme of the Groom’s Cake. The Groom’s Cake was first introduced in early American wedding ceremonies. It was traditional for the groom’s cake to be chocolate and maybe decorated with the groom’s hobbies displayed in sugar decorations on the cake. Now though through contemporary times the Groom’s cake is not used much other than in the southern states of America.
Swimming Pool Cakes – Not with real water, we promise! Picture this: the top cake layer made to look like an endless swimming pool. This can be done by cutting the top square edge off of the cake (like a router would carve out the edge of a wooden table), to simulate an endless pool. Figurines of the bride and groom’s heads could be sticking out of the top of the pool, with shades and sunhats on, holding cocktails of course!
Another addition is placing wide ribbons around the base of each tier of the cake. Grosgrain or satin ribbon is typical or the baker can create faux ribbons from the frosting. Mimicking a pattern or a motif from the bridal gown is another great trend which helps to coordinate the wedding as a whole. The cake designer might duplicate in frosting the gown’s lace or embroidery pattern, or copy the bride’s unique necklace. For a more playful look, he or she may simply put some jewelry on the cake, like crystals or faux pearls to mirror the bride’s jewelry. Meanwhile, the traditional wedding cake is still abundant with frosting flowers, swags and swirls.
