Non-Refrigerated Fillings, Any of the sleeves of fillings bought at your local cake decorating store should be fine at room temperature. So are the jellies, preservatives and ganache. Whenever using the fillings in the sleeves, remember the dam of frosting around the edge of the cake. You don’t want it oozing out once the cake settles. Trust me on this one. That is why it’s best to use the following technique for fillings. Make sure that you have a thick dam of frosting going around the edge of the cake. Add no higher than a 1/4” high layer of filling. For example, whenever I use lemon filling, I split the cake layer in half, add the dam of frosting, spread the lemon filling and then put the two layers together.
Recommendation – Other people’s weddings are a great opportunity to see examples of a Cake Makers work, so ask yourself have you been to any weddings recently at which you truly loved the look and taste of the cake? If you did then your search might be over if you can get the bakers name. Otherwise do you know of any friends or family members whose judgement you would trust to give you a recommendation of a cake that they may have tasted or seen?
What do I do about a cake cutter? Traditionally, couples pulled out a fancy cake cutter (like Excalibur or something) to make the ceremonial first cut of the wedding cake. The cake cutter then became another memento from the big day. If budget is an issue, we suggest you add a cake cutter to your gift registry as an item a guest might provide for you. Alternatively, bear in mind that the reception halls almost always have a decorative cake cutter you use for your cake cutting. That prevents you from having to buy your own.
Have you thought about staging your masterpiece? This comes next. Be sure to take the wedding cake stand into consideration during your planning phase. While some cakes can be simply placed on flat boards that will not be seen by the general public, others are elaborately displayed on beautiful stands for everyone to see. Keep in mind the simple fact that actual size of the cake table must be in proportion to the actual size of your cake. A table that is too small will make the cake look way too big, while a table that is too large will make it look like a tiny cupcake. And before we forget, your cake table will need a beautiful covering to compliment its strategic location at the wedding reception. Oh, don’t forget the cake knife and cake server. There needs to be a place on the table for these two items as well.
