Start assembling your cake. Take some of the frosting and spread it across the center of the cake board. This will be your ”glue” to secure the cake to the board. Turn one of the parchment lined cookie sheet cake ones onto the cake board. Center it in place on the board before removing the cookie sheet and then peel off the parchment paper. Turn the cookie sheet over and set it on top of the cake layer. Apply a little pressure to make sure that it is secured to the board. Apply frosting to the top of the cake and spread out evenly. Take the next cookie sheet cake and turn over onto the frosted layer. The easiest way to do this is to lift the cookie sheet up against the wide side and then quickly flip it onto the frosted layer. Do not remove the cookie sheet until you shift the cake into place and make it level with the previous layer. Then remove the cookie sheet and peel off the parchment paper. Turn the cookie sheet over and set it on top of the cake layer. Apply a little pressure to make sure that it is secured to the previous frosted layer. Repeat this process again with the next two layers. Trim any excess cake off the sides with a sharp knife so you have a nice even side. Crumb coat and refrigerate until firm.
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.
