The added sweetness, fruits, minced cakes are from the ”Bride’s Pie” which became the norm in 19th century England. Sometimes that pie was even made from mutton, especially if the family was not of the elite or royal lineage, with wealth to have the sweet meats. By the late 19th century, the bride’s pie was out and single tiered plum cakes were the norm or trend of the day. It was not until much later when guest lists expanded that cake or wedding cake, earlier called the ”Bride’s Cake”, that layering started to become trendy. Initially the layers were just mock-ups, much like the mock or fake cakes of today in which it was all either hardened sugar or hardened frosting on the top layers. As you know the use of the fake cake is for pictures now and the first cut. Nowadays the fake cake after the first cut and pictures is taken to the kitchen or back room while the cuttings for the guests are taken from a sheet cake of the same frosting design. This is both for convenience and to keep the cost of the wedding cake down to a minimum.
I am not going to answer these questions by recommending a particular Cake Maker, instead I propose to layout and discuss some of the factors that you should be considering when choosing your Wedding Cake Baker. Location – Ideally you would want your Cake Baker to either be based local to yourself (in order to make attending consultations easier) or else close to the reception venue (meaning that your cake will have less distance to travel on the day and less chance of being damaged or delayed, it will also cut down on any delivery charges). Familiarity – Are you the sort of person who would prefer to get to know your cake maker before you entrust them the responsibility of making your cake? If so then you have two options:
Dinosaur Cake, To make this fun birthday cake idea you will need two nine inch cakes. On the first cake simply cut away about ¼ of the cake so that all that is left is a shape that is a little bigger than a half-circle. Then from the flat side of your half circle shape cut a U shape in the center cutting from the flat side up towards the top rounded side. About two inches up and over. This will be the body of your dinosaur. Next using a stencil cut out the shape of the head and tail from the other cake and put them on the body shape of the other cake. the tail shape goes on one end and the head shape on the other. Simply coat with frosting and add accents.
As a cake decorator who sells their cakes or a home baker who prepares desserts for friends and family, it is important to know all of the facts about fillings, which ones need to be refrigerated and which can be left out at room temperature. Your reputation can depend on it, and you certainly do not want to make anyone sick. We know that butter cream frosting does not hold up well in the heat. Think about a fondant covered cake with a filling. Do you think it’s safe to be out in the heat? Maybe not. Chocolate ganache filling melts if left in the heat for a period of time. Did you know that? It’s deceiving. It sets firmly so you can use it as a filling in sculpted cakes and are able to shape it into truffles that are delicious to eat but when a ganache filled cake sits out in the heat, the ganache gets soft and starts to disintegrate which, if it is a stacked cake, could come tumbling down.
