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.
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!
When it’s time to make a dessert for a crowd, normal sheet cakes will not fit the bill. It is time for you to step out of your comfort zone and make a massive cake. It’s not as hard as you think. There are two very important things that you should have in your kitchen to make your massive cake a success — three or four heavy duty rimmed baking sheets (depending on how tall you want to make your cake) and parchment paper.
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.
