For Starters, The wedding cake has evolved over the years. Starting off as a simple symbol of fertility, it has transformed itself into an artistic tradition that can have many different artistic interpretations. For many ancient peoples wheat was a symbol of fertility and a bountiful harvest. The Ancient Romans used to throw grains of wheat at the bride and groom to ”wish fertility” to the new couple during their wedding. This custom eventually evolved into bringing little cakes made from wheat to the wedding banquet itself. People would then crumble this cake over the head of the bride to wish the happy couple ”many children”. The guests would then eat the fallen crumbs as a symbol of sharing in the couple’s good fortune.
Fire Engine Cake, What little-boy doesn’t like fire fighters? So why not make a fire engine cake. Simply take three 8×4 cakes and cut off the dome of the cakes in order to have a flat surface on both sides. Then take two of the cakes and place them one on top of the other and glue them together with frosting. Take the third cake and cut it in half stack them on top of each other and stand them on end. Then place it on the end in front of the other cake. This will make the cab of your fire engine. Then decorate with red frosting and pipe on the accents.
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.
So you see how the ideas grow and how wedding cake themes are endless, personal and precious to each couple and their circle of friends and family. Traditional wedding cakes are the circular tiered type but these can be up-dated as a chic stack of diminishing squares. Another up-dating trend is embellishing tiered cakes with asymmetrical, cascading arrangements of vibrant, colorful fresh flowers. Cake Boss’ floral wedding cakes are leaders in this trend. Your baker needs to coordinate with your florist to mix and match the right blooms.
