Let’s face it, one of the best parts of the wedding is the cake. (General merriment and eternal love aside, of course) And before the wedding comes the bridal shower, which involves gift-giving, more merriment, and an opportunity for another special dessert.
For a wedding shower, you may want to go with something elegant that will please a crowd. I’d recommend a design that matches your decor and a flavor that will please the majority of the shower guests.
This cake is vanilla on the first tier and chocolate on the second. A little fondant makes for a nice smooth result that was the centerpiece of the party table. If you’re wondering, yes the chocolate fondant tastes a bit different. This one is chocolate colored and flavored, and tastes like a Tootsie Roll!
And when it’s time for the big day, something a little more extravagant:
Note: These cakes were NOT for the same bride. And I did not pick the colors for the second cake. The orange and yellow were their wedding colors. It actually turned out to be a very pretty wedding set-up (yes, the colors threw me off at first). This cake is also fondant with a fondant heart spray on top.
It’s so wonderful to feel as though you’re helping someone with their special day by making a pretty cake. As always, if you have an upcoming wedding or shower, I’d be honored to work with you to design a cake!
