Wedding cake decoration
Laura and Toni celebrated their wedding yesterday, and their wedding cake was topped with this unique fondant cake decoration.

The couple wanted their dogs to be included in the decoration, and the groom was to have boxing gloves in his hands. The decoration bride’s dress mimicked that of the bride’s actual wedding dress.

 

 

Congratulations, Laura and Toni!

Wedding cake decorations

Yesterday a friend of mine got married, and I had the honour to make their wedding cakes’ decorations. The ideas for these decorations came from the couple, and the decorations tell a story close to their heart.

 

Congratulations, Paavo and Hanna!

Folkrace decoration for a wedding cake

I was asked to make a very unique wedding cake decoration for folkrace enthusiasts. Because the cars rarely have smooth sides, they were supposed to be dented also on the decoration.

 

Congratulations “Hasse” and “Nipa”!

Birch wedding cake

Birch wedding cake

At the end of the summer a recently married co-worker of mine asked if I could make him and his wife a “post wedding cake”, as for some reason or another the bride couldn’t get the raspberry and white chocolate mousse cake she would have wanted.

At the wedding all the guests’ name tags were made out of wood, so the cake was supposed to be a birch disc with the bride and groom’s names on top as if burned into the wood. The lettering came directly from the wedding decorations, which I copied the best I could. For the burned wood affect I first piped a mirror image design on a clear plexiglass with royal icing, and once it had hardened, I pressed the design on a sheet of fondant. Then I painted over the design with a mix of brown luster dust and vodka. The royal icing “stamp” worked so well, I think I’ll use the technique again in the future!

Congratulations once more, Tanja and Joni!
