Fall Wedding Cake Take 2

Fall is the new HOT wedding season and we are loving the fall wedding trends. Metallics mixed with earth tones,  and textured buttercream are common in the fall wedding cake department. Whether the cake is a large multi tiered cake to feed a few hundred guests or small cake for a more intimate wedding, the same love and detail goes into each of our cakes. Take a look at how this 2 tier fall wedding cake came together. 

First, multiple brown fondant 
shades are made and weighed. 

Next, they are partially mixed. 

The fondant is then rolled out....

and applied to the base tier of the cake.

The edges are pinched for a rough look. 

Lastly, the cake is smoothed out 
to get rid of any imperfections. 

The cake is marked and....

doweled for support. 

Next, textured is added to 
give the cake a "wood" look.

A tool is used to portion the
 wood to look like "planks".

Using a baller tool "knots" 
are created in the wood.

A combination of lusters are mixed and....

applied to the cake. 

Dark edible paint is brushed
 on to add dimension. 

The knots are filled in using the edible paint.

Metallic gold paint is added for a special touch.

The top tier is smoothed iced. 

Then texture is added to the buttercream.

The cake is stacked on the bottom tier.

More dowels are added for support.

Grape vine is cut to smaller lengths. 

The twigs are added to the cake. 

Next, gum paste flowers are added. 
(These were made in advanced, as
they require a lot of dry time).

Edible gold paint is added to
 the flowers for a finishing touch. 

The finished product...what do you think?!
