Mini Wedding Cakes

Image

There is no actual wedding really, I just had leftover cupcakes and turned them to mini cakes just to please my creativity and curiosity to see if I can do it.

I crumbled the plain cupcakes without any icing on top (5 or 6 I think), stir some cream in to make it a dough, then rolled it out with a rolling pin, cut out in three different sizes and put it in the fridge for a day or so.

Next step was that I covered the mini cakes with marzipan, then again Stacked them together to make 3 tiers.

After this I painted on them with Dusky Liliac edible lustre from Sugarflair. I cut out few little flowers and dusted them too.

Little Green Wedding Cake

Hi there,

It’s been a busy but really lovely and warm (FINALLY) weekend here in Cambridge. A Hungarian friend of mine, who’s also my neighbour got married yesterday, and she wanted me to make their wedding cake. I have never done a wedding cake before, but since this was a small family gathering and she asked so nicely to make it I said yes.

Therefore I made myself a similar cake for Easter, only for practicing the recipe and of course the technique.

Here comes the “sketch” cake, which was blue with spring flowers -looks a little bit like a hat 🙂 :

I used the same recipe for both, only that for the actual wedding cake I put two more eggs + the additional extra flower and sugar each in the bottom cake and top cake as well, so it raised taller. I filled them with yummy chestnut cream, which is basically chestnut puree + double cream whipped together. This is very Hungarian, and very delicious! 🙂

Here is the little green wedding cake, as it was a green coloured wedding. I made 37 white rosebuds last week, and used 31 on the cake:

My cake made it to the wedding, and the guests were delighted 🙂

Madeira cakes

Last week I’ve bought some Madeira cakes to try out something. I cut these two little portions out with a round cutter, I soaked the cakes with Rum and filled with some Nutella. It came out nice. But the main reason for doing this was to make the cake little less boring taste-wise. I wanted to try out this decoration, to cover the little cakes and didn’t want to just use a plain sponge. For decorating first I covered it with a layer of marzipan and then with the sugar paste.
