In this cake video you’re gonna see an
example of a DIY small wedding cake. Hi it’s Lorelie. If you wanna build your
skills and confidence to create beautiful cakes and memories subscribe
and ring the bell. This two-tiered wedding cake start with
fresh raspberries, two and a half batches of Italian meringue buttercream with
white chocolate, and layers of orange butter cake. This is a 12 inch on a
14-inch foam board. Generously fill your cake layers with the buttercream and the
raspberries, fresh or frozen but preferably fresh if you can find good
ones in season. Now seal the fruit with another layer of
buttercream and then repeat for the next layer. The third layer goes on top of
that. That part I shared in my live which I did last week, and I will link to that
for you. Now poke a hole into your six-inch board.
The shelf liner holds the cake in place while you’re working on it and the
sticky side of the cake goes onto the board. Repeat the same process as you did with
the 12 inch cakes for the 6 inch cakes. You can trim the cakes if they are a
little lopsided. The lightly frosted look is achieved by
basically crumb coating your cake which I’m doing here. Once you have enough on
your cake lightly scrape to reveal the layers underneath. Even out the top and then repeat that
whole process with the larger tier. This small wedding cake required about
ten cups of white chocolate Italian meringue buttercream, and I had just
enough left over to pipe a pearl border around the top tier. You can use the pan itself to mark the
cake. Place about five or six supports, and then place a piece of parchment
paper, then your top tier. A sharpened wooden dowel holds the whole
cake together. The cake is boxed and ready for a
45-minute drive to the Spirit Horse Farm in Kent Connecticut.
There were vases of gorgeous flowers from the property and the bride just
asked me to clip whatever I wanted and use it on the cake. It was like a dream
come true Scott added some of his magic touches. And the final personal touch is this
adorable Lego bride and groom. As always we celebrate with a cheers to the
newlyweds, this time with our friends on a fall boat ride.
