Heart Shaped Valentines Cake-Royal Icing Recipe

Welcome to Wedding Cakes For You Cake Tutorials
I’m Lorelie and in this video you will learn how to create this beautiful valentines day
cake using royal icing and buttercream. The royal icing recipe starts with three egg
whites, 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 lb. of confectionery sugar, and a squeeze of lemon
juice. Mix that on high for 5-10 minutes. keep it covered with a damp cloth as it dries
out very quickly. This is a batch of my favorite Italian Meringue
Buttercream. I added red, a few tablespoons of cocoa, a
dash of pink, 1/4 cup of confectionery sugar. This is my butter cake recipe which you can
find in my book Wedding Cakes With Lorelie Step by Step on Amazon and also in eBook form
at my website. The links are below and in the card above. The filling is Orange Apricot marmalade and
chocolate ganache.Pop your cake into the fridge before crumb coating with the ganache. Final coat goes on with an icing tip number 789. Create two rows of buttercream ruffles using
a large petal tip. And the drop strings are made with a number
three round tip. Just touch the cake with the icing, squeeze
and let the string drop naturally. Move the tip to the right and then touch the
icing to the surface of the cake when you’re happy with the length and the drape of the
string. You can pipe little swiss dots with the same tip
number three. You can also use a number two. Use a damp brush to fix any of the imperfections. Cornelli lace is made with the number one
round tip. These are just squiggly lines that don’t overlap
each other. This is gold dust powder and I mixed it with
Almond extract, but you can use vodka. You brush it on to the edges of the ruffles
after your frosting hardens. A tiny jewel on top completes the design and
the sweet little sign. Wedding Cakes For You provides aspiring bakers
with the recipes and steps for building skills and confidence to create beautiful cakes and
cherished memories. Thanks for being here and I’ll see you in
the next video.

  2. I'm so glad this one became a video. ❤ I think the piping on this cake is so gorgeous. ❤ Thank you for showing it.

    May I ask why does royal icing need lemon juice and cream of tartar? Does it change the consistency?

  3. Fantastic tutorial showing all the steps! I never thought of marmalade in any cake before. I am excited to see that you have a buttercream book published and can give this gal some more ideas. Thanks for all the links, and your cake is just Lovely! ~*Shana
