Amanda contacts me a few months back about doing her wedding cake. She wanted a three-tier vanilla cake to feed 100. The cakes were to be square with polka dots, middle tier turned at an angle and their monogram on top.
We baked two 12″, two 9″ and two 6″ square cakes. We placed the bottom of each tier on boards, filled with icing, placed the top cake of each tier on top and covered with buttercream. We used a polka dot stencil to get the dots perfectly place and then began stacking the cakes with dowel rods as support. We placed the second tier at an angle, followed by the top-tier straight so that the monogram would show clearly from the front. We piped buttercream dots as well as a pearl border on top and bottom of each tier.
The monogram was made the night before with royal icing so that it would harden. After it was placed on the top tier and 8 hours of baking/decorating, the cake was complete.
Congrats to you both. We pray for abundant blessings to fall upon your marriage.
