Heart Wedding Cake

Last weekend I did this wedding cake for a couple from church. It is a four tier square cake frosted with buttercream with fondant addons.

The top 6" tier was white with a dulce de leche filling. The next tier, 8", was strawberry with a basic strawberry filling. The next was 10", chocolate with a chocolate hazelnut mousse filling. And the bottom 12" tier was white again, with the same filling as the top tier.

I made the monogram out of fondant then painted it silver. It was actually a lot easier to do than I thought it would be!!

A lot of the time, if my customer thinks they might run short on cake, I'll make a sheet cake since it costs less than adding another layer to the wedding cake. This 12" x 18" sheet cake was divided into individual pieces by a shell border. Each piece had a paper heart on it. It was frosted with a whipped icing from Sam's. The shell border was buttercream.

Congratulations, Kayla and Tyler!!
