Challenging Nautical Wedding Cake
The “challenging” portion of this cake came from the icing recipe. The bride requested I use her own recipe for the base cake and all over icing and then wanted it fondant covered. Well….the icing was SUPER sticky & soft, so once placed it could not be shifted or it ripped. ((Sigh)) after 3x+ each of recovering, I decided it was as good as it was going to get and finished it off. Overall I love how it turned out…just wish it had the sharper edges that the soft icing didn’t allow. Base: Butter cake with a blueberry filling, top tier: funfetti. All covered in a Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting and then fondant w/ gum paste, sugar pearls, & sugar diamond accents, wrapped in satin ribbon.
