Advice/tips for grooms cake
Hi everybody! I’m new here and fairly new at cake decorating as well. I have some questions about an upcoming grooms cake I’m doing for my brother in law.
He’s into photography, hiking and Irish music. I originally wanted to somehow incorporate all those things on a cake, but I’m not seeing how I can do it and still have it look good. Since he’s family, I want it to be a personal cake though!
What I was thinking of doing was making a shamrock cake out of three heart shaped cakes, with the stem cut out of a sheet cake. Then, piping the names of the bands he likes on one “leaf”, piping the name of him and his bride and the wedding date on the upper leaf, and then something to do with a camera and hiking on the other leaf.
I did try to scult a camera out of rice krispies, which turned out well, but I’m not confidant that I could cover it in fondant and get details right on it. And then I thought of hiking boots to represent his love of hiking, but I have no idea how to do that. A friend told me that it would probably be better to not even worry about the camera and boots, which would help out alot, but I still want the cake to be all about my brother in law!
Please help me out! Thanks! :)
