Fondant cake tutorials #4: Half white, half chocolate wedding cake tutorial

Here is a short tutorial for wedding cake I’ve made recently. First prepare your cakes, mine had three tiers.
Roll out chocolate fondant, and cut straight on one side. Put it in the middle of your cake, and using sharp knife or other fondant tool cut off the excess, so it look like this. Leave it few mm to 1 cm wider, the white fondant will overlap it. That line you see is in the middle of the cake and mark where to put white fondant.

Roll out white fondant, cut straight on one side and put it next to chocolate fondant, overlap to the line. Again, use knife or fondant tools to cut the excess. It doesn’t have to be perfect, you will cover that later.

Stack your tiers and pour melted, slightly cooled chocolate (keep the cake in the fridge, so chocolate will cool fast) That’s how I did this time. Next time I will try to pour chocolate on first tier, than stack second, pour chocolate on it and then put top tier. I believe it will look better.

Add decorations on white side. I’ve used Wilton’s “Baroque fondant and gum paste mold”

Roll out piece of white fondant (make sure it’s long enough, I’ve made my shorter, but found an solution :) ).

Put some wooden sticks on your working surface.

Put the fondant on the sticks and then gather them to fold the fondant. Then remove the sticks.

Make two drapes and glue them on the sides of the cake. Make sure the drapes cover line between chocolate and white fondant and any imperfection on the cake :)

If you make long enough drapes, you can glue them on the top of the cake. I didn’t, so I had to make a third drape, and put in over the top tier.
I’ve put some strawberries dipped in chocolate on chocolate side of cake.
I’ve made bride and groom topper, but unfortunately don’t have a tutorial for them. Hope to make one soon :)
