I started to put together a wedding cake portfolio and this cake has far surpassed my expectations. A really simple design and it ended up being #1 on Cake Central!! My first cake to hit #1 (and hopefully not the last)
Don't worry you'll begin to see a theme with the names of my wedding cakes :)
The main questions I got were how did you keep the lines so straight? and Did you sprinkle then stack or stack then sprinkle?
Well I did the usual fill and stack for each tier and then I ganached each tier so I could get the straightest lines possible for the fondant. I used ganache because it hardens and I was going to be a little rougher than usual with this cake. I covered each tier with marshmallow fondant and then I gave the fondant a little time to harden. I brushed each tier with white chocolate and pressed the sprinkles on. I left a one and a half in circle on the top of each tier except the smallest without sprinkles and filled it with chocolate to help stabilize the tiers as I stacked them. Once it was stacked I stuck a dowel straight down the middle (this resulted in more than a few sprinkles jumping ship) but it was nothing that a small paintbrush and more white chocolate couldn't fix. Attach a simple satin ribbon and voila!
The end product is simple and GORGEOUS!!! I couldn't be more pleased with this cake although I'm still finding sprinkles in the kitchen!! This 4 tier cake took about 4-5 lbs of sprinkles to completely cover.
If you have any other questions about this cake feel free to ask them!!!
