This might seriously be my favorite boy cake of all time. It screamed to my inner geek! It was a three tiered chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling. I covered each tier with the desired color to match the superhero. Superman got a bright blue, Spiderman got red and batman got a dark blue to be the night sky. To create the Batman and Superman logos I printed an outline of the logos and traced it over the corresponding fondant color with the x acto knife. To be honest Batman’s logo was a lot easier to cut than superman’s, a lot less nooks and crannies, and placing it on the other colored fondant took some time and patience. Once the logos were placed I rolled out more black fondant and using a pastry blade, I cut out different rectangle shapes for the city scape. I did the same for the yellow window lights but on a smaller scale. Great Superman and Batman layer were finished, all that was left was Spiderman. Before creating the webs I stacked the three tiers using buttercream and towels. Stacked I made the eyes the same way I did the logos for Batman and Superman. Once in place I slowly piped the webbing with think black buttercream using a #2 tip. It took some trial and error and at one point I had to carefully wipe all of the buttercream off and start all over. Thankfully it turned out perfectly and the mom and the cute little boy couldn’t have been more excited. That smile on his face made it all worth it
These delicate little beauties went along with the big beautiful all white wedding cake I posted about the other day. The cupcakes were the wedding favors and made to look like roses. I used white cupcake liners and wrapped each one in a paper lace wrapper then placed in the blue individual boxes as soon as they were frosted.
To create the rose, I piped beginning in the center and moved outward, the opposite way I normally frost cupcakes. This created the swirl that resembles a rose; I used mint leaves to complete the look. Between the buttercream frosting and the mint leaves, the cupcakes smelled divine!
This is the LARGEST wedding cake I have ever done! I've made some beautiful wedding cakes in the past, but this one takes the cake. It was FIVE tiers tall and I was terrifying to drive across town with it! I think I gave Jack a mini heart attack when I screeched a few times because it moved. The cake was simple, classic, and stunning. All the tiers were solid white, besides one tier in the middle that had the letter “G” covered in pearl dust.
Each tier had a strain of sugar paste pearls that I made using a silicone mold. I powdered using a paintbrush with the same pearl dust as the letter “G”. The final touches were a few simple pink roses.
Although the cake was so big that we had to use a cart to move it into the reception hall, I love how it came out and how beautiful it was on the display table!
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side.
