Wowzers!!!!!!!!!!!! Is the above really my cake on Cake Central Magazine??? Yes, it is 🙂
I few months back I was surprised with an email inviting me to submit a “wedding piece” inspired by the inspiration board above. At first I was ecstatic then the panic sunk in… I realized I’d be submitting my work to a magazine filled with amazing eye-candy from professional sugar artist and honorable cake decorators from around the world. I kind of freaked out but took a deep breath and acted as if I knew what I was doing.
I began by drafting a few ideas and challenging myself to go outside of my comfort level. Although I had made mini wedding cakes in the past, they had never been “real” size which means I really had to put my skills to the test. This was the first time ever trying to decorate a big cake let alone with marshmallows!!
I used three square styrofoam cake dummies to form the cake and a styrofoam ball to top the cake. Then I completely coated them all with ivory sugar. Now, the fun decorating part began…
Roses, Frames, and Pearls, oh my…
Adding a Love Birds Nest to the mix 🙂
I had such a blast playing cake decorator that this may just be the first of many Marshmallow Wedding Cakes to come 😉
When you’re a one-man-show you also have to pretend you know about photography LOL
Here’s a fun behind-the-scenes photo of my husband photographing the cake
