Black and White Wedding Cake

I received a request Thursday afternoon to do a wedding cake for a reception Saturday afternoon. This is the quickest I have ever completed a wedding cake (especially considering that it was my work week on and I had to work every day during those three days plus give a talk and play the piano for a Stake Baptism on Saturday morning)! This is also the first time I have made a square wedding cake. I e-mailed the bride pictures of cakes to see what styles of decorating she liked best, then I got right to work.

The cake itself is chocolate fudge with vanilla buttercream frosting. The cake top is fresh flowers that I ordered from a florist. The rest of the cake is edible.


  1. It looks great, Valerie. You are becoming quite proficient with this gum paste and fondant stuff.

  2. Awesome job, Valerie! I hope you made some $ on the cake. :-)

  3. I hope you charged extra for the short-order request! The cake is beautiful, and now I'm craving chocolate fudge cake with vanilla cream frosting.
