Wedding Cake v.2015
This past weekend, I made a wedding cake for 225 people in my 300 square foot apartment! The challenge became sooo real as I realized that I only have one usable counter space and a dining room table for all of the preparations. However, with a little creative thinking and using all possible surfaces in my apartment (excluding anything bathroom related), the cake made it one piece and was enjoyed by many.
The flavours of the cake were: chocolate, caramel and vanilla. It had a dark chocolate and cocoa nib sponge that I soaked in espresso and chocolate simple syrup, a vanilla mousseline cream (buttercream and pastry cream) and a thick layer of caramel brushed on between all of the layers. The bride’s chosen wedding colours were white, black and gold so I figured that the inside of the cake should match the outside.
Anyway, here are the pics…
