  4. To make a 14" square wedding cake ? When I only have a recipe up to 12"?

    Thanks for all your answers so far. I'm getting there, but a few more details might help. Obviously this is a question for those of you who know about cake making - it is no good trying to "calculate" from other sizes. My tin is 14" square. The largest recipe I can find is 12". Some of you have suggested times by 1.4 or 1.5. I guess this is along the right lines, but can't afford to make a mistake. Do these extra details help ? Many Thanks.

I would like to find one that is big enough to have our names and date engraved on it, but since we are having a very small wedding (50 or less) we don't want it to be too big for the cake. Any suggestions? We are getting married May 25, 2007 so I need to get it fairly soon so that I can get the engraving done. Thanks!

And also, what would work best to put them in? Square Cupcake liners are almost impossible to find! Any Suggestions????? Well although the answers were interesting...not quite what I was looking for.

  17. How do I go about assembling a 3 tier wedding cake using store bought cakes?

    How do I go about assembling a 3 tier wedding cake using store bought cakes? Okay, I am abroad and I can't find a bakery here who'll do a traditional Canadian style wedding cake. My local grocery store bakery has agreed to do 3 layered carrot cakes with creamcheese frosting and filling. I wanted a round 3 tiered cake- they will only do square cakes- one 6 serving, one 8 and one 12. Can I tier them myself and have it look okay? How do I do it? Thanks for any help you can give:-) xo I don't want to just 'put them on top of eachother'. I want to know how I can properly do it, so I don't squish or damage the cakes or cause the middle to sink. I don't want any columns visible- I like the look of the cakes alone. I'm in Sweden, the south of Sweden. And yes one bakery would do a 2 tiered cake (after I showed a picture of one)with 20 servings for over 200 dollars! When you say dowels- how many? Should all be the length of all 3 or some 1 some 2 and some or one all 3??? I'm sorry but I think over 200 dollars for 20 servings is insane----that was a plain cake---no decoration just frosted!!!

  18. How do I cover a square fruit cake with sugarpaste?

    I want to cover a square cake with one piece of sugarpaste. Do I start at the bottom of one edge, lift up the paste and smooth over, or should I lay the paste on the top of the cake then smooth over each corner in turn. It is a wedding cake, so I don't want any split corners or joins showing. Thanks

  19. How much did your wedding cake cost?

    I really like 3 tiered offset square cakes with ribbon detailing and only a few selectively placed flowers...similar to these (without as many flowers - I love the green one): However, the big cake (green one) would cost almost $500 (by the time you added flower cost and delivery) and the little one would be $350-$400. I don't live in Texas, just found that website and liked their cake designs and would get a local place to do mine. I'm just wondering how much did you pay for your wedding cake and what kind was it? I'm not too cool with paying that much $ for a cake...and I'd have less than 100 people at my wedding.

  22. Wedding cake options?

    So i was wondering whats your opinions on wedding cakes. Do you like the tradition kind with about 3-5tiers and a bride & groom on top? For example - Do you like a traditional wedding cake with a few tiers and flowers not bride and groom? For example - Do you like a modern wedding cake with tiers and a bride and groom? For example - Do you like a modern wedding cake with iced flowers or decorations? For example - Do you like the cupcake / fairy cakes look with about 20 small cakes and 1 big one? For example - Do you like the wedding cake with two tiers and a flower on the top? For example - Do you like the fairytale wedding look cake that's all fantasy? For example - Do you like the wedding cakes that have a stand and are separate cakes? For example - Also, if you like any kind of other cake, what would it be? can yodon'tclude pictures, Is it ok ifalmost a sponge filling? as i dont like fruit cake because i understand alomost every wedding cake is fruit. x Sorry about some spellings, my laptop has a mind of its own. I was meant to say - If i didnt list the type of cake or you would like to say a different type can you please add pictures if you can and is it ok if i have a sponge filling in my cake as most wedding cakes are fruit cakes and we dont like fruit cake. x

  30. Does anyone know where I can get ideas for wedding cake designs?

    My mom is making my wedding cake because there will only be 5 people, including myself and my fiance. I don't want anything fondant, but I want it to be relatively simple. I want some pink in it as well, but if I could find a design, I could change the colors, to colors I want. My mom took cakedecorating years ago, but I just don't want to do anything too advanced. I want small cakes, a 2-tier, so we can freeze the top one. I don't care if it's square or round, but I kinda like the square cakes. I am including a link below of the first cake I picked out, but it's fondant, so I decided against it unless I can't find anything else. I'm getting married the first week of July, so I need to get an idea quick! ^picture 1T

  36. Can I use poured fondant on my wedding cake?

    I am hoping to make my own wedding cake (2-tiered square cake). I have had a go at a homemade rolled fondant, but it dried out too quickly (or I was too slow) and I had cracks appear in the finish. I've heard that poured fondant is smoother without so much effort!! However, I have also heard that poured fondant can stay 'sticky' and shiny and not dry off like a rolled fondant would. Can anyone offer any advice here? Is poured fondant a good option? Is there perhaps a specific poured fondant recipe I should be using - there are so many out there, I don't know where to start! Thanks. :)

Is it easier to work with the cake when it is frozen? Any special precautions about working with frozen cake? 4. Should I trim off all the edges after I fill it so that it's perfectly square or is this not necessary? I'm going to frost it and then cover it in marshmellow fondant. Any other suggestions you might have for me I would greatly appreciate! Thank you so much!

  41. Christmasy wedding cake pictures?

    My wedding is at the end of November, and while it's not a full-on Christmas theme, we did pick the date because my fiance and I both LOVE Christmas/winter time. Out colours are silver, gold and dark cranberry (so it's kind of Christmasy) but all the other details are more art-deco inspired versus Christmasy These are our wedding invites: You can see that they are kind art-deco design, and I am made the save-the-dates, and will make favour tags and place cards to match that design. But for our cake we kind of want a simple square fondant cake with holly or mistle-toe climbing up/down the side(s) of it. Something like this: but with holly or mistle-toe. I've looked at almost every picture on, and I can't find anything that is Christmasy. I am going to meet with our potential bakers in the next two weeks, so I want to be really clear (i.e. have a picture) so that I will get actuate quotes/what we have in mind. Has anyone seen Christmasy wedding cakes like I am describing?
