Scroll Wedding Cake

The Saturday after the gingerbread festival I delivered this wedding cake for the daughter of the sister-in-law of the older sister of a girl I grew up with (did you follow that?) You gotta love Facebook for getting back in touch with people from your past.

Her wedding colors were brown, navy blue, and ivory, so I covered the cakes in ivory fondant, wrapped a navy blue ribbon around the base of each tier, and piped the scroll work with brown royal icing. The thing on the top is a mirror that she put her cake topper on. I even made the wood cake stand (with the help of my awesome brother-in-law); if you look close you can see a glass plate under the bottom tier to protect the cake from the polyurethane.

I've got another wedding cake due in December (this bride's sister, actually), and then a few months off before my next one. Phew! :)


  1. I LOVE the scroll work! Gorgeous cake!

  2. Wow, that is stunning. I'm so impressed!

  3. That is just beautiful!!! I know the bride was THRILLED!

  4. Thanks everyone, the bride did love it :) I've been asked to make a wedding cake for her sister in the spring :)

  5. Tiffiny, would love to do lunch or coffee and bounce some ideas around with you! But you are all the way in Utah,and I'm in Ohio. Just stumbled upon your blog, and am curious about the fondant work on this cake. Would love for you to shoot me an email. kristibrooke[at]gmail[dot]com.

  6. That looks gorgeous! How did you make the cake stand? If you could tell me briefly what tools/methods you used at, I'd really appreciate it!
