Wedgewood Cake


This Wedgewood wedding cake was a first for me. I think I'm now ready to talk about this cake. The bride is very educated in the exact style and there was a lot of pressure to get it just right. Finding molds was a challenge in itself! I worked myself to death, about 19 hours of decorating only to walk away being aggravated. The bride wanted the top three ovals to be separated by the two candlesticks in the picture next to the cake. I tried, boy did I, but it was unstable and rocky. It was a decision that I thought, "better on the table than on the floor". I hope she wasn't broken hearted. It was still a very pretty cake, but there were so many obstacles that I was very glad to be done with it. That color was not easy to make! Chad mixed the entire 30lb tub of fondant over two evenings and his arms were sore for days. I'm sure I'll like the cake better after I get over all of the headaches. argh! We delivered it to the Fairyland Club on Lookout Mountain.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I know what you mean, I have had many a cake that I have walked away unhappy with. I think alot of clients have unrealistic ideas about what can be done with wedding cakes ((them candlesticks are WAY too small to hold that cake)) but I think you did an amazing job! Kudos on the fondant too Chad, the color is flawless =D

  6. It was A LOT of blue! Sometimes when I leave a cake, I'm a little sad because I know they are about to cut and stab it. Other times, the cake deserves it!
