I really enjoyed making this cake. I took inspiration from 3 different wood type cakes that the couple brought in to make this cake. The wood is supposed to resemble a birch tree. I used Fondarific to wrap each tier, leaving a little excess over the top of the cake. The Fondarific worked well because I could blend it together nicely in the back. There was still a visible seam, but it blended together WAY better than regular fondant.
This wedding was held in Dalton GA, the groom's family have been long time customers of mine. I was proud to make it for them and had a great time doing it!!
So now that you've seen the 3 different photos I took, which one is your favorite? Top (grassy background), Middle (bright sunny background), or Bottom (burlap "studio" background)? Let me know in the comments, and pop back here on Friday and I'll feature another awesome cake AND a mini tutorial!!
