How to Decorate a Cake Naked

How to Decorate a Cake Naked

Naked Wedding Cake

Naked Wedding Cake

How to decorate a cake naked is really decorating a naked cake, meaning no icing on the outside. I am finding that a lot of brides are wanting a more natural chic, country feel theme for their wedding cakes and this includes a naked cake. I do not want any dry cakes so, I had to figure out a way to keep this naked wedding cake moist and delicious.
After I baked the naked cake I had to slice and torte the naked cake. I then made a simple syrup and washed all of the naked cake layers. I lined each tier with some icing and filled it with filling. I stacked the layered filled naked cake layers then wrapped plastic wrap around the entire naked cake and kept it in the cooler until it was time to deliver.
When we arrived at the reception venue and placed the naked cake on the cake table we removed the plastic and placed powder sugar all over the naked cake. Flowers were placed on the naked cake and there you go. Beautiful. Best wishes to Beck and Kasie Thomas, they were married October 25, 2014 and had their reception at the Howard House in Dunn, NC. Some of the vendors that were part of their wedding were, Ambrosia Cake Creations, Jefferies Florist, Aramark – Campbell University as Caterer, Life By Roxy photographer / videographer, Band of Oz, Saam’s Party Tents, Brackman System Integration, Breezeway Cafe.

Silhouette Wedding Cake

This Silhouette wedding cake was made for Daniel and Emily Burgos who were married October 18, 2014 and had their wedding reception at the Belt Line Station, The Cotton Room in Durham, NC. They wanted their wedding cake to be unique with silhouette images of their story placed on the wedding cake. I created some images and cut black gum paste using my electric cutter. They wanted to include their 4 year old daughter. So, I made a couple of images of a silhouette little girl as well. I also made a little cake special for her. A plum color was an accent color so I made little plum color hearts that were included in the images. Some vendors that were there were All Around Raleigh DJ, Eric Hodgden and, videographer Silver Feather Studios.

Breast Cancer Awareness Cake

Breast Cancer Awareness

We Honor:

the winners

the losers 

and those still fighting the battle.

Written by Jan Stewart.

We all  have a friend or family member that  cancer has affected in one way or another. I feel that having the annual October the month of breast cancer awareness campaign is a good way to encourage us to take steps to plan and detect cancer in the early stages and remind others to do the same as many of us forget to take these steps. 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

This breast cancer awareness three tier cake has textured fondant icing brushed with a light antique pink color on the top and bottom tier giving it an elegant vintage look. The middle tier is just covered with smooth white chocolate fondant in ivory color. The ivory flowers are roses made of gum paste. The topper is an edible butterfly that represents hope for those who are going through breast cancer.

Dedicated to breast cancer survivors that are close to me:

Joyce Holland, Jan Stewart and, Maria Plazas.

A lot of couples would like to have their pets be a part of their wedding. To make this dream come true you can have a figure made of your favorite animal or pet and placed somewhere on your wedding cake.
