Our very first wedding cake kids ☺️☺️?? well, of course we did this project with our very good friend Kut. You guys know Kut right? We always brag about her #webragdifferent ??, we work together, she made our matte black birthday cake? You should know her ???? lol.
She was like… “hey guys, do you guys wanna make a wedding cake with me?” And we were like… “yeah ???” lol. Until we realized that it’s an actual wedding cake for an actual wedding for an actual bride and groom, like actual human beings are going to eat this cake ?? ? ? lol. Then it was a different ball game ?? even Kut was a bit nervous closer to the time ?? but we trusted her, she’s a bit incredible with this cooking and baking stuff.
Kut is very organized. She knew exactly which bake shops in Johannesburg to go to and get what supplies and all that stuff. This was a long process and this wedding cake stuff is expensive ??.
Let’s skip to the steps…
- We had to make the cake sponges, the bride requested 4 different flavors with obviously 4 different tiers. It’s a bit of a tricky one because it’s not the typical fruit cake that lasts forever because it has so much sugar and brandy in there ?? lol. We made vanilla, red velvet, lemon and chocolate tiers. It took us the whole day!!! ?? but we did it, then we had to freeze the sponges for a few days.
- Then a few days later we had to make the icing for the cake, tons and tons of icing which we were gonna use in between layers and to dirty ice the cake before we put Fondant on. We didn’t just make any icing, Kut suggested a “Swiss merengue butter icing” because she’s so fancy ??☺️☺️? lol. Yo, just the icing? It took us the ENTIRE DAY!! Lol, we were all so over it ?? Kut is such a perfectionist, lol. Anyways, The next day…
- The cake had thawed over night and we started icing the cake. Each tier had two layers and we had to make sure everything is well iced. That didn’t take up too much of our time, so we entertained ourselves by watching Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars?? on YouTube in between the cake fun. Lol. Then we started rolling out the Fondant, that’s not easy and personally, that’s not really our favorite thing to do ???? but it had to be done. Half of the Fondant had to have a peach color, the bride requested a peach and white cake. Now, that took a while. But we did it and we covered the cakes but the peach Fondant started “almost” cracking and we died a little ??? gosh!! But Mr Google and Mr YouTube came in hand, Did you know you could fix Fondant when it cracks without having to remove it from the cake? Yup ☺️☺️☺️ Google it!! ?
- So the cakes are basically done, it’s assembling time. So before we stack the cake we needed to put Doyle sticks inside the cakes to hold up each tier, otherwise the cake would just crumble because it’s so heavy. Kut painted the flowers ? ?with food coloring and voilà !!!
So if you wanna know how long it takes to make a wedding cake? It takes forever!!!! ?? that’s how long it takes!!! ✌?✌?️
The cake had to travel for a few hours to the location but it worked out guys????.The bride was happy, the cake was exquisite and we deserve a bells!!! ☺️☺️
We learnt a lot, we had a lot of fun.
So #withlovefromthetwins and #sugarcoma are officially a cake making business ☺️☺️ lol, ok… maybe not yet but soon ??.
Not too shabby for our very first wedding cake!!
CRUSHED IT!!! ??❤️❤️
