Today in Advanced Baking, I arrived early at 7:30 (I keep coming to class early it’s like it really does start at 7:30) to start stacking and decorating my cake.
Thursday in my dorm room I worked on fondant decorations. I made some “tissue paper” for my top layer box, some “jewelry”, and some diamond cut outs.
First things first to get my cakes out of the freezer and to set some butter out to begin coming to room temperature to make the buttercream frosting.
Allie and I made a big batch of buttercream frosting for us to share.
Once we had our buttercream made we started trimming, frosting, and stacking our cakes. I trimmed off the dome of the cake to make it level.
Next I put some buttercream frosting down then spread it out.
Next I put the top layer on, followed by more buttercream on top to smooth down the sides and around the cake.
Once it was all smoothed out I set aside the bottom and top layer to decorate further later.
For the middle layer, I rolled out some white fondant to cover it.
This is where I stopped working, because class was over and I needed to drive home to make my niece’s first birthday cake!!
Next Friday, the 28th, our wedding cakes are due!!!
