Boardwalk Beach Wedding Cake
Wedding Cake Project Brief
Living near the beach, it is very often that we are asked to come up with a beach themed wedding cake. After the popularity of our previous beach hut cake, our couple wanted to incorporate some of the elements, however they wanted extend the tiers in the cake for a more modern look. We also incorporated more of a blue hue as this matched in with the colour scheme of the wedding and also moved away from the traditional white cake. As the couple didn't want a topper for their cake, we came up with the idea of placing a starfish at the top to give it a central focal point and added shells around the cake to tie in the theme.
How We Made The Wedding Cake
All the decorations on this cake are made by our expert decorators and for the majority of the work we have not used any pre-made items or moulds. Therefore this cake took many hours to create, and was precisely put together to ensure that it had straight, perfect lines. We rolled out thin paste and let it set, so that we could measure and cut out each plank for the bottom tier. We embossed the paste with a wooden effect and piped the rope lines to give a simulated boardwalk effect. The rope tier was made by rolling out rows of paste and twisting them together to create the design which is also fully edible. We gave the rope tier a more natural and less uniform look by changing some of the directions of the rope and added an anchor to give it some additional detail. Sand was added around some of the tiers which was made using brown sugar and crushed biscuits. Finally we added the star fish to the top right of the cake and added a few shells around the tiers to pull it all together.
