Crafty and artistic soon-to-be brides will probably end up doing a lot of their wedding on their own. However, there’s one big question many will face: can you make your own wedding cake? Certainly you can, but there are a few tips you’ll want to keep in mind if you decide to.
Purchase Wedding Cake Pans
You can get them from your local craft store in round or square shapes. They’re specifically created to make the wide flat shapes that are used to build wedding cakes. You’ll want to purchase at least one for every tier size you want.
Fondant is extremely difficult to work with for a beginner and it’s very hard to get it right the first time. If you want a fondant cake, you should probably go ahead and order it. If you’re experienced with fondant, you can go ahead with it, but a practice run first wouldn’t hurt.
You can create your own buttercream-iced cake that looks professional with a simple trick: messy icing. You can also call it textured icing. No matter what you call it, you can create a very elegant, professional looking cake with textured icing and it’s as easy as running a butter knife repetitively over the cake. As you can see from these Pinterest pictures, messy icing cakes are rather chic.
There you have it – using these tricks you can save a lot of money and create your own wedding cake!
