It’s really very easy, provided you follow a few basic steps for wedding cake ideas.
What size cake? If you arrange the 2 cakes, cake 3 or even 8 cakes, the difference between the size of the cake should be 2 “or 3” but no less than 2 “. So for a 2 layer cake, cake size you may 7 “to the top and 9” to the bottom, or 6 “for the top and 9” to the bottom. A wedding cake is usually made up of three cake 10 “, 8” and 6 “
The Depth Of The Cakes
To arrange the cake you need to bake all cakes to the same depth, you can cut them to size. Typically a fruit cake cut to 3 “deep and a sponge for approximately 2 ½” deep before filling with jam and Buttercream.
Important *** Wedding Cake Ideas
Input your cake on a cake of thin card the same size each cake BEFORE covering with marzipan or icing. Check the level of your cake-using small plastic spirit level-(get them at your local DIY store) Once you have ice all cakes separately, great ice thick boards (13 mm Drum Board) for bottom cake, for example if the cake bottom was on 10 “thin card, you will need to ice 13” drum Board, stacked cake for all to sit in.
Trading Tip-If you’re making a wedding cake, which will be shown on a large screen silver or gold base stand, they are usually 14 “on, (unless they are standing antique), on the cake-links we are always on the ice 2” thick boards, so it fits on the screen of the base stand. For weddings, the hotel phone and ask them what the size of the top of the cake stand them.
Before Stacking the cake one above the other-you need to add support.
Use the doweling plastic to do this. Measure 1.5 “on the size of the cake above and mark the inside of the circle. I.e. If you have 10 “base cake and the cake will be the next 8”, you need to mark 10 “cake on top of the 3.5” from the 10 “cake. Encourage Dowell into cake on your line just had scored. Mark the level of the dowel with the top of the cake, make sure that you push the dowel into the cake straight and thin card has reached under the cookie-delete and cut according to size with more junior hacksaw, or sharp kitchen knife. Push the dowel back to cut a cake make sure that the dowells straight.. Repeat this until you have 4 (or more if you like) pen in a circle. Finish with one final Dowell in the middle of the cake.
This is a good idea to mix a bit of Royal icing, place very thin amount on top of the cake bottom, covering the pen. Royal Icing will dry and helps to prevent the cake slips on the way.
People have different opinions as to when the stack cakes – i.e. well before icing you have set or after the icing has set. As a rule, good stack while fresh icing or leave at least 2 days before trying to pile up or you will crack the icing. We much prefer to accumulate while fresh icing, then if you mark the cake, it can still be smoothed back perfectly.
The next cake on top of the stack, and then if you need to add a third level, repeat the dowelling, add some royal icing, and pile the next cake on top.
Finishing the cake.
This is a good idea to put 12 or 15 mm Ribbon at the bottom of each cake, even if only the same color ribbon with the icing-it will hide the join between the cake and cover every edge of the rough that might otherwise not easily covered with a simple pipe. Just put a Ribbon on the cake after they stacked!
Transporting cakes stacked.
This is a good idea to invest in heavy duty boxes stack, this box has inset at the bottom — both round and square cake that will hold in position. Oh and one more thing – drive carefully!
frequently asked questions
Can I stack a sponge cake
Yes-we often make 3 layers of sponge cake stacked wedding-make sure you have a lot of pen support
Can I have mixed levels of fruit cake and sponge cake?
Yes-but remember that you can only have a fruit cake in the bottom of the cake with a layer of sponge!
It would be better to drill holes through the Board and put one dowel all the way through?
No-not at all, this will not work, the cake will still be sunk!
Do I need a Fruit Cake Dowell
Absolutely Yes – think about it, if the 8 “cake fruit weighs 1600g and has 800 g 800 g icing and marzipan on it – which makes 3.2 kg-if you stack the other cake on top of it will sink, even if the cake is a fruit undeneath – it will sink!!!!
