20+ Wedding Cake Ideas DIY (Part One)

99WeddingIdeas.comWedding Cake Ideas. Are you looking for How to make cake for your awesome wedding cake? Here some cool stuff for you! 20+ Wedding Cake Ideas DIY (Part 1)

I have done 10 wedding cakes. Every time I am so nervous.
If there is one cake you want perfect in your life its your wedding cake.
I am not a perfect cake decorator. I am still learning. Wedding cakes always test me.
After I have worried and fretted, and stayed up all night making the cake, I drop off the cake……….and fall in love with the setting.
I love weddings.
The place settings, pictures of the couple so in love……..ah, the romance of the occasion sweeps me away.
As I drop off the cake, I do the finishing touches on the cake and walk out hand in hand with my hubby feeling good about my work. The stress is gone.
Here are the 2 most recent cakes I’ve done:

I know many of you have had questions about wedding cakes and/or are preparing to make one in the near future. Instead of answering individually, I thought I’d post some of the tips and tricks that work for me. Remember, I am not a pro at this………but I hope some of these ideas can help you.
Here is what I will cover in this wedding post:
-Freezing all that cake
-Cake boards
-Steaming?
-Piping
-Transportation
-Arranging flowers
Freezing all that cake.
(2-5 days before delivery)

I ran into a problem with freezing cake some months back. If I tried to freezer all of my cake at one time, the top layers would start to squish the bottom layer. So now i freeze in stages. The first layer goes in…4 hours later the middle layer……4 hours later the top layer.
You can wait more time but waiting at least 4 hours works for me.

For wedding cakes, I use real wood for my cake board. For party cakes, I use cardboard cake boards.
But wedding cakes are heavy! Just ask my husband! ha ha
Most of the time I use ply wood for my bases but I found this board at a thrift store and had it cut to the right size at a hardware store.
What is the right size? I make my boards 4-6 inches bigger than the biggest layer of cake.
The board not only adds stability but it makes a statement around the bottom.
You will need to adjust this (make it smaller) if you’re using a cake stand.
Then I cover my board with 2 layers of Fancy Foil, just in case we have a rip.
Steaming?
(Day and night before delivery)
Have you ever seen Buddy on Cake Boss steam a cake?
After I saw him do that I did some reasurch about it and decided to give it a try.
After I stack, ice, cover and stack the tiers, I steam all my fondant cakes.
It gives the fondant a nice sheen and can take out any unevenness your fondant might have.
I have a shark streamer. It’s intended for cleaning so it powerful. A garment steamer would be more gentle.
I lightly steam the cake BEFORE I do any piping. I don’t want to get my buttercream wet.
Let the cake dry before you start piping.
Piping
(Day and night before delivery)

Piping takes practice. I do not consider myself I good piper. Don’t ask me to do lettering…I can’t!
My tip for piping: place small amounts of buttercream in your piping bag.
This will give you more control.
The other thing? Practice.
And I pray a lot when I am doing it. Ha Ha
If you have mistakes, take a moist paper towel and wipe it off.

After the piping is done, I stop for the night. Or early morning.
Delivery
(Morning of event)
I sit in the back of our jeep, next to the wedding cake, for delivery. Most of them, I know, are not going to move…….but I am too scared something will happen.
I place the cake on a piece of no slip foam in the car. (The stuff you can line drawers with or put under rugs.) I do this with all my cakes to make sure they don’t slide around.
Before I put the cake in the car, I take a very long dowel and sharpen it. Then I insert it all the way down through the center of the cake. All the way to the base.
