In the previous two posts, I have discussed with you how to bake and frost a wedding cake in Part One, and in Part Two, I showed you how to stack a three tiered wedding cake. In this post tutorial, I will show you how to decorate a wedding cake using ribbon and artificial flowers.
Creating a wedding cake that is specially matched to coordinate a bride’s special day is super easy with all of the options that are readily available now-a-days. Did that sound like old school country? Changing up icing colours is one way, but an easier way to do so is to coordinate ribbon and flower colours.
To decorate a wedding cake you can use a variety of different types of flowers:
Sugar flowers: Pros- Edible, Cons- very fragile, time consuming to make, one time use
Real Flowers: Pros- Beautiful, can match the bouquets exactly, Cons-smell, require flower spikes, droop quickly, one time use
Artificial/Silk: Pros- easy to work with and trim to exact sizing etc, long lasting, reusable, Cons: may be hard to find matching colours/type etc.
