Homemade Bridal Shower Cake Design

Homemade Bridal Shower Cake Design

Making this Bridal Shower Cake Design was cool. It required that I learn to make "The Rose"...a very intimidating task for all of us who have never taken a professional course or class. So, I purchased the Wilton Flower nail combo size pack, and practiced. Note: I did this once everyone went to bed for the night and there were no distractions. Wilton Year book from 1972 open to instructions and radio playing soothing music I found success.

It took a few (7) oops roses, but once my hands steadied, and my other hand learned to spin the flower nail, it was smooth sailing from there. I used Wilton recipe for buttercream frosting to form my roses both for practice and the cake. The cake is a homemade. Here is a hint for very dense moist cakes - Buttermilk! Real butter is used for making frosting along with Crisco. The gel coloring also gives the most accurate true to color tints.

This cake was a success only because I took a chance and learned a new skill. I hope you all are encouraged to take up a challenge, it will give you the same sense of accomplishment! This cake is made of three layers; 8" heart shape, 12" heart shape, and 16" heart shape. Frosting this cake was made easier with a rotating cake plate. I frosted each cake with a fresh batch of frosting starting with the largest. The leftover frosting of the 8" is what I used to pipe the border shells. This cake looked good before adding the flowers, and will keep it in mind for the future. The leaves were challenging to me but in the end I was happy with the responses received!

This was a very heavy cake and required a heavy board. Cake designing is fun!

This cake looks amazing, it takes a lot of talent for some body who isn't a professional baker to make something this beautiful! I would purchase this cake for my wedding if I had saw it in a book for wedding cakes!

I am so pleased with the results of asking Alberta to make my sisters Bridal shower cake. I wanted her shower to be a very special day and the beautiful cake was the perfect final touch. I definitely know who to ask for my next cake. +-)
