Cool Homemade Bridal Shower Cake
I made this Bridal Shower Cake for my sister’s bridal shower. Got the idea for making bridal shower cakes from a Wilton 2004 Idea book. I changed the cake somewhat, but used the same basic idea and cake topper.
I do not like fondant icing, but I love the look, so I used butter cream and smoothed with a non patterned paper towel several times as the icing is crusting to achieve the same look. I used butter flavored Crisco in my normal butter cream recipe to get an ice antique white color for the trim. Then tinted the rest for the lovely ivory color.
The bottom tier of the bridal shower cake is double layer 10″. Top tier is double layer 6″. Top tier is offset, and supported by plate and plastic rods inserted in base cake. Embellished with star tip. Pearls were piped on using tip #12. Sprinkled white cake sparkles on finished cake and cake plate for glistening look.
