Fall-Themed Wedding Shower Cake

Wedding Shower Cake

Do you all remember the Super Mario Brothers birthday cake that I made for a 30th birthday earlier this year? Well, the girl that I made that cake for is a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding and since she was helping to plan the wedding shower, she asked me to make the cake. I was very much looking forward to it since I have yet to do a fall-themed cake (my favorite season!), and they wanted the cake to incorporate a number of different elements, which I was excited to put together. The cake was made of 10″ and 6″ tiers of white cake with a chocolate-hazelnut ganache filling and vanilla buttercream. All of the decorative details were done in fondant.

The cake was to include the following:

– The wedding color scheme (wine and tangerine);
– Daisies (which the bridesmaids will carry);
– A spray of roses (which the bride will carry);
– The tree and leaves design from the Save the Date cards;
– The personalized stamp they had designed {the design from the stamp is on the front of the bottom tier};
– A border that looked like a ruler (the bride is a teacher);
– A man on one knee holding an apple (ties to a story about the bride and groom’s first date).

The bride loved the cake… Mission accomplished!
