Hey there! How’s the beginning of fall treating you? Us, we’re suuuuper busy! The beginning of fall brings us tolerable temperatures, and everyone’s rushing to get their weddings in before it gets too cold, so we’ve been working our buns off!
So anyway, to the important stuff… This week, we’ve got a special treat:
Though, we slightly misled you by the title; we’re not showing you a full step-by-step of all three cakes. However, we are going to show you some tricks Kyong used to create these beauties.
These are the sketches Kyong designed for the clients.
Since these cakes awere all styrofoam dummy cakes, this allowed Kyong to work on them at her leisure, as opposed to worrying about buttercream melting. After covering the dummies with fondant, here are some fun things she did!
For the middle cake, the edges were crimped. We use clamp-like crimping tools, and there are a variety of shapes one can choose. Kyong went with the scalloped look. Later, she wet the edges and attached gold leaf only to the crimped parts.
She used a combination of these techniques on these cakes, and we can’t get enough of them! Hope they help inspire you for your future cake endeavors!
