Silver Sequins Square Wedding Cake

Silver Sequins Square Wedding Cake

Today I want to share this Silver Sequins Square Wedding Cake with you!  I made this a couple of weekends ago and I just couldn’t wait to share!

I absolutely adore square wedding cakes - and since they’re pretty rare, I get SO excited when I’m asked to do one!  Plus, this cake just radiated elegance and simplicity and well, the design was just really, really pretty and I loved doing it!

Can I say that about a cake that I made?  I hope so.  I just did!  Anyway -this cake was small (for a wedding cake) and that just made it that more more appealing to me… it was only 4″, 6″ and 8″ square tiers.   I baked them in my set of Fat Daddio Square pans (that’s a flashback in history) and gosh, I still love those pans!

In addition to it’s size and the fact that it was square, I was SO excited that the bride requested a glittery silver middle tier.

After talking over several options, we decided to do this sequined effect.  I took pictures to share the steps with you for how to make it (eventually), but your best option would be to snag the Cakes in Full Bloom Craftsy Class where I learned the technique!

I will give you a few hints though… I glued edible confetti onto the cake with piping gel, then used Wilton Color Mist to make it all silver!  There are a few more details than that… but those are the main components!

It’s 50% off through Monday (9/22/14) and I’m convinced this class is worth every penny!  In fact, as I mentioned earlier, every Craftsy Class is on sale right now – up to 50% off so there might be others you’ll want to grab too!

One last thing… the 6″ tier on this cake was a dummy cake.  The bride was having a very small intimate wedding so she didn’t need lots of cake, but she still wanted it to be a 3-tiered wedding cake, so this was the best option.

If you’re wondering…  don’t let the dummy tier deter you from using the sequined effect – it also works beautifully on real cake…. as I did it on this Pool Party Cake (except they were pink sequins!).

Anyway – so that’s that!  The top and bottom tiers were vanilla cake filled with white chocolate buttercream frosting.    The fondant was homemade marshmallow fondant.  I used my usual method of stacking cakes – except I didn’t use any bubble tea straws in the dummy tier.  That was kind of nice – being able to skip that!
