Commission: Heart of Roses Wedding Cake by cakecrumbs Commission: Heart of Roses Wedding Cake by cakecrumbs
This is a commission for a small[ish] wedding cake. The couple requested a strawberry cake with embossed fondant and a heart made from red roses. I cut the cake into four layers, layered and crumb coated them with chocolate buttercream before covering with fondant.

This is the first large cake I've covered with embossed fondant. It's quite difficult to cover a cake with embossed fondant and not ruin the pattern, so I was quite nervous about the request. It worked out fine it the end. PHEW.

Many more photos and chatters about the cake over at the blog: [link]

I love this SO MUCH! Simple, but elegant! I want a cake just like this for my wedding! Although I guess I should work on getting a boyfriend first before I start planning the wedding though lol. Still, a girl can dream!!!

I'm glad you think they are perfect. :giggle: They're what I would consider to be a rushed version.

DUDE I wanna try to do the same thing now except i never did buy an impression mat :( crap lol.
but i wanna make some buttercream roses cause its been a while so maybe ill try that BUT Halloween is coming up too hmmm Maybe I could do edible spiders in a heart shape??? hahah idk what do you think??
But I LOVE your work you roses look realistic even without the leaves :) Did you have to put any doles in the cake to hold layers together or were you good?
I bet they LOVED IT and ate all of it. :) :love: :smile: :angel:

Thank you. :] I think spiders could be lots of fun!

I didn't use dowel as it wasn't a very big cake. They were having an intimate reception so it's just the one tier.

If I were going to make them I'd probably use fondant. But I'd suggest that you use whatever medium you're most comfortable with.

Oh wow! This is so beautiful! I bet it tasted really good too :>

But If I saw that cake in real life, I'd be too afraid of eating it out of fear that I might ruin its lovely design. :noes:
