Instructions for cake designs for wedding:  This is a 3 tier wedding cake with brown ribbon that has cream colored pearls glued to each side.

Bake 2 round layers of each size-14"-10"-6". Each 2 layer size can be a different flavor and have a filling if the bridal couple desires it. Bake all of your cakes.

Make a ivory buttercream icing. Put your layer sizes together accordingly, putting them on a round cardboard cake circle the size of that cake. At this time place the 14"cake on the cake base.

On this cake I made the base out of 3---16"circles of foam core board taped together and covered in gold foil. Next ice the three cakes with a thin coat of icing to catch and hold the crumbs. This is referred to as the crumb coat. Let this set for 2 hours. Now ice each layer making sure it is nice and smooth. Let it set about an hour.

When ribbon trim is desired on a cake there are a few things you have to do before you put the ribbon on. I always put a piece of clear acrylic, cut as wide as the ribbon and the length of the ribbon that goes around the cake with a few inches extra, and put that on first. The reason you do this first is if you don't the icing will bleed through the ribbon.

Next put the ribbon over the acrylic. I use a two sided tape to connect the ribbon,slightly overlapping it. On a stacked cake the only layer you can put the ribbon on is the base cake. The rest of the cake is assembled at the site.

Loosely measure the ribbon and acrylic for each of the remaining layers. At this time I glued the cream pearls to both sides of the ribbon. I assembled this stacked cake using hidden pillars and plastic separator plates. Place the separator plate the size of the cake you will be placing on top of the cake below, such as the 10" you are placing on the 14", and center it on top of the 14". The feet of the plate will make 4 x's on the cake top. It is over these x's you will center your hidden pillars and push in to the bottom of each layer.

Cut your first hidden pillar level with the cake top. The other 3 pillars must be the same size as the first one. Place all the pillars over the x's. Now place the cakes on the cake separator plates( the 10"cake on the 10" separator plate, etc.) Gather everything you will need to assemble the cake and pack in a bag, extra icing, cake spatula to smooth any mishaps, etc. Don't forget wipes and paper towels. Remember you have to be prepared for anything that might happen during transport.

Place all the cakes on foam in vehicle to transport. I just bought a foam mattress pad and cut it to fit my vehicle. The foam keeps the cakes from moving.

Place cake base on the cake table. Take the next size cake-10"- and place on the 14" cake. The feet on the bottom of the cake separator plate will fit into the hidden pillars below. Repeat process till all cakes are stacked. View more cake designs for wedding at our wedding cake designs page.

Place acrylic and ribbon around bottom of each cake. 

Fresh flowers were added to this cake by the florist.
