Daisy Wedding Cakes
Looking for daisy wedding cakes? This is a 3 tier yellow cake with daisies all over.
Before starting the cake make all of your daisies. They are made of gum paste, and dried on a curved surface, then a yellow icing dot is piped onto the center of the daisy. I made close to 200 for this cake.
Bake 2 round layers of each size-12"-10"-8"-. Each 2 layer size cake can be a different flavor and have a filling if the bridal couple desires it. Bake all of your cakes. Make a yellow icing.
Put your layer sizes together accordingly, putting them on a round cardboard cake circle the size of that cake.
Next ice the cakes with a thin coat of yellow 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 another 2 hours. Cupping the palm of your hand curve the top edge of each cake till slightly rounded. Because the base for this cake is a pedestal cake stand the entire cake will be assembled at the site.
I will be assembling this stacked cake using hidden pillars and plastic cake 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 will be placing on the 12", and center it on top of the 12" cake.
The feet on the bottom 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 all the way 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 hidden pillars over the x's. Now place all the cakes on the cake separator plates (the 10"cake on the 10" separator plate, etc.) The 12" cake will go on the pedestal base at the site and not on a separator plate.
Gather everything you will need to assemble the daisy wedding cake and pack in a bag, extra yellow icing, cake spatula to smooth any mishaps, etc. Don't forget wipes and paper towels. Remember you have to be prepared for anything that may happen during transport.
Place all the cakes on foam in vehicle to transport. I just bought a foam mattress pad and cut it up to fit my vehicle. The foam keeps the cakes from moving.
Place the cake base on the cake table. Put the 12" cake on the pedestal base. Take the next size cake-10" and place on the 12" 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. Now take yellow icing filled bag with round tip #10 and make a tube around the bottom of each layer.
Your final step will be to place all the daisies on the cake. This is done by putting a dot of icing on the back of each daisy with your icing bag and round tip. Now you are finished with your daisy wedding cake!
