Wedding Cake Designs Ideas

This wedding cake designs idea is a 2 tier cake with separators and red roses.  To make this wedding cake, bake 2 layers of each size cake-10" and 8". Each 2 layer size cake can be a different flavor and have a filling if the bridal couple desires it. 

After you bake all of your cakes, make a white buttercream icing.

Put your layer sizes together accordingly, putting them on a round cardboard cake circle the size of that cake.

At this time I placed the 10" cake on the store bought cake base. Next ice the cakes with a thin coat of white 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 cake making sure it is nice and smooth. Let it set another 2 hours.This is most important because to do the texture method there has to be a slight crust on the icing. Cupping the palm of your hand curve the top edge of each cake till slightly rounded.

Using a styles or a T pin, draw random sizes of scallops along the top edge of the sides of the each cake, some short, some longer, some wider or smaller.

With an icing filled bag and round tip #5 do lacework on the top of each layer and scallops on the sides.

Next texture the sides of the cakes below the scallops. To do this I use a small sterilized sea sponge, (just boil a new one.) Wet the sponge, squeeze out the water and dab the sides to create a texture look.

Now change from tip #5, on your icing bag , to the star tip #16 and do the shell trim along the edge of all the scallops.

I assembled this cake using separator plates and 3" pillars.

Place the separator plate the size of the cake you will be placing on top of the cake below, such as the 8" you will be placing on the 10", and center it on the top of the 10" cake. The feet on the bottom of the separator will make 4 x's on the cake top. It is over the x's you will center your dowel rods, and push into the bottom of the 10" layer. You can use plastic dowel rods or wooden ones.

Cut your first dowel rod level with the top of the cake. The other 3 dowel rods must be the same size as the first one.

Now flip over your separator plate so that the feet are sticking up and place it on the center top of the 10" cake.

Use your icing bag and round tip #5 and do the lace work on top of the separator plate.

Now place 3 " pillars over the feet of the plate. Make a red icing and now make 5 red roses, placing one in front of each pillar and one in the center. Make a red rose bud by each rose with 4 rose buds around the center rose. Using leaf tip # 356 and green icing make leaves around the roses.

Take your 8" layer cake and place it on a 8" plastic separator plate. When using pillars and separator plates to make a space between layers both plates must be the same size.

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 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. Put the 10" cake and base on the cake table.

Now place the 8" layer on top of the pillars with the feet fitting inside the top of the pillars.

Place the topper in the center of the 8" cake top.  Make your red roses and buds to go around the topper. Make leaves around the roses.

Use the white icing filled bag and tip#18 make a shell border around the base of each cake. For more wedding cake designs ideas, view our wedding cake gallery or if you prefer wedding cake designs ideas with instructions, then view our wedding cake desgins page.
