I made this wedding cake for my friends. The top layer is vanilla and chocolate swirled cake fill with Chocolate to Die for icing and covered in vanilla buttercream.. The second layer is vanilla cake filled and covered with vanilla buttercream. The bottom layers is Chocolate to Die for Cake and filled with Chocolate to Die for Frosting and covered in vanilla frosting.
The dark chocolate colors of the bottom layer kept seeping through the white buttercream. I scraped off the buttercream covering the bottom layer. I cut white icing sheets to fit the 4 sides of the cake and adhere to the cake with a little white frosting. I covered the cake and icing sheets with white buttercream.
I wrapped the camouflage ribbon around all sides of the cake and secured any lose edges with a dab of icing.
Using a vanilla buttercream filled pastry bag with a single small round hole decorating tip, I piped swirls on the cake. Replacing the decorating tip with a closed star tip, scrolls were piped at the base of the cake. Pink icing was piped along the top ribbon edge using the closed star decorating tip.
At the wedding the cake was placed on top if a real slab of wood. Plastic straws were cut and inserted near a corner of the 2nd layer to secure the placement of the bride and groom figurine. The initial ornament was positioned on the top layer.
