Bridal Cake

Ingredients & Tools:

  • 2 boxed cake mixes (I used strawberry)
  • White chocolate cream cheese filling (see recipe below)
  • Marshmallow fondant (I made from scratch, see recipe below)
  • Pink food coloring
  • Black icing (bought Wilton's)
  • 10" x 2" square cake pan
  • Wax paper (for lining cake pan while baking it)
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Decorating tip#3
  • Paper towel (rolled up to help your bow loops set to desired size)
  • 12" square cake board
  • Ribbon (I chose black ribbon with "Tie the Knot" written in white)

Butter Cream Frosting Recipe:

  • 1 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 lb. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. meringue powder
  • Pinch of salt (optional - this helps remove strong sweetness of icing)

Cream shortening, flavor, and water. Add dry ingredients. Mix on low speed until all ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together. Blend additional minute or so, until creamy.

White Chocolate Cream Cheese Filling Recipe:

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 lb. powdered sugar
  • 1 lb. cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
  • 3 sticks butter

Microwave the white chocolate chips for only about 20-25 seconds, enough so they melt while you stir them. Put all ingredients into mixing bowl for your electric mixer.

Using the paddle attachment, start beating on low speed until all ingredients are incorporated. Increase speed to medium, and beat for a few minutes until smooth and dry.

Marshmallow Fondant Recipe::

  • 15 oz mini marshmallows
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
  • 2 lb. powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 cup Crisco

Grease microwave-proof bowl with Crisco. Also grease wooden or heat-proof spoon. Pour marshmallows and water into bowl.

Microwave for approximately 2 minutes, stopping and stirring at 40 second intervals. Mixture should be soupy. Take out of microwave and immediately add corn syrup, lemon juice, salt and extracts. Stir well.

Sift confectioner's sugar into mixture, one cup at a time. After approximately 5 cups, grease your hands well with Crisco and knead the mixture in the bowl. Add the 6th cup and continue to knead.

Now grease your work surface well, and turn mixture out of bowl onto counter. Sift remaining sugar, re-grease hands, and knead well.

If mixture seems soft, add one additional cup of powdered sugar. Shape into a mound and put a coating of Crisco on outside. Double wrap in cling wrap and insert into Ziploc bag. Press air out of bag and seal.

You can allow the mixture to rest overnight, or use it after sitting for a few hours. (Hint: I didn't use all of the powdered sugar. I was able to use it quicker than 3 hours like recipe states.)

Base Cake Instructions:

Prepare 2 boxed cake mixes. Spray a 10 inch square cake with nonstick cooking spray. Then line the pan with wax paper the same size as the pan. (I just traced the pan onto wax paper, and cut it out.) Bake per box instructions for 2-9 inch cakes.

I used craft glue to adhere ribbon around base of the cake board. Let this dry before putting cake onto board.

Let the cake cool before flipping over to the cake board. (I have an extra cake board to use at home.) I flipped cake over on top of additional cake board.

Cut the top to make it straight across. Then I flipped it onto the 14 inch cake board. So now the bottom of the cake is on the bottom of the cake board.

I used white chocolate cream cheese filling in between 2 layers. I stacked both bridal shower cakes on top of each other.

I tinted the fondant a light pink, then rolled it out. Then I used a Wilton Impression Mat and a rolling pin, and pressed the scroll design onto the fondant. (Hint: It works better if you use luster dust and brush it onto the impression mat. This helps with fondant sticking to the mat.)

Then I carefully lifted the fondant onto the cake. I used Wilton ready-made black icing to trace the scroll design onto the cake, top and sides. (Hint: By using the ready-made icing you can just apply a Wilton tip, and not have to worry about bags, or much clean-up.)

Then I made a pink bow out of fondant I had tinted. (Hint: I used a piece of paper towel, and rolled it into the size I wanted my loops to be. Then I let the fondant set-up.)

There you have it - a finished wedding shower cake!

Bridal Shower Cake

I used Wilton 3D Teddy Bear cake pan and 2 Betty Crocker cake mixes.

I added a package of vanilla Jello pudding and an extra egg to the the cake mixes. Once the cake was baked, I cut off the bears' ears. I then used these pieces to create a bun at the back of the head which I secured with toothpicks.

I used silver dragees for an engagement ring, earrings and necklace. I also found a piece of wire and bought a remnant of lace from a fabric store, and created a veil to attach at the back of the head.
