So, today is Thursday, which means baking day for our wedding! While the cakes are in the oven, I thought I’d share with you some quick tips that may help you in case you are planning on baking your own wedding cake.
1. If you are planning on making sugar decorations, make them at least two weeks in advance. Originally, I had planned to make my sugar flowers a month before the wedding. But then I got lazy. Finally I made them on Tuesday, but since I had so little time left I couldn’t make them as detailed as I wanted. I had to settle for some simple flowers that I think are really beautiful, but not what I had in mind. So, make them in advance and store them in a dry place.
2. Get your cake boards ready a week in advance. Sometimes you have to cut your boards so they are the exact same size as your cake pan, so this would be a good time to get that out of the way. Also, if you plan on covering your main cake board with fondant do it now. This will give it time for it to dry completely.
