So, this was not only the first cake from the grand opening special, it was my first wedding cake! I was pretty nervous since I was using 2 techniques that were brand new to me. Not only had I never swirled 2 different fondant colours together before, but I had never placed the fondant on the cake like this. I have to say that everything went off fairly smoothly on the decorating front, however baking was completely different. This cake is a 6. 8 and 10″ round cake that will feed 80 people (or so). The top and the bottom baked beautifully, moist and perfect. However, when I sliced into the middle tier of the cake, it was raw! My regular chocolate cake is pretty tempermental and apparently decided to undercook itself. So, here I am the afternoon before the wedding with 2 tiers ready to be decorated and one that had to be re-baked. I usually use 3″ pans, however I decided that it would be best to purchase a new set of 3-1 inch pans for this task. Not only would it bake in a 1/4 of the time, but I would be assured of an even bake. In the end, the middle tier turned out beautifully (phew!) and I was able to complete the cake with little time to spare. I was so happy that everything turned out so well in the end. The bride and her family were at the hall when I arrived with the cake and were very pleased with the final result. I am super-grateful to them for giving me an opportunity and for having the confidence in a “newbie”!
