Elegant Wedding Cake

Few weeks ago my best friend, Antonis, gave me a call asking for a simple wedding cake.  I was more than glad to proceed with this task and I started talking with the bride to be, Anna, about what she wanted.  The only restriction that I had is that they wanted a chocolate cake that would not be too sweet.  The rest would have been my decision.
I thought of an off white two tier cake with modern designs. I even thought of using black for the designs. Then I thought of a more elegant version with flowers, but I did not know what flowers to choose.  Finally, I decided that lilies would be a beautiful idea.
Flowers were the first to be made, and then the covering fondant.  I made a mistake with the color I used, and instead of an off white I ended up having a peach fondant.  I was very frustrated at first and I was about to make a new one, but then, I thought that it would look pretty if I used it as the bottom cake, and voila… The cake looked very elegant!!!

The happy couple after the wedding!

I was so pleased to see that my first effort in making lilies was successful that I forgot to capture the making procedure. I promise that I will give you a tutorial on how to make them in a future post.

  6. Oh my goodness, Eftychia, you've outdone yourself! That is a gorgeous, gorgeous cake. Waah, I want to get married again and have such a beautiful cake! Actually, talking about that I married Ian 3 times. Yep, thanks to moving countries - no one believed we were married - old certificates were no longer valid apparently. Haha!

    That bride - she has such a lovely figure - guess she doesn't eat cake every single day. :)

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
