Marie & Ernie's 9 Tier Wedding Cake!


About a month ago we made an elegant 9 tier wedding cake for Marie Zhuge & Ernie Suek's wedding extravaganza. They had 1,600 guests attending and really wanted the cake to match their fantasy wedding event.
We had an amazing time doing this cake as it involved everything that we LUV to do. We LUV wedding cakes, Peonies, Scroll work and most of all ROMANCE. 
We are all hopeless romantics here in Deelite:) And if you're not, we hope this video of the cake will soften your heart like buttercream:)

Julie Bashore Day 2 & 3

Day 2 & 3 of Julie Bashore's class was action packed with glitter, stenciling, embossing, isomalt and tiered cakes. 
Here Julie is demonstrating her fabulous technique of applying glitter embossing texture on fondant. 

 Then all the students made isomalt and isomalt baby figurines.
Also learning how to airbrush
 On the third and final day, all the students designed their very own cake and executed the design onto their final tiered cake. 

So much time and effort were put into their final cakes, I was so impressed by all their individual style and designs. 
Congrats to everyone! Thank you Julie for allowing us to learn from you:)

Julie Bashore Day 1 at Deelite!

We have been so excited to have Julie Bashore here. Today is the first day of her 3 day Course and it has been a day filled with a wealth of great cake decorating techniques.
Students learned how to cover their cakes with Fondant using a special mat technique which enables students to cover thier cakes quickly with flawless results and thin fondant finish.
I loved this technique and found it so helpful as it cuts your covering time by half, lessens sweetness of the cake as you use less fondant. How brilliant is that!!!!
All the students covered their cakes perfectly smooth in less than 5 minutes. UHMAZING!!!!
Another fabulous technique taught was embossing on fondant with personalized texture. Further expanding creative options for students to decorate with one of a kind designs that can make their cakes stand out and achieve a one of a kind look.
And also learning how to use the fondant crimpers to make one of a kind designs.

More to come :) I can't wait to see all the students final cakes!
