About a month ago, I received a call from my good friend and wedding planner, Tammy of TLS Wedding Designs, about doing a wedding cake for a June wedding she was planning. Not a problem... and a consultation was set up. Fast forward 2 days in which Tammy calls me and says the wedding was moved up by 5 months to the end of February. She now had 2 weeks to plan a wedding. Could I do the cake??? Fortunately, I had a light schedule that week so I was able to fit her in.
Over three-way conference calls, we managed to have a consultation over the phone and came up with a design that the bride was happy with. It was a small wedding, however she wanted a 3 tier red velvet cake utilizing different shapes. We went with 2 square cakes (one on the bottom and one on the top) with a round cake in the middle. Each square tier was quilted and turned so the point was facing to the front. The middle round tier was decorated with an edible sugarpaste ribbon in the shade of pewter silver with a monogram. To stay within budget we added silk red roses on top and few at the bottom to balance the design and complete the overall look.
