I have been making real and fake wedding cakes from my home for the last four+ years. I work at Winnipeg Transit as a city bus driver. Making real wedding cakes is very time consuming. This is considering I have three beautiful girls also. However, I will continue to take real cake orders that don't conflict with my job schedule.
I have taken all the Wilton Cake decorating courses including Gum Paste Sugar Flower designs. I continue to research different methods of creating Beautiful Wedding Cakes. I buy Cake magazines and books, I constantly look on the internet (YouTube especially) at cake photos, videos and how-to-do methods. I look for the best recipes for cakes, icings, and fondant. I look for the best ways to apply icings and fondant to each cake for a smooth, flawless look. I search for methods on how to stack the tiers of tall cakes for true stability, and how to decorate cakes that are timeless and gorgeous!
Making Cakes is a true passion of mine!
I have purchased the Cricut Cake Machine. This now allows me to create designs that are very delicate and detailed. I can make anything from beautiful scrolling designs to simple shapes. This machine cuts the designs out of sheets of gum paste. The designs are then adhered to the cake. It's an amazing machine.
I am naturally artistic. I paint flowers as well. I have been painting for about 10 years now. I taught myself! I can incorporate this talent to my cakes with an array of colours using food colourings.
I also make wedding bouquets and boutonniers out of gorgeous, stunning, high end, very real looking Silk Flowers. I can provide more pictures of bouquets that I have created upon request. Prices will depend on size and flower types.
I believe that by either renting or buying a fake wedding cake is a great way for brides and grooms to save a ton of money and it allows me to do what I love, decorate cakes.
I hope I have the opportunity to create a Fake Wedding Cake of your dreams. And as I said before, only you will know it's not real!
