3-Tier Wedding Cake

I never realized how much work goes into a simple tiered cake like this! But I made this white cake with passion fruit filling and vanilla buttercream frosting for my brother’s wedding. I baked each layer and froze them separately (few days a head of time), then assembled each tier, chilled it, crumb coated it, chilled it again, and frosted it with its final layers. Day of the wedding, I brought each tier separately along with my wooden support dowels and assembled on the spot – I didn’t have any cake carriers tall enough for the whole thing! My Mom supplied fresh flowers and my sister helped me arrange them. There were a few rough spots on the frosting, but the flowers were great to cover those areas up. We only had an hour at the site before the event started, so it was quite a rush, but we did it 🙂


This cake required a test run… i made these cakes, froze them, crumb-coated them, and froze again until I had time to test assemble… here they are thawing out… cakes everywhere!




Good consistency

Next time, I would put more passion into the filling and give myself a little more time for assembling and adding finishing touches.
