Ivory Snowflake Wedding Cake
This 4-tier wedding cake was for my cousin's wedding this week. She requested an ivory cake with the hearts, snow, and snowflakes incorporated. The top tier is a very small 4-inch round cake for the couple to save for their first anniversary. The tier below that is my first attempt at an eggless cake, as one of my cousins has an allergy to eggs (as well as almonds - so no almond extract in the frosting either). It is a vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream. Below that tier is a chocolate cake tier with chocolate cream filling, then the bottom tier is a vanilla cake with vanilla cream filling. The whole cake is frosted and decorated with vanilla buttercream. The red hearts are made from Wilton Candy Melts. The wedding was so lovely and it is always great to see family. Congratulations to my cousin Layna and her new husband, Jeff!!!
