Wedding Cake: Red and White Roses, Heart Scrolling

For this wedding cake, it used a cascade of red and white full roses, rosebuds, and green leaves.  If you are doing a stacked cake and are going to build a cascade, you really need to start from the bottom and work your way up.  If you have roses pre-made you can stick them on with fresh icing globs beneath them.  You can also make them as you go, but depending on the height of your layers you may need to make icing dams and ledges for them to rest on.

For the heart scrolling, I used a large heart cookie cutter to put the outline in the base icing.  I used a wider writing tip to make the lines, and then freehanded the scrolls and dots coming off of them.

I suggest making little dots on where your roses are going to be and then making the scrolling.  That way, you don't have to scroll any more than needed and you also don't have to have a heart awkwardly or partially covered.

The icing around the bottom of the layers is a small discrete rosette piping, as we wanted the main focus to be on the heart scrolling the bride chose and the beautiful flowers.

We were really happy with how this cake turned out, it looked beautiful and luxurious with the full cascade.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
