50th Anniversary Cake with the Wilton Book Cake Pan

I would argue that this is the most underrated pan in the Wilton Line.  There are so many cute things that are possible with the book pan, but one of the ways we use it is for anniversary cakes.

It's appropriate, you see, because of love stories and other such mush ;).

You can't help but love a 50th wedding anniversary cake because it reminds you that there are people out there who have been through so much together.

This was clearly a double 50th anniversary celebration, which in my opinion makes it a million times better. 

On the sides of the book, we used the ridged side of the largest Wilton tip that is used to ice cakes, the 798 tip.  If you don't own that tip I highly suggest it.  You want to press the tip up really close to your cake so that all the icing stays on, and pull the icing line at a slow but steady pace (for thicker icings especially). 

We piped around the edges of the cake, added yellow roses and green leaves, and made curly flourishes in each corner of the book pages.

Next we put each couple's names on a page with a scroll-y heart instead of an "&" as it seemed so appropriate.  It not only blatantly acknowledged the lovey theme of the event, but also was a nod to the thought of names being carved in trees and such. At least that is what it reminded me of.

Then we just stuck in a gold 50 and a congratulations sign, and it was ready to go.

If you know some other people that decorate, this pan is well worth buying as a group and sharing if you don't think you will use it enough to justify buying it.  I think it would be a GREAT cake for any milestones like graduations, anniversaries, going away parties, baptisms, etc. 

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
