Wedding # 13 : Chocolate Sponge Cake With Butter Icing



This is by far the smallest and cutest wedding cake I've made this year. Three tiers, each with 4 layers of chocolate sponge cake generously filled with vanilla butter icing were sandwiched together. The outside was left unfrosted so the even layers of cake and icing were seen. How simple is that? The addition of roses and dusting of icing sugar gave this simple cake a perfect finishing touch. The cake highlighted the simple dessert table at the wedding.


I used two x 20 cm baking tins for the base, two x 15 cm baking tins for the middle and two x 10 cm mousse ring for the top. Perfect size for the  wedding party.

Petals were scattered around the base of the cake. They gave it a whole new look. When I went back to work, I was told the couple were so happy with how the cake turned out. They had never imagined the cake would look more beautiful than the one it was modeled after. Taste-wise, the couple said it was a lot better than what they've had before :)
