Looking Glass, Stenciled, Skeleton
Reva in LA designs a fantastic, topsy-turvy cake inspired by Alice In Wonderland. Plus, the CakeGirls tackle a tall cake with clean lines and elegant stencil work. Will Mary pull off the one-handed monogram application... while perched on a ladder? And Lauri at Cake Alchemy creates a cake for a Halloween wedding with, what else, giant skeleton toppers.
LA’s Merci Beaucoup bakery gets an order for a 40th Wedding Anniversary cake. The clients are two sisters, the daughters of the anniversary couple, who want Reva to create a cake that reflects the artistic life their parents have created for them. The party is going to be inspired by Alice in Wonderland, so the cake should reflect that as well. Reva gets carte blanche to go as far as she wants with the design... and she delivers with her "Through the Looking Glass" creation.
The CakeGirls in Chicago get an order from a bride and groom who want clean lines and minimal decoration. Brenda and Mary decide to work on this elegant, 5-tiered cake together. Brenda wants to practice her decoration skills, so she goes to work on the elaborate stencil applications. Mary’s fine with that, because she’ll be watching Brenda’s every move. Brenda doesn’t get it right at first, but eventually gets in a groove, and her ivory stencils on chocolate fondant make the cake both modern and elegant. After this tall cake is decorated and then stacked, the finishing touch must be added: a monogram on the top layer. In order to carry out this last bit of decoration, Mary pulls off the rare, one-handed monogram application (with double-tip change) while perched on a ladder – not for the faint of heart.
It’s no secret that Lauri at Cake Alchemy loves to make skeletons. So when a couple comes in and orders a skeleton bride and groom for the top of their cake, Lauri is in her element. But Lauri won’t be satisfied with just two skeletons, she wants a whole tier of festive skulls for this New York couple’s Halloween wedding.
