I'm getting married in a few months, and I want to make my own wedding cake! After speaking with some of you, I learned that a lot of you plan to make your own wedding cake too!
Before I made this decision, I considered a lot of factors! If you want to know if you should make your own wedding cake, I highly recommend reading this: https://chelsweets.com/2019/03/20/making-your-own-wedding-cake/
I figured it would also be helpful to share an in-depth tutorial, showing step by step how to make a four-tiered wedding cake! This cake is made with 10 inch, 8 inch, 6 inch, and 4 inch tiers.
If you want to know how big of a cake you should make based on the number of guests, I highly recommend checking out my cake portion guide: https://chelsweets.com/2019/03/24/cake-portion-guide/
This wedding cake is decorated with fresh flowers, and is simply frosted with buttercream (no fondant!). I walk through leveling the cake layers, properly supporting each tier, stacking the tiers on a center dowel, and of course how to make an impromptu wedding cake box (thank goodness for Home Depot).
This cake is frosted with my American buttercream, and the recipe can be found here: https://chelsweets.com/2016/11/01/the-best-american-buttercream-recipe/
