Making Vegan Fondant

Vegan Fondant Ingredients

As cake decorator I had to adjust customer’s taste and design preferences, but sometimes there are even dietary restrictions to comply with.

When I received a request for vegan wedding cupcakes with fondant decorations I was a little hesitant at first, but then I accepted the challenge and set out to make vegan fondant (since I have never seen it for purchase).

In the end I was successful in creating the fondant and the fondant figures for decorations.

Specialty Pink and Green Wedding Cake

Cascading Flowers Wedding Cake

For a wedding on a houseboat on the Okanagan Lake in Kelowna I was asked to create a three-tiered wedding cake red velvet and cream cheese as flavors iced in the white fondant.

The wedding colours were hot pink and lime green, so I created sugar flowers in those colors.

There are pink roses and green chrysanthemum, and light pink and baby green filler flowers.

Specialty Wedding Cake

I hope everyone had a merry and joyful Christmas 2010 and a good start into 2011.

The last 2 months it has been quiet on my blog, but this doesn’t mean I was not busy. The exact opposite actually. I was very busy planning and organizing our wedding which we celebrated on December 18th. Yes, I got married just before Christmas. It was a real Winter Wonderland wedding!

After spending the holidays with friends and family we went to Mexico for our honeymoon and just returned. Now it’s time to update you about the part of the wedding that interests you most: The Cake.

As a custom cake artist of course I could not hand over the task of making the wedding cake to anyone. I tell you, it was a lot of stress with all the other things there were to do, but with the help of a friend we managed well despite a few hiccups.

We don’t have any pictures from our official photographer yet, but a guest happened to snatch a few pictures of the cake in the reception hall before most people arrived. Once I have more pictures I will show you those as well. But here it is…

I decided to have separated tiers instead of a stacked cake as it is common practice in my home country Germany. All tiers are placed on a glass circle which are elevated by upside down wine glasses. Inside those we put white roses.

Our wedding colours were white and blue. Therefore the cake is covered in white fondant with a blue satin ribbon going around. The tops of the three bottom tiers are decorated with a big blue fantasy flower with white centers and rhinestone topped pins as stamens.

On the top tier sits a teddy bear bridal couple. The tiny flowers here have small rhinestones as centers.

For flavours we had carrot cake with cream cheese filling, chocolate cake with chocolate turtle praline filling, and lemon cake with raspberry and lemon curd filling.
