Karen's Quilted Wedding Cake and Card


Hi Everyone :)

Sorry it has been a while since my last post... I was starting to feel a bit of blogger's guilt! I have been doing quite a bit of crafting lately but haven't had much time to post any of it. Hopefully I will be able to soon ;)

So today I want to share with you all my first EVER wedding cake! My friend Karen, (the bride who I've worked with for many years) had asked me for a simple quilted ivory cake with a hot pink rose. Well, what the bride wants is what the bride must get! I must admit I was a bit nervous with this one as there is very little room for error when working with white cakes, plus it's a WEDDING cake! Eeek, talk about pressure! That's why I could never do this full time... too stressful, lol! But in the end I was very pleased with how it turned out!


For those interested in what is actually inside the cake 
Top layers- Vanilla & Chocolate flavoured - baked in two 6 inch round pans.
Bottom layer - Vanilla & Chocolate flavoured - baked in a 10 inch round pans.
Entire cake was frosted with vanilla butter cream icing and covered with fondant.
Topper from Precious Moments.


To go along with the cake I also made Karen and Alan a simple card.
The quilted embossing folder I used comes from We r Memory Keepers.
Stamp from Studio G
Orchid Die from Spellbinders


Congratulations Karen and Alan, I wish you both the very best in your future lives together.
Hope you enjoyed and devoured the cake!

Thanks for stopping by Everyone!
Hope this Simple Wedding Cake and Card has inspired you as well :)


Happy Crafting!
