Wedding Cakes Cincinnati - Wiedeman mansion weddings cincinnati
Often times I'm asked "what's your favorite cake?" Without hesitation, I always respond that my favorite cake is my last cake:) I'm constantly learning and researching new techniques and methods, ingredients and trends, and have a long list of things that I would like to try on new orders!
So when Veronica and Michael told me that they wanted a stained glass themed wedding cake, I jumped with joy (not literally, but in my head:). They are marring at the historical and stunning Wiedeman Mansion, which has the most beautiful stained glass pieces and decorative windows...and I'm a huge fan of stained glass!
Of course when you say stained glass, you think Louis Comfort Tiffany; and when you say stained glass and cake, you think Maggie Austin. Maggie is an incredible pastry-chef and artist who has graciously shared many of her techniques with the online cake decorating community.
This is my testing samples for Veronica and Michael's cake. I have used powder edible paint diluted with ever clear and black edible ink markers to delineate the shapes and motifs of my floral inspired stained glass patterns. Our cakes are iced in rolled chocolate, not fondant, and this technique works beautifully on our delicious chocolate panels.
I'm so looking forward to be able to work on the actual cake!...It's due in a few days. Come back and cheek it out. I think that it will be spectacular.
