Decorating Wedding Cakes Sydney

Wedding cakes have had a little ‘topper’ decoration for generations. These have often been popular on birthday cakes too. But more recently the cakes have had their decorations as part of the cake itself; the decoration was edible. This completely edible style cake is an impressive feat, though a topper that acts as a keepsake also has a certain appeal.
Using the topper as a keepsake predates photos. Today we have multiple photos of the wedding, and many images of the cake, to remember the wedding by, so we don’t need the topper.
Yet a cake topper decoration can still be incorporated into a cake, wedding or otherwise.
Some poplar ideas:
  • A little bride and groom – a classic idea that never goes out of style.
  • The bride and groom as children.
  • Cartoon characters
  • Cute Animals –  Penguins, butterflies …etc.
  • The married couple as animals that suit their personality.
  • Married couples (new) name.
  • Horse Drawn Wedding Coaches.
  • Light hearted and comical ideas are Okay, but you don’t want to be embarrassed by them when you look back in ten year’s time.
  • Wooden toppers, handcrafted and DIY.
  • Silhouette metal images of the happy couple. These can be laser cut from a single piece of metal. Black and gold silhouettes work well, especially if lit from behind.
  • Any heirloom topper from your (great) grandparents.

We believe cooking is a creative and healthy pastime. If the number of television cooking show is any indication then home cooking is becoming increasingly popular. Though this may just be an increase in the number Television viewers. Nonetheless, we thought we might discuss some good kitchen habits.
  • Keep a full stock of basic ingredients – Different flours, different sugars, baking powder, plenty of butter and Bicarb of soda. It is horrible to find you have run out while part way through a recipe.
  • Packaged spice is okay, but grinding you own is even better, a small coffee grinder can do this well; or use a pestle and mortar.
  • Most multitasking is risk and nor recommended, but playing music while you cook is okay. You might even time things with the right song.
  • Aprons, tablecloths on benchtops, newspaper over spill areas …etc. all make clean-up easier.
  • Read recipes carefully. It is easy to miss something. Try reading recipes in advance while on the smartphone or other device.
  • Enjoy the process of cooking. Be creative with the process, be social with the results.
  • Good quality ingredients make all the difference. If you are spending your time cooking then make sure it’s not compromised with substandard ingredients. Organic egg, real butter …etc.
  • Room temperature ingredients tend to be better than cold ingredient from the fridge. Room temperature should be medium cool.
  • Line up all the ingredient in advance.
  • Buy some good measuring spoons, cup and devices. Check the accuracy of scales.
  • It can be hard to measure sticky things like honey or syrup as they stick to the spoon. Try coating the spoon with oil first.
  • Put a cloth under chopping boards of mixing bowls to stop them slipping.
  • Make notes in your cookbooks or recipe pages as you learn from cooking your experience.
  • Preheat ovens. This give a more accurate cooking time because you are not including the time it takes for the oven to heat. It also prevent you from making the mistake of forgetting to turn the oven on.
  • Use times for the right cooking time. Many apps are available for this.
  • If you are cooking for family / children’s lunches it helps to make larger batches. Cook enough biscuits to last a week.
  • Experiment in small steps, and in small batches. You will discover a few good ideas this way, and make a lot is mistakes.
  • Appearance of the food is part of the point. Make you tasty cake look tasty too.

A Little Cake History

Wedding Cakes Sydney

Having a cake at a wedding has been a tradition in many cultures since ancient times. But these cakes and traditions vary greatly. There have been countless styles of cake, which means modern couples have no end of ideas to choose from.
Cakes in the ancient world wasn’t usually sweet. They were more like a bagel or plain muffin, often made from barley. In the rare occasion where they were sweetened they contained a little honey. In many traditions this plain cake was broken over the brides head, somehow symbolizing fertility and good luck.
In some traditions the bridesmaids would pull one of several ribbons from the cake. The lucky girl who pulled the one ribbon attached to a charm was thought to be the next to marry.
Western cultures have seen white as a symbol of purity for several centuries. But the tradition of white dresses and cakes at weddings didn’t really gains popularity till the wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It is speculated that she may have actually re-introduced an older or fading tradition here, as there are records of white iced cakes before this time. Nonetheless royal icing dates comes from Queen Victoria’s cake. This became popular not only because of the sweet taste, but because it helped hold up several layers of cake and decorations.
A cake for the groom is another old tradition that has crept back into fashion. It actually dates back to at least the 17th century and Britain and parts of Europe. This has continued to be fairly common in some parts of the USA for several past generations.
One of the few recent innovations to wedding tradition has been the cake topper. Prior to photograph this was one items that could be retained as a keepsake.
Keeping the top tier of the cake is another reasonably recent tradition. It was obviously hard to keep this before the advent of the refrigeration. The idea is for the married couple to keep this top layer of the cake for a year and to eat it on the first wedding anniversary.
