Buttercream Wedding Cake with Olive Leaves


I was so happy to be able to make the wedding cake for my brother and his wife for their recent wedding in Spain.  It was a challenge baking in an unknown oven, with different ingredients, and in a short period of time.  I had a lot of fun and I think their cake turned out beautifully and fit with their theme really well.


Raspberry Buttercream filling and a Swiss Buttercream icing.


Each tier had 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling.


The Raspberry Swiss Buttercream filling was a huge hit.  The bride's mother made macerated raspberries with cinnamon sugar before I arrived and I mixed them into the buttercream for a fruity twist.  I also soaked the cake in the macerated raspberries to ensure it was extra moist and flavorful.


They had a garden themed wedding with their reception in her mother's huge backyard.  The garden was strung with lights and full of flowers, and this cake blended right into the setting.


The bride and groom requested a simple piping design with olive branches.


They had awesome cake toppers designed on Etsy, they were created to look just like them.  


The olive branches and the white frosting compliment each other nicely and draw on the simplicity and elegance of a garden wedding.


Congratulations Zach and Sara!  I was honored to make your cake for you and your guests.


To many years to come!
