If you look at the picture, I made the bride and groom's initials out of the dough so I could put them on the cake.
The Kransekage rings are baked and ready to be put together.
I used Royal Icing to put the rings together and basically followed the instructions on the Meringue Powder I bought.
Recipe: Royal Icing
1 1/2 Tablespoons Meringue Powder
2 cups Confectioner Sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons warm water.
Mix together and using a mixer, whip until the icing forms stiff peaks. Takes about 7-10 minutes.
Put into a piping bag and set aside. Use either a fine tip or do as I did, cut a small hole in the end of the bag when I was ready to pipe.
I used a Wilton round cardboard cake plate to put the cake on, however if you have a pretty plate you want to use, follow the basic instructions.
When taking the rings out of the forms, place the baked side down, and the other side up. This makes for a prettier presentation.
First I piped a small amount of icing in a round and placed the first ring, the largest ring on top. This helps it to adhere to the plate. Using the piping bag of icing, making a back and forth motion, go around the cake ring, and drizzle the icing on. Then take the next biggest ring, and place on top of the just drizzled icing. Continue doing this and build up the cone.
At the end, pipe a little frosting onto the backs of the initials you made, stick them to the cake. Forget to take pictures until after you've started to decorate it.
Ideally you have Danish Flags decorating the cake, along with 'crackers', but I made some Gator and Nole flags since both bride and groom are die hard football fans, one is a 'Nole' fan and the other a 'Gator' fan. I also made bows with the colors of the Danish, American, Polish and Italian flags.
Got them all stuck on there, and realized I'd neglected to make the 'top' which consists of a round button for the top.
I showed you my wedding cakes yesterday, for your drooling pleasure, here's a few more cakes.
All baked by my brother, he does an amazing job.
|My sister's 50th birthday combined with my 25th Wedding Anniversary cake.|
And the other cakes, well, gee did I mention I have some incredibly talented siblings. The other cakes are ones my sister made.
In the meantime...
Anyone got a wedding or special occasion coming up?
