Wedding Cake Behind the Scenes Video- Crystal Waterfall Cake Construction
The video below show all the details of how we created a HUGE crystal waterfall wedding cake at jenny’s Cakes. This cake was delivered to the Radstone Hotel in South Lanarkshire in Scotland, before we relocated to Annan (near Gretna Green.)
We put together a time lapse video showing the steps involved in putting the spectacular wedding cake together. click below to see how we did it!
One of the most challenging tasks was packing and transporting the various tiers of the cake, getting them safely to the venue and then building all the tiers and the crystal stands in a secure way, ready for the Bride and Groom to make their entrance! (For such complex wedding cakes, we check the set-up cake in our bakery before packing, carefully checking for levels and stability before transporting the cake, removing (most of) the stress of final assembly at the venue!
The video above shows about 8 hours finishing work compressed into about 3 minutes!
This is the final stage in the long and complex process which begins with lining the various cake tins and baking each cake tier.
We then split and fill each tier of the cake, before coating in a thin layer of finest marzipan and then coating in a layer of sugar-paste.
Each cake is then stacked using heavy duty food-grade support tubes and rods.
The next stage is the cleaning and stringing thousands of Swaroski crystals on the two bespoke cake separators and the five tier cake itself!
