This section tends to be wordy as it gets into the details of what entails in a cake design and its process. Hopefully, breaking down into the following sections helps you understand better:
Our cakes are mostly composed of layers of sponge cakes alternated with frostings, like buttercream or chocolate ganache. It is also possible to insert various types of fillings like pralines, fruity curds or jams between the layers of sponge cakes and frostings as well. More details can be found under the flavours section below.
After having an idea of the cake's composition, the next step is to understand the different styles of a structured cake. We can probably divide into 3 different cake types: Naked cake, Buttercream cake and Fondant covered cake.
1. Naked cake:
A naked cake does not have any topping such as fondant, frosting, meringue, chocolate… this type of cake is designed as layer cakes that proudly tout thick stripes of buttercream or chocolate ganache filling. Without the typical outer coat, the interior of the cake is completely exposed. it can have fruit or different kind of fillings. Thus, it has a simple and natural look suitable for rustic themes.
usally adorned with fresh flowers instead of sugar flowers
more affordable for those with a limited budget
less rich in taste without fondant and being covered with buttercream
less room for creativity on the decoration aspect of the cake
2. Buttercream/ ganache cake :
Buttercream cake is covered entirely with buttercream and here, we use Swiss Meringue Buttercream to cover our wedding cakes as it is more stable, smoother and is less sweet than other types of buttercream. It is possible also to use chocolate gananche to cover the cake in place of buttercream
suitable for those who do not like fondants
less smooth on the decoration than fondant covered cakes
3. Fondant covered cake :
Fondant covered cake is first coated entirely with frosting of your choice and then covered with fondant/ sugarpaste. Here, the fondant acts as a blank canvas that allows your imaginations go free with creativity and inspirations.
fondant/ sugarpaste allow the cake to have a smoother finish
more flexibility in terms of creativity with the cake decorations
suitable for sugar and fresh flowers
can be costly due to price of fondant and labour intensivity
