All our wedding cakes and specialty cakes and fillings are made fresh from scratch, from only the finest natural ingredients; pure butter, Tahitian Vanilla, fine liquors & extracts, fresh fruit purees, nut pastes, preserves, imported spices and reductions, and Swiss chocolate & fondant. Each wedding cake tier (specialty cake tier) has 4 layers of cake and three layers of filling. All wedding cakes and specialty cakes are finished in meringue buttercream and Swiss fondant. Mousselines are mixtures of Swiss buttercream and fresh fruit purees, liquors, coffee reductions, citrus curds, or nut pastes, and have a light, creamy texture. Swiss buttercream is a combination of sugar, egg whites, pure butter, and natural extracts and liquors. Fondant is a sugar-based dough that gives our wedding cakes and specialty cakes a satiny, smooth look, and can be flavored and colored. Ganache is a dense mixture of chocolate and cream, and has a bold, rich flavor. Your wedding cake can be made all out of one cake flavor and different fillings, or 2 or more cake favors with complementary fillings. The top of your wedding cake is an extra tier reserved just for you and is never counted in the wedding cake guest servings. For example, if you order a wedding cake to serve 200, your total wedding cake servings will be 200 plus the top cake tier (usually serves between 6 – 15, depending on the cake size).
