How to Make a Chandelier Cake
A chandelier cake looks stunning, but how do you go about making one? Here are some tips. The first thing to remember is that decorating a chandelier cake requires time and patience. It is important to cover exposed rods and collars. You can add embellishments such as flowers, bows, and other accessories to the cake. When assembling the cake, use one hand only. You must ensure that the cake is strong enough to be carried without causing damage.
A chandelier cake looks like it has many layers, each hanging like a chandelier. Although many cake decorators are afraid of making a chandelier cake the beauty and awe factor make it worth it. Caroline Nagorcka, a cake designer, created this stunning chandelier wedding cake. It has multiple tiers that are connected with a wrought-iron stand. Each tier is decorated with flowers and other decor elements to enhance the beauty of this stunning cake.
Using the same technique, you can make a floating separator to create a chandelier effect. You can use crystals or perspex for this effect. A stencil can also be used to create a chandelier cake. A good cake designer in the UK is Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium. For example, Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding cake was inspired by an antique chandelier. This stunning cake embodies the elegance and vintage grace of that era.
Next, make a foundation layer of cake to support the structure. Sugarpaste should be pressed down onto the foundation piece. Don’t make a larger hole than necessary. Then, use cake cards or rods to layer and fill the pieces. After the pieces have cooled, slide them over the rods. Secure them with ganache. Make sure you use a smooth surface to apply the sugarpaste.
Assemble the cake by holding the bottom of the 15cm cake with one hand and the collar with the other. Once the collar is secure, you can slot the next tier of cake onto the rod and collar. If the tiers are not quite flat, tuck the wire into the rod and cover it with a ribbon. Once the tiers are secure, your cake is ready to be hung! Enjoy!
