Hello. Some of you might allready know that I love the traditional wedding cakes. A lot of the times when I am looking at traditional cakes at the internet I see a lot of the sort of same wedding cake pictures in the style that I love. But I also noteced that a lot bakerys use these cakes as exemples in their book or at their site. Even a local bakery here in The Netherlands uses these as example(which is about the only bakery here in NL that does this style).

But my question is if somebody from you bakers ever replicated cales like these?

I have, and I really enjoy making them, but I don't think they are as pretty as modern ones.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

If you show pictures of such cakes to customers, you will get some orders.

 

When I made cakes for sale, these were the style that most people chose.  Usually they had royal icing flowers in clusters at the tops of the swag borders.  

 

These cakes are easy to make once you have all the hardware. I found piping the borders to be relaxing.  I used the same medium consistency buttercream for icing and piping.  If you are using the "crusting" buttercream recipe from Cake Central, then more liquid needs to be added.  

 

And these cakes with more up-to-date toppers should sell very well...look at the Wilton yearbooks and wedding cake books from the 1990's for sample images.

I couldn't find any bakery doing those cakes in Holland 11 years ago, it was hard enough to find a traditional wedding dress! I ended up getting married in England, where these cakes are more common.

Wow this post brought me way back to when thesae cakes were very popular. I agree with Bakingirene and I found relaxation in piping the borders, swags etc. here is my favorite one

 

 

 

 

And this one was nice too, except that the mother of the bride added those horrendous fake gold flowers!

Yes I made all 3. I used to have a ton of pictures from way back when, but it seems not a lot of people are ordering these anymore. Now it's all fondant, which by the way I don't work with. Nor buttercream. All I use is Pastry Pride which is a non dairy whipped topping.

This was my wedding cake, you'd think it was from the 80s going by how much things have changed, not 2002!

My husband customized the topper btw!

How did you manage to keep it from falling off the stand, sideways like that?
