Wedding Cake White Frosting
I’m showing you how to make white wedding cake icing. Flavor is most important for me, that’s why I use two varieties of wedding cake white frosting: German / Ermine buttercream and Swiss meringue buttercream.
German / Ermine buttercream is the tastiest buttercream in my opinion, consisting of only one third butter and the remaining part is tasty and light vanilla custard or pudding. To make sure it’s a white buttercream it’s best to make the custard without mixes and only using vanilla flavor to avoid a yellow color. I use the German or Ermine buttercream to pipe a buttercream ring for each layer and as a crumb coat.

How To Decorate Wedding Cake With Flowers
Swiss Meringue Buttercream is the best decoration for 3 tier white wedding cake ideas. A super creamy buttercream which is super soft. Unfortunately, this buttercream doesn’t taste that great because it just tastes sweet, so I make sure to only use as much of it as necessary.
To keep a wedding cake design simple these buttercream lines are super easy to make and a modern design! To do this, cover the tiers in Swiss meringue buttercream and smooth it out with a cake smoother. Then slightly heat up a spatula, dry it and place the tip of it on the bottom of the cake and continuously turn the turntable slowly work your way up. This is how to make buttercream lines.
Flowers for Wedding Cake
Flowers for wedding cake should ideally be real flowers in my opinion. To assure it’s hygiene, best to wrap the flower stems in cling film and then decorate the white wedding cake with flowers. On site, the wedding cake is assembled and stacked and decorated with flowers. How to decorate wedding cake with flowers between tiers? This is a flower waterfall design. Start with the greens, then add big flowers in between and lastly finish off with the smaller flowers. For this wedding cake white flowers would also be beautiful, but I always request flowers from the wedding decorations to make it 100% fit to the entire wedding decoration.
How to freeze wedding cake? It is best to cut them into pieces and then wrap them in cling film and freeze them. To thaw, simply take out a few hours before serving and allow to come to room temperature.
