Red and Ivory Cascading Rose Wedding Cake

Happy Monday.
My life is starting to get back to normal. Last week was spent working on the cake and taking care of my family. Everything else, including sleep, was put on the back burner. I even skipped most of my workouts and one of my runs.
I was so happy to finally have the cake completed and delivered.

The cake is french vanilla with dulce de leche filling, amaretto filling and strawberry mousse filling. The cake is covered in marshmallow fondant and the ivory roses are made from gumpaste. The red roses are fondant with tylose mixed in to make it similar to gumpaste.

The hearts were carved to look like a puff heart pillow.

My dslr battery died after a couple of pictures, so I had to use my phone. Hopefully, I was able to get a couple of good pictures on my dslr. If I did, I’ll post them later. I haven’t edited them yet.
I have another fondant cake to make later this week. I have an idea in mind, but I’m not completely sure what I’m going to make. It is for a milestone birthday. I’ll post pictures of the birthday cake next week.
Have a great day.

  1. Hi there, beautiful cake..., How much tylose do you mix with the fondant or was MMF?, and do you know if I can use gum tex instead?...Thank you for sharing it,

    1. Thank you. Honestly, I don't know how much tylose I mixed into the fondant. The red fondant was store bought. I always buy red and black fondant pre-colored, unless I need a very small amount then I use homemade. To make the gumpaste red roses, I probably mixed about 1/4 tsp into about a handful of fondant. I also went off the feel of it. If it still feels too soft, I would add a little more. I also added tylose to the homemade ivory fondant that covered the cake. I added maybe a 1/2 tsp to about 1/2 pound of fondant. I'm working on another cake this week, so I'll try to measure the amount of tylose that I use. I've never used gum tex. I've read that it works similar to tylose. If you use it, let me know how it turns out.
