You don’t have to make everything yourself.
The wedding dessert can be as simple as using your favorite cake mix or even just some vanilla ice cream.
In fact, many couples use a vanilla ice-cream bar instead of a cake mix.
And if you’re not a cake-maker, you can use any dessert mix you’d like, like homemade or store-bought.
Here are some tips to make your wedding dessert the most fabulous you’ve ever had.
Bake your cake layers at least a week ahead of time.
Cake layers take longer to bake than other desserts.
You can make your cake in advance of the wedding, or make your layers before the wedding and bake them in advance.
Mix the frosting.
Some couples use their own cake mix and mix the frostings before the cake layers, but others use a mixer or use an immersion blender.
Use a food processor or a blender to combine the cake mix ingredients and set it aside to cool.
Bake the layers.
Bake two layers at a time, alternating with a third layer to get the most cake and frosting consistency.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Remove the plastic wrap to a cutting board or baking sheet and use a fork to scrape out the frosted sides.
Cut the frosters into thin strips or squares, depending on the size of your cake.
Add the icing.
If you use a icing machine, place the pieces of cake into a bowl and sprinkle a small amount of icing over each piece.
Add your favorite frosting, such as a vanilla cream, coconut cream, or chocolate sprinkles, to the top.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean.
Keep the cake covered in the refrigerator to let the frosts set.
