rustic buttercream cake

I usualy work with sugarpaste but looking to do a wedding cake with rustic buttercream look…I have seen it done with a ganache crumbcoat under the buttercream….would this make it more stable. Any advice would be welcome as i have not done a buttercream cake before!!Also would this be easier than sugarpaste as the cake has to be completely white no flowers etc.,

Hi elaine77

In the Cakeflix buttercream cakes tutorials, there are several buttercream wedding cakes that may be of help to you. Search in the tutorials for buttercream wedding cakes to see them.

Specifically, the rustic wedding cake is among the group and can be found here:

Rustic Wedding

I hope the suggestions will be of help. Please post back if you need more information. 🙂

ps: I have never worked in buttercream to create wedding cakes. I prefer to work with ganache, I think a thin covering of ganache under a buttercream-covered cake would help stablise the structure. However, too much, in my humble opinion, would make it sickly sweet.

Hi yes i have seen that one. I am going to make and freeze the cakes in advance as we have to travel to the venue the day before. Just one question..when could i put the dowels in…before i freeze them or after they have defrosted?many thanks

I used to always dowel a partially frozen cake.
So, freeze without the dowels until you need the cakes. Then, dowel before they defrost completely. Hope this makes sense.

Happy New Year 🙂
