If you love cheesecake and want it as your wedding cake, you have a variety of styling and assembling options. First, find out whether your wedding cake baker makes cheesecakes, or find one that specializes in cheesecakes, as this is not a standard wedding cake. Once you have settled on a supplier, choose the flavors, the number of cakes, accompaniments and decorative features. Remember to provide an alternative dessert for guests who may not like cheesecake.
Things You'll Need
- Cake stands
- Fruit toppings
- Candy melts
- Cake toppers
- Cake and table decorations
Turn a plain cheesecake into a stunning wedding cake by making a "gift-wrapped" wedding cheesecake with edible candy ribbons that encase the cake as though a package. Use pre-made candy panels and bows made from candy melts as the individual elements of the "cage" that will cover the cheesecake underneath. Pipe thin melted cocoa candy stripes onto the candy panels for a decorative effect. Attach the candy loops to each other with melted candy to form a bow. Apply the individual pieces to the cheesecake once it has baked and cooled.
Put together a multi-tiered wedding cheesecake -- on stands or stacked directly on top of one another. Use a cake stand that makes the individual cakes appear to float on their own, or attach a piece of tulle to disguise the connection that holds the levels together. Place the cheesecakes in graduated fashion from smallest on top to largest on the bottom or choose to make your bottom layer a set of multiple cheesecakes.
Decorate your cheesecakes with fruit toppings like strawberries, blueberries and chocolate or real flowers. You can also ice your cheesecakes with white chocolate frosting to give it the look of of a more formal cake.
Top your cheesecake with a cake topper that is special for you and strew ribbons, stars, marbles, butterflies all about and around your cake.
Place numerous cheesecakes arranged on different levels, at staggered heights and optionally joined together by bridges. Scatter the cheesecakes around the tablespace rather than consolidating them in one monolithic cake. Set individual cheesecakes on pedestals on either side of a main double-layered cheesecake wedding cake that is positioned slightly higher on its own pedestal. Connect all the cakes with lacy drawbridges.
