Paul introduces us to his beautiful wood effect wedding cake. Paul has learned a fantastic technique that effortlessly creates a tree bark like effect and has generously been given permission to share it thanks to Cakes and Crafts by Kass. The piped trees look pretty lovely as well, we're sure you'll agree!
This cake is perfect for a winter wedding and could be adapted to fit anytime of the year as well as other occasions. Just imagine creating beautiful autumnal tones with edible autumn leaves scattered around the board. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a wood/bark effect in multiple ways, create a brushed metal effect on sugarpaste, create standing piped trees and much more. With the skills learned you'll be able to create all kinds of striking cakes, as the design can be adapted to suit any occasion. This cake is perfect for those looking to progress from beginner to intermediate, and would make a fantastic addition to your cake resume.

We'd love to see your take on the Winter Wedding Cake - so share your snaps with us on our Facebook page!
