  • Project By: Erica OBrien  Photos By: Val McCormick    Necco wafers are given a glamorous makeover in this easy DIY.     Ingredients light corn syrup, Necco wafers (quantity will depend on size of cake), paint brush, edible gold glitter     Step One Carefully unwrap package and select the colors that you'd like to use. For this project, we selected pastel pink and mint green. Use all the colors or select only some. (Bear in mind that you will most likely need to purchase multiple packages.)     Step Two Dip paint brush in corn syrup and brush over half of smooth side of a wafer (the side that does not say Necco)     Step Three Dip into glitter. Allow to dry.     Step Four Determine the design you'll create with the wafers.  We positioned four rows of wafers, stacked in vertical columns, with the glitter-dipped wafer positioned in the third row from the bottom.      Step Five To apply wafers to the cake, brush the corn syrup on entire Necco side of wafer.     Step Six Gently attach to cake, holding in place for a few seconds.     Step Seven Position your wafers in precise rows and columns to achieve a clean, professionally designed appearance.      Step Eight Apply glitter-dipped wafers in the same way.  Continue attaching wafers to cake until desired pattern is achieved     Ta-da!  Making your own ultra-modern, glitter-infused cake is as easy as that.

    Fortune cookies are a sweet and easy way to create edible keepsakes for your wedding cake. You can easily print your own messages, or ask your stationery designer to match your invitation suite. This is a fun activity in which couples can participate together. Here, our bride and groom both chose messages that had special meaning for them, and our stationery designer, Roseville Designs, created fortunes using two different fonts (script for her; print for him).

    What You'll Need:

    Fondant in the color of your choice Board for rolling Rolling pin Cornstarch to prevent sticking Round cookie cutter in the size of your choice Fortune cookie messages Personalized messages on paper cut to ½” high x 3” wide  

    Instructions:    Lightly dust rolling board with cornstarch.     Knead fondant until soft and gently press to flatten on rolling board.      Roll fondant until thin.      Cut fondant using round cookie cutter.      Place fortune in center of fondant round.      Carefully fold fondant in half until edges meet.      Pull sides in (away from folded edge) until they meet.        Make as many fortune cookies as desired.      Arrange fortune cookies on cake. Eat the fondant and save the fortunes forever!       Here's the full invitation suite by Roseville Designs with fortunes and fortune cookies!

    French macarons are all the rage right now, but they can be tricky to make yourself and very expensive to buy. This project is both super easy and inexpensive, making it the perfect DIY. Here, we've put our 'mock'arons on cupcakes, but they would look great stacked on a plate or affixed to a cake. Get creative mixing colors and the possibilities are endless.

    Step 1: Prepare Your Cookies   What you'll need:  1 box (or more, depending on quantity needed) Nilla wafers (or other vanilla flavored wafer-style cookie) powdered food color in color(s) of your choice food-use only paintbrush water

    Add water to powdered food color a little at a time to create a concentrated paste that is thin enough to be painted on. Avoid making mixture too liquid.     Hold cookie domed side up. Begin at center and brush in even strokes all around top and onto sides. Color will deepen as it dries.     If a deeper color is desired, add second coat.     Lay cookies on parchment paper. Allow cookies to dry overnight.      Step 2: Fill Your Cookies   What you'll need:  large piping bag painted and dried wafer cookies large round piping tip (We used Ateco tip 7) buttercream of your choice, optionally colored to match painted wafer cookie

    Holding flat, unpainted side of wafer cookie up, begin squeezing a small amount of buttercream onto cookie, to about ¼" from edge     Place another cookie on top and press gently until buttercream spreads to edge. Refrigerate briefly to set buttercream.     Place 'mock'arons on top of cupcakes. Arrange neatly on cake stand.

    Whether you're planning a sky-high tiered cake or something small, simple and sweet, decorating your own wedding cake can be simple and fun. Start with a blank canvas and pretty it up with flowers and fruit following the guidelines below!

    What You'll Need: 

    Ranunculus – 3 stems Dahlias – 3 stems Figs Blackberries

    Step One: Cut the flowers heads off the stems of the ranunculus and dahlias.     Step Two: With the cake placed on the cake stand or cake plate of your choice, start by placing the dahlia heads on top of the cake (centered).     Step Three: After the dahlias are in place, next place the ranunculus heads. The cake top is complete!     Step Four: Now it's time to complete the look with the figs and black berries.     Decorate around the bottom of the cake with the black berries and the figs, cut a few of the figs in half to show their unique beauty and texture.     Such an easy and inexpensive way to decorate your wedding cake for your big day or for any celebration!  Have fun!

  • Project and Photos by Erica OBrien     Erica OBrien created this romantic piping technique exclusively for Project Wedding. The look is fabulous for a wedding cake or bridal shower. The best part is it was designed to perfectly imperfect, so it’s easy for anyone to master. Wildflowers enhance the look, but are totally optional.     What You'll Need: Buttercream in color of your choice(Erica used Swiss Merengue buttercream, but if you’re using a confectioner sugar-based icing, be sure to sift the sugar thoroughly) One 12" piping bag Ateco ruffle tip 401 Fresh flowers (optional)   Tip 401 creates an open half-tube shape     Practice on a flat surface. Hold the tip at a 45-degree angle to your work surface and squeeze gently in an up and down ruffle motion.     Hold piping bag at a 45-degree angle to cake, with tip opening facing cake. Hover slightly above cake surface and begin gently squeezing buttercream out.     Once buttercream makes contact with cake, continue squeezing gently and evenly but begin motioning to create a crescent, or small swag, shape. For this step, tip should still be hovering above cake surface and should not come into contact with cake.     Attach first swag to cake by gently touching cake surface.     Continue motion creating swags all around top fifth of cake side.     Once first row is complete, offset next row by beginning at center of swag from first row.      Continue with this row, ending and beginning each swag at the center of swag from row above. Continue until entire cake is covered, five rows total.     Optional: Arrange fresh flowers on top and sides of cake.     Ta Da!

  • Project by Erica Obrien   No plates, no wrappers, these bite-sized gems are completely edible and perfect for everything from a formal dessert table at a wedding to a laid back gathering of girlfriends at a bridal shower. Of course the colors are customizable as are the sizes.
        Step 1: Make the Cups At least one day in advance, gather what you’ll need and make the cups. The farther in advance, the better. Be sure to make extras in case of breakage.      Here’s what you’ll need: Cardstock Tape Ruler Fondant in color of your choice Food-use only ruler Rolling pin Pizza wheel Water Two small round cutters, one slightly larger than the other Cornstarch (to prevent sticking)     Roll cardstock tightly.     Insert smaller round cutter into rolled up cardstock to ensure a snug fit.     Tape down length of cardstock to secure.     Use small amount of cornstarch to prevent fondant from sticking.     Roll fondant into long thin strip.     Place ruler on fondant and use pizza wheel to cut straight line. Save excess.     Repeat on other side of ruler, matching strip width to height of smallest cutter.     Use ruler to straighten edge of strip.     Cut strip into 4 ½” pieces, or large enough to wrap around cardstock roll with a slight overlap, creating a closed ring.     Wrap strips around cardstock roll, securing overlap with enough water to ensure sticking. Allow to dry at least overnight. Repeat as many times as needed until desired number of rings are made.       Roll out extra fondant. Using larger cutter, cut an equal number of discs as you have rings.     When dry, rings will be able to stand upright. Rings will create sides of cups; discs will form bottom of cups     Step 2: Make and Decorate the Cakes   Here’s what you’ll need: Cake of your choice baked in 2” high pan Piping bag with large round tip 8 and filled with your choice of buttercream Fondant rings and discs (made in advance) Edible “confetti” (sprinkles, sugar pearls, fondant circles, non pareils) in the color of your choice       Place fondant ring on fondant disc.     Place small amount of buttercream at bottom of ring to secure disc and cake to ring.     Use smaller cutter to cut cake round.     Insert cutter into ring and gently press to release cake. Press down to secure cake to buttercream.     Top cake round with candy kiss-shaped dollop of buttercream.     Top cake cups with confetti.
      Enjoy!

  • Project and Photos by Erica Obrien   The best part of this cake topper project is that it's highly customizable. Everything from the color of the sprinkles, to the size of the letters and even the letters themselves can be personalized to work with your wedding cake.         Step 1: What you'll need: Laser cut wooden letters. These can be purchased at any crafts shop or custom made. We recommend Woodland Manufacturing. The site allows you to choose your letters, connection style, font, and height. Prices are extremely reasonable, and shipping is very fast. Popsicle sticks or wooden coffee stirs Non toxic craft glue (such as Elmer's) or glue gun Small nonpareils (sprinkles) Sweetened condensed milk Food coloring paste in color of your choice  Food-use only paintbrush   Step 2: At least one to two weeks prior to project, order custom laser-cut wooden letters here. The size you select should be based on the top tier of your cake. (Our top tier is 5" in diameter, so we selected lettering that was 2" tall and about 5" wide.)     Step 3: Put a small dab of glue on part of popsicle stick that will be attached to letters     Step 4: Glue popsicle stick or coffee stir to back of letters as centered as possible. Allow to dry.     Step 5: Mix small amount of food coloring into sweetened condensed milk. Color will intensify, so add a little at a time. The sweetened condensed milk is a foodsafe way to hide the wood and to adhere the nonpareils. Note that some of the wood color might show through.     Step 6: Use food-use only paintbrush to paint colored sweetened condensed milk all over letters.     Step 7: Over a bowl, carefully pour sprinkles onto letters. Allow to dry.     Step 8: Carefully center and insert onto top of cake.     Enjoy your gorgeous wedding cake!
