This ocean themed wedding cake was made with inspiration from a beautiful happy couple who just got married last weekend. The story behind this funny edible wedding cake topper is that the real newlyweds met when they were very young children and their parents put them in a bath together. Since then they’ve known each other for years and having bath together as little kids is a very touching and special memory for them.
This is a one tier ocean themed cake covered with marshmallow fondant. It may look a little simple but the idea behind it is the ocean theme. You can’t really put many details on the ocean cake.
I wanted this cake to be nice, warm, calm and very romantic. That is why I added some fondant dolphins and fondant seagulls. For the first time I’ve used very thing wire to lift the fondant birds up and make a real 3D effect in the air. I think such cake decorating ideas help to create something very real and amazing.
To add a little extra special and romantic detail to this ocean themed wedding cake I made a few white marshmallow fondant roses to decorate the ocean cake all the way around.
Inside it was a madeira cake with two layers of caramel filling and roasted walnuts. I find madeira cake recipe one of the best for the cakes to be decorated, especially if you need to cut any shape madeira cake is really good. It has a quite firm structure and doesn’t break and crumble that much.
It would be a sweet cake for a couple of sweethearts with a very special touch from their memories together.
