Take two boxes of Duncan Hines red velvet cake mix and prepare the batter. Next sprinkle the cake pan with flour to prevent them from sticking. Pour the batter into the pan 3/4 of the way. The cake rises and you can not fill the pan to the top or it will overflow! Pour the extra batter into a small pan. The cakes take around 35 minutes to bake. Check if the cake is ready by sticking a toothpick in the center of each cake. It should come out clean. Once ready let the cakes cool.
Cut each tier and then frost them with the Cake Mate icing. Warm the icing for 5 seconds to melt it, making it easier to spread the frosting evenly with the spatula. Now your ready to cover it with fondant!
Open the ready rolled white fondant and knead it until it's soft. Then coat your counter and roller with confectionary sugar to prevent it from sticking. Once you've rolled out the fondant place it on top of the individual cakes. Flatten the top with your fondant smoother then push the sides in. Cut off the excess with a sharp knife. Tuck the fondant under and mold it in place. Squeeze icing in between the cakes and layer them on top of each other. The hard work is done!
Now is when the fun begins. Start by dotting icing on the ribbon and stick it around each layer.
Design each cake to your desired style.
Bow Wrapped Cake with Bride and Groom Cutout:
Separate fondant into little pieces and roll them into balls. Glue them on with icing onto the cake. Take a piece of ribbon, make a bow, and stick it onto the middle tier. Now, top it off with the bride and groom cutout. Take your plate and cut out the bride and groom. Scotch tape a toothpick behind the cutout and stick in the center top tier!
Quilted Pearl Champagne Rose Cake:
Make the quilted texture by taking a toothpick and indenting the sides one diagonal at a time. Once done, stick a pearl sprinkle into each corner. Now, take a small piece of fondant and twirl it into a rose. After, spray them with red food color spray and let dry. Finally, stick the champagne bottle on with icing.
Sparkling Engagement Ring Cake:
Dot icing around each tier and glue on each diamond. Now, insert the diamond ring and you're done!
