Pasta and simple wedding cake fillings
The most traditional pastry for the making of wedding cakes is loaf of bread. The soft white mass combines very well with several types of fillings, from the simplest to the noblest. It is also possible to make chocolate loaf of bread, but this is not so traditional.
Another type of mass very common nowadays is the Red Velvet that gives a reddish color to the cake and presents a velvety texture. This type of dough looks very beautiful for naked cakes, or uncovered cakes, as they are also known.
Try to combine the dough with the filling and the coating. And speaking of stuffing, have you thought about this fundamental detail of the cake? Generally, wedding cakes are stuffed according to the preference of the bride and groom, but it is important to take into consideration that all the guests will eat a piece. Therefore, look for a filling that is both delicious, soft and well-liked by all.
In this line, it is possible to think of fillings based on fruits, especially strawberries, peaches or pineapple. Another very popular flavor is chocolate that can be milk or white, in which case it can also be mixed with fruits. Girl nanny, prestige and sweet milk are also delicious and simple options to make.
However, be careful with coconut or sour cream fillings, as these are ingredients that tend to spoil easily.
Types of Simple Wedding Cake Coverage
There are several types of coverage that can be used in wedding cake. However, we selected here the darlings of the moment. Check out:
The topping of whipped cream is very traditional in cakes. You can add dyes to the whipped cream to leave the cake in the color you want. The ingredient also allows you to create details with icing nozzles. Be sure to buy a whipped cream of good origin so as not to interfere with the quality of the cake.
American pasta is one of the most used toppings in wedding cakes. But it has two drawbacks: the first is that the pasta is a bit complicated to do for those who do not have a lot of skill in the kitchen, and the second is the taste, some people just hate American pasta. The coating takes sugar, glucose, colorless gelatin and glycerin.
The good side of the paste is that it allows for a smoother and more homogeneous finish to the cake, besides creating varied details. Usually it is used in the color white, but it is possible to dye it with dyes in the color that you wish.
Naked cakes are a trend and a great choice for simple and intimate weddings, as they represent well this stripped-down party spirit.
