How to make a Cake Shop Cake – Part 3: The cakes

The final part in this series is a tutorial about making the little cakes and macaron that were on the table.

Bake Shop Cake

(all gorgeous photos by Little Buttons Photography and all bad photos by me!)

Start by mixing your fondant with a hardening agent and roll your white into a high ball (this ball needs to have the height you require for your cake tiers)


Use your circle cutters to cut out the tiers and then use a knife to trim the ends (if necessary)


Attach the tiers together with some water or edible glue


Dab some water around ย the bottom of the tiers and stick some cachous balls around


Finish with a decoration on the top of the cake. You can obviously decorate the cake however you like, with whatever edible decorations you have on hand.


For the second cake, cut out 1 pink and 2 yellow circles


Stick them together and smooth out the top


Cut out a fluted circle of white (I used a pastry/scone cutter) – make sure this circle is larger than the cake circles.


Stick the white circle over the top of your cake and cut out a slice


Decorate the cake anyway you like. I have simply rolled out tiny pink circles with even smaller red circles and stuck them on the top.

10 You can see that I’ve left everything on a sheet of baking paper to dry – this means you’ll easily be able to lift them off once they have hardened.


For the macarons – simply cut out 3 circles (2 of one colour and 1 of a contrasting colour) and stick together!

I hope you’ve enjoyed these tutorials! For the first two parts, click here and here.

I’ve had a few people asking what type of cake I made, so I thought I’d show you a picture of the inside which was a coloured vanilla mud cake, torted with pink Italian Meringue Buttercream.


..and here’s a picture of my gorgeous girl with her cake!
