Love, love the way this bridal shower cake turned out! Layers of super light and fluffy raspberry angel food cake, and a champagne meringue buttercream. I love the meringue buttercream because it has a smooth and silky texture and it not quite as heavy as the good old American buttercream. All in all, this cake is loaded with 16 egg whites and there is no butter added to the cake itself, making it a fairly “light” bridal shower cake. After all, the bride and bridesmaids will have to look their best!
I went with a very simple and elegant look – ivory and light pink in combination with gold. It makes the cake look more sophisticated and is reminiscent of a bridal gown. I also wanted to make sure it is easy to do at home for everybody so all I used were some gold colored sugar pearls that I attached all around the cake. To achieve a kind of ombre effect, I attached more pearls at the bottom of the cake and faded them out towards the top.
