Raspberry White Chocolate Ganache Wedding Cake

We had the pleasure of welcoming Nicole into the family on the weekend.  She married my Uncle Tom in a lovely ceremony followed by a fabulous reception.  
The happy couple asked me to create a wedding cake for them.
This Raspberry White Chocolate Ganache cake tasted even better than it looked.
I made a three tier, white pound cake.  It was really moist and rich.  
I used apple sauce instead of oil in the recipe.
The entire cake was covered in white butter cream frosting.  I would have liked to use fondant but simply ran out of time and confidence.  I’ve only worked with fondant once.
The flowers were made out of tissue paper.  I cut out four layers for each flower and glued them to toothpicks.  I really like the delicate look that they give the cake.  I poked the flowers into the cake just before the cake was to be served and viewed.
The wedding day turned out to be a scorcher and my icing was actually melting on the way to the hall.  The flowers helped to hide a few of the trouble spots.
 Each layer had a raspberry, white chocolate ganache filling.  It took a bit of experimenting to get the right consistency.  I spread out a layer of raspberry pie filling then topped with a layer of white chocolate ganache.  My chocolate to cream ratio was 250 g white chocolate to 1/2 cup of whipping cream.  I found a great article at the Big Bake Theory {love the blog name} that was super helpful.
 I was happy with this simple, pretty cake.
 And got rave reviews on the taste! Yum.
The gorgeous couple, cutting the cake.
Welcome to the family Aunt Nicole!

    It turned out FAB, Heather! The flowers look perfect 🙂 No doubt you needn’t have lacked confidence- anything you put your hand toward seems to turn out awesome! Glad to see you had a fun vacay too 🙂 We are headed out on a couple of camping trips in the next week or so- sure hope I have time to make some shirts for my own boys like you did awhile back for yours! What’s up for you guys the rest of the summer? 🙂 Have an awesome rest of the week!
