This white chocolate envelope wedding cake is a super chic cake design by one of the UK’s premier chocolatiers, Nicky Grant. The combination of the white chocolate cake with soft pink fresh roses make this a beautiful wedding centrepiece for a summer wedding.To re-create this cake style, white chocolate couverture is used to make panels for each side of the cake and then the corners are overlaid with triangles of white chocolate to create the “envelope” effect. For beginners, chocolate cocoform may be easier to work with to create this “envelope” effect and you’ll find a tutorial from The Cake Makery Sugarcraft School here on how to make chocolate cocoform yourself.
Eric Lanlard of Cake Boy fame also features a white chocolate envelope style cake in his book, Glamour Cakes: Exquisite Designs for Every Occasion, that features fresh black cherries around each of the tiers.
Whether you’re using fresh fruit or fresh flowers, this cake design makes a great alternative to white chocolate cigarellos for the cake covering.
