Default Rotisserie Wedding Cake

Hey Q fans,

Below is an entry I prepared for the special Zero Throwdown. I thought some others here in the big swimming pool might enjoy seeing some quality cake pRon as well.

For this special Zero contest, I felt I needed to pull out all the stops and prepare a recipe that I had long been considering: rotisserie wedding cake. I have always been a proponent of cooking everything via rotisserie, so this would be a good way to put my cooking mettle to the test. As an honorary double entrant in the Zero Club, clearly my cooking credentials were on the line here.

As this was a first attempt, I did not start completely from scratch, but instead focused on form and getting a nice smoky finish on the wedding cake.

I figured the cake might need some reinforcement, so I gave it a foil garter belt of sorts. That would also prevent the government from hearing the cake’s thoughts. Toothpicks were added to help better attach the happy couple to the cake.







Here they are all iced up and ready for the big moment:





I thought I would go with a nice indirect heat using a mix of charcoal and almond wood. Well, it turned out that despite keeping a modest fire, the cake cooked a bit faster than anticipated, which can be seen in this video: http://youtu.be/--biih-h8eM

Things didn't go well. Quickly.



I may need to modify the recipe a bit as the happy couple only made it a couple revolutions. I was able to salvage it into something that was assuredly a mighty tasty dessert with quite a variety of colors and textures.

This was my entry shot:


Admittedly there are better things to cook on a rotisserie than wedding cakes, but I am still cautiously optimistic that with some recipe tweaks I may have a winner here.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Phrasty!

Denser cake--great suggestion. I'll put that on the list for future improvements. I am confident that as a group we can come up with the best rotisserie wedding cake ever.

I'm curious how the cake tasted with the smoke flavor? I bet it was delicious. The only thing that could have been better is if you would have added ........... bacon

What did you really expect when you hired General Tso to cater your wedding?
