Amy Atlas is the queen when it comes to styling and designing Dessert and Sweet tables. When I was offered the opportunity to contribute to her popular dessert blog, I could not refuse. I’ve designed many cakes, but with this being my first sweet table , I wanted it to be still scream “Caketress”. Fashion plays a huge roll in a lot of my designs. Mainly because I used to dream of being a fashion designer, and though it didn’t pan out for me, I like to combine my two dream careers to make edible fashions that represents my couples personal style. So with out a doubt I knew my very first sweet table would have hints of couture.
I enlisted the help of Cindy Johnson of Platinum Events Group to do her magic on styling and Taylor Jackson Photography to capture my couture sweet table. Cindy and I agreed the look should be soft with greys and whites to make it look almost dreamy. A perfect palette for an elegant winter wedding in which I would love to do again. However our choice of color palette made it a challenge to find uncolorful candy. So with scouting the city neutral candy and creating lace frill cupcakes, lavender meringue ruffles and french macaroons by Enchanted Sweets , the color palette turn pulled through beautifully. Our lovely model bride wore Vera Wang gown and had a Fuscia Designs floral bouquet as precious arm candy. The soft and feminine calligraphy by Calligraphy by Diane gave the finished look to this fabulous team creative. Check out the feature on the Amy Atlas Blog.
A trio of grey and white wedding cakes addorned with lace and ruffles made a starting point to this designed dessert table.
I wanted to stay away from the expected plateaus and stands for the some of the malted chocolate pearls, rock sugar crystals, pumpkin cupcakes and French macaroons. Instead I placed them in jewelry boxes to tie in with the chic dressed look.Love the glittery broach on on the bouquet!
Forgot how much fun making meringues can be.
Make sure to check out the amazing team who made this look happen!
