Parisian wedding cake with sugar Juliet roses

We all have favourite flowers and for me it’s the Juliet Rose. Though I’m not a fan of roses (but appreciate their beauty) there’s something striking about the odd centres and peachy/coral tones of this particular rose. When designing this Parisian influenced cake design I thought the peach and coral tones of this rose would be the perfect fit to pair with this French blue and gold cake which was enjoyed at an intimate celebratory affair.

Art Deco Wedding Cake

Black and white is nice contrast to add pops of color. This five tier wedding cake with hexagon shaped tiers was adorned with art deco architectural elements , sugar peonies, roses, hydrangeas and orchids in shades of bright pink and purple. This cake was a lovely fit for a wedding in a classic  theatre venue.

Inspired by Color Blocking

         One of my favorite trends in fashion this year is the come back of color blocking. This bold and contemporary use of blocks of unusual blends of color is very eye catching. For this design I decided to incorporated a geo type patterns and soften the look by accessorizing it with a magnolia sugar flower.

Today we have dreamy peach and coral with chevron inspiration shoot designed by wedding planner and designer Crystal Adair-Benning of Distinct Occasions and photographed by the talented  Tyler James Photography. For the design of the cake I created a hand painted chevron cake with sparkly gumpaste flowers of shades of silver, coral, peach, and orange. I love how gorgeous this whole look came togather.

Gold Picture Frame Wedding Cake

I’d love to say it’s all smiles when designing one of a kind cakes but I can be very hard on myself sometimes when making a wedding cake. The artistic battle in my head is challenging me to create the best possible design that’s uniquely fit to the couple. Taking that dreamed up sketch of a concept that I haven’t done before and making it in a 3d decadent cake without missing one element can be a challenge but it’s so worth it when seeing the results. What I’ve found works best for me as a designer is being allowed the creative freedom to tweak the cake with the goal being to make it the ultimate wedding cake for the couple.

This cake had a few tweaks. The major one being I added the multi mini frames as the borders, thinking it would be cute for the talented photographer/bride. The sugar flowers inspired by the floral designs of Sweet Woodruff . I also felt the cake required an additional tier to best balance the decorative features of the flowers, crown topper and frame border so it went from three tiers  to four. I think my favorite part about this cake is the colors and seeing it fit perfectly with the decor of the wedding at Arcadian Court.
