Wedding Au Natural

What I like most about this cake is how it is not perfect yet beautiful. One of the guests commented how the cake looks like it was made of stone. I think of it as a sculpture too. The flowers are frangipani made of gumpaste. I then hand painted them in the colors the bride and groom wanted. The branches are made out of floral wire and covered in brown floral tape. This was my first request for an imperfect cake. I hope more clients will see that a smooth icing finish can be just as stunning as a rough one.

Floating Tiers

This cake was a white chocolate mousse filled white cake. I used white chocolate fondant to cover these cakes and piped a design with royal icing. Some red fondant flowers were added for fun. I enjoyed this cake because it was my first floating tiers wedding cake.
