Keeping with the holiday spirit, we have another beautiful winter wedding cake today. The entire wedding was white and silver with hints of burgundy. I know what you are thinking, how glorious! The bride and her mother transformed this ballroom into a snowy wonderland, each table was decorated with a silver tree adorned with snowflakes, crystals and rhinestones. Entering the ballroom transported the guests to a frosted dream without the chill, of course.
For the cake, we dreamt up a white Christmas. Four tiers covered in sleek white fondant, the cake was then airbrushed in a gradient of silvery sheen. Hand-cut rice paper snowflakes and piped pearls delicately floated down the cake into a cluster of ribbon ruffles. I just love how this cake turned out. It reminds me of the great outdoors during a snowstorm. Have you ever noticed how still and quiet it gets when the snow falls? ”All is calm, all is bright.”
Here are a few more shots of all the pretty details of this cake. One of my favorite details is the rhinestone monogram adorning the top like a star on a tree.
Here’s dreaming of a white Christmas, may they all be merry and bright.
The holidays are just around the corner. If you need just a little more festive cheer, look no further this cake is sure to put a grin on your face and a twinkle in your eye. This cake was made for a wedding at the end of the summer, but I am reminded by the holidays because of the metallic bronze tiers and the soft white overlay of rice paper flowers. I love all the gold and white at Christmas time, there is nothing prettier than a tree decorated with white lights and just gold ornaments. Here we have just that gold and white, a beautiful, classic combination.
The bride is a florist, as you can imagine there were flowers everywhere at this wedding. During the design process, a lot of the photos of cakes that the bride sent me for inspiration had flowers in them. I wanted to be sure that the flowers were a major part of her cake, because if anyone loves flowers it would be a florist.
There has been a trend in making flowers out of rice paper, these flowers are so pretty, delicate and create texture. For the final design, I created a cake with the paper flowers cascading down the side of the cake, swagged pearls on top of an airbrushed metallic cake and a tier completed covered in the flowers.
Believe it or not these flowers are much more easy to make than gum paste sugar flowers and the results just as impressive. There is no rolling out, forming or drying time, just cut and stick! I love how Shay Thomason captured them in these photos.
I was so honored to make this cake for the couple and am happy to add it to my collection.
