Since my hours at work have increased,
many of my projects have been put on hold.
But I wanted to share a wedding cake
that I made a couple of weekends ago
for a friend of the family.
This bride requested the cake be frosted chocolate
rather than the traditional white.
She stayed away from alot of heavy
frosting garlands and borders.
Instead, she requested ribbon be
wrapped around the bottom of each tier--
royal blue (the color of her bridemaids dresses)
set against a wider white ribbon
made the color pop.
Fresh wild flowers,
to match the brides bouquet,
were arranged between the center cake tiers,
as well as the cake topper bouquet,
was made of deep blue delphiniums,
orange miniature orchids & zinnias
and white chrysanthemums (chosen instead of
daisies as it was felt they were a hardier flower
and would hold up better).
The bridemaids carried bundles of deep orange gladiolas,
so to incorporate this to the cake table, petals from the glads were sprinkled randomly -encircling the cake.
