Since the Fall season has begun I thought I would post this Fall looking cake. The 3 tiers had a vine design with fresh flowers in shades of gold,orange and bronze. The bride and groom bears proved to be a little heavy to be used as a topper so I baked a small chocolate cake (a 6″) and added a real wooden stump for the cake to set on.
The design for this cake came from a picture the bride gave to me. Something she saw in a magazine. We made a few minor changes just to make it special for her. She loved the sunny yellow with the white design work.Fresh white lilies were added on the top.
Do you remember the “PEZ” containers that had candy in them? I do.
This couple found these and thought they would make a nice topper for their cake. Not sure if they are the REAL thing but I agree, they are cute and different. They also chose the wave and vine design with a red ribbon wrapped around each tier with a few fresh flowers.
It can’t get much simpler than this, daisy mums cascading down the cake but I think the effect is quite pretty. This type of flowers is not expensive and comes in many colors- yellows, lavender and more.
When you have a very bold color for your wedding colors it works best to use that color on your cake with flowers or ribbon as I have done here.The ribbon color here is Sangria. Sometimes icing colors when very deep especially when using butter cream frosting may tend to “bleed” into the surrounding icing making it not so pretty.
