Floral Birdcage Wedding Cake!

We created this floral / English garden party themed bird cage cake with a Ladurée inspired colour palette. With the spring season fast approaching we thought added roses and cherry blossoms to the design would be perfect. Of course, it may be too early in the year to say, but we think this is one of our favourites of 2014!

The cake itself is a lovely soft lemon madeira cake filled with silky smooth lemon buttercream and covered with a white chocolate ganache. The cake is then iced in hand coloured pale pistachio green fondant before edible details are added.

Cherry Blossoms are one of our favourite florals to re-create in sugar form. They feature such wonderful petal shapes (from pinched, notched and ruffles), soft tones of pink (which add a lovely pop of colour to paler cakes) and look elegant gathered together on a Spring cake!

We hand created ivory sugar roses, rose leaves and delicate pink cherry blossoms as well as the birdcage’s scallop trims, bars and conical-esque handle. Even though this was a relatively small wedding creating it from start to finish took a total of 12 hours including baking time… phew!

Above is a close-up photograph showing the detail on the left hand side of the birdcage cake. We quilted the cake drum, studded it with shimmering ivory sugar pearls and trimmed the board with cream grosgrain ribbon.

From start to finish we loved every single element of this cake. This cake was such a wonderful way to get us in the mood for the new season.
