Lots of colour on a cake is always eye-catching, but we absolutely adore sleek white on white designs. This white semi-naked cake for a Christening is the perfect example of how white can make any design super dazzling! Smothered with whitened buttercream and edged with a white shimmer sequin drip this cake instantly says modern elegance.
The drip was created out of white chocolate which still has a yellow cream tone to it. Because of this we hand-painted it with a bright white lustre from Squires Kitchen. Usually our sequin drips come in a glistening gold, rose gold, copper or silver. It was refreshing to see a subtle glimmering white working its way down the side.
The pretty florals on this cake were from the lovely staff at The Orange Grove in Hessle who we visit on a regular basis for all our semi-naked designs. We used large bloom white roses paired with beautiful ombré peach roses with creamy yellow petals. To add a more rustic and quirky greenery we including sprigs of feathery rosemary along with a little thyme nestled into the cake.
White semi-naked cake!
Alongside the cake we also whipped up lots of peach tinted Strawberry Milkshake cupcakes for guests to enjoy! These cupcakes featured a pale peach coloured buttercream swirl, white Belgian chocolate drizzle and sugar pearls to match the cake.
We also adorned the top of this pretty little number with golden macarons filled with Strawberry Milkshake ganache. We then added a flurry of sugar pearls including larger blush pink sprinkles, tiny white pieces and extra small golden dragées by the fabulous Fancy Sprinkles (we LOVE their fun range!).
The gorgeous white on white palette for the cake itself really helps set off the lovely botanical-like colours from the florals, which we love. We’re definitely looking forward to lots more sleek white semi-naked cakes this year!
