Our cakes in Your Yorkshire Wedding magazine!
Though this cake design was originally inspired a ‘City Chic’ bridal shower (see the photoshoot here on our blog and also here via Ultimate Wedding Magazine) with high fashion textures and architectural references the design was also perfect for a countryside wedding. Our Rococo-inspired wedding cake lends itself well to a glamorous country venue due to the a romantic palette, carefree florals (and bees) with gorgeous historical influences.
Colour-wise this shoot was inspired by Pantone’s Colours of the Year (Rose Quartz and Serenity). The delicate ice pink and blush tones throughout the Rococo-inspired cake easily mimic the more grown-up and sophisticated pink tone that Pantone heralded as one of the Colours of the Year! Teamed with sleek whites and luxurious gold metallics this cake is a definite show piece too.
Lots of full, luxurious blooms reminiscent of country glamour adorned the shoot including full hydrangeas, sweet cherry blossoms and the ever popular eucalyptus leaves. The table centrepieces were positively filled to the brim which we love! We both absolutely love full flowers and foliage. To accompany such show-stealing florals our cupcakes featured large white magnolia blooms re-created out of sugar perched atop gold painted acanthus leaves. The cake itself had our signature sugar peonies adorning it’s tiers that each span a rather dramatic 6 inches in width! We then added some extra texture and fullness with white sugar blossoms, cupped white lilacs and pretty fondant berries!
Our gilded magnolia flower cupcakes were created as sweet and sophisticated favours / table settings. They’re iced in scalloped white fondant before being adorned with golden acanthus leaf details and voluminous sugar magnolia blooms with gold painted centres.
Finally, here’s a close-up look at the sugar flowers on our Rococo-inspired wedding cake! We create all our flowers to order and also by hand which means there’s room for tweaks and customisation. For this design we tinted our peony petals a shade or two darker than the ice pink cake to make sure that they subtly stood out, but also so that they didn’t fight too much for attention against the golden acanthus leaf frame. To soften the arrangements and give them more of a carefree or fluid feel we then added smaller blossoms, buds and berries around the focal peonies.
Thanks to all the wonderfully talented people involved in the shoot including the insanely gorgeous venue of Tanfield House! You can also now find this styled photoshoot in the latest (July) issue of Your Yorkshire Wedding magazine here!
