At the moment we’re super busy working on a collection of designs to show at the Kingston-upon-Hull Guildhall Wedding Show, which is incredibly exciting albeit tiring! As we finish off our five designs we thought that we’d share some final photographs of a finished cake; our four tiered Rococo-inspired cherry blossom wedding cake…
This is easily one of our favourite designs in the collection. It is a lovely clean design with detail featuring only on the front of the cake. We created a hand quilted frame inlay of white fondant brushed with glimmering lustre dust before applying pieces of ochre coloured fondant mouldings around the edge and finally hand painting this feature with edible gold paint.
The cake displays such a rich design from just the frame-work alone that we decided to keep the florals to a minimum. Originally, we had sketched this design with roses, hydrangeas, apple blossoms and cherry blossoms; however, we finally chose to stick to simple frosted fantasy berries, sugar leaves, and hand-made ruffled pink cherry blossoms!
The little pops of bright pink from the sugar cherry blossoms add another dimension to the cake and help liven and brighten up the white and ivory tiers. Utilising a more simple floral style helps keeps the main focus of the cake on the ornate gold frame as well as keeping the ye moving up and down the design!
Our entire collection encompasses inspiration from textural fashion (sequins, ruffles, quilting) and antique French elements found in lavish interiors (such as mouldings, scroll-work, and hand painted gold and silver touches). We’re, our course, excited to reveal the remaining cakes from the collection so keep checking back for more news and photographs!
