Here’s an absolutely gorgeous wedding design we created recently – a dogwood blossom wedding cake! Every single one of our cakes are hard for us to see leave us, but this one quickly became a favourite! We LOVED the elegant white tiers paired with gold Rococo touches and stunning floral choices. Beautiful large white roses, stylised 24k gold acanthus leaves, deep forest green rose leaves and gilded dogwood blossoms adorn the tiers.
Rococo Inspired Gilded Dogwood Blossom Wedding Cake
This dogwood blossom wedding cake was inspired a little by an ornate rose and stephanotis flower adorned design we created earlier on in the year. Tiers were re-arranged, the faux cake stand effect was omitted and the florals and colours were swapped over. We also concentrated more on decorative mouldings that were more leaf-influenced like the curved acanthus leaves and stylised ferns that trim the tiers.
A shallow fake tier was added between the base and middle to give the cake design a little drama and height. This was iced in a deep forest green, adorned with 24k gold acanthus mouldings and then surrounded with lots of gilded sugar dogwood blossoms, gold berries and deep green fondant leaves. The acanthus leaf mouldings were added to the separator for a touch of extra gold and texture underneath the gorgeous florals.
More height was added to the cake with some large voluminous white sugar roses that cascaded a little from the top of the smallest tier. Arranged around these blooms were 24k gold acanthus leaves, dark green rose leaves, golden berries and pretty gilded dogwood blossoms! We used wired acanthus leaves in the top arrangement of sugar flowers to help tie in the golden trims of the rest of the design, but they’re so elegant and slender that they’re perfect for adding a little extra height too.
All the elements together worked beautifully and this was definitely a cake we’d have loved to keep for ourselves! It had to fulfil it’s wedding cake destiny, however, and be the centre of attention!
