pearls on wedding cakes
Things are still all a bloom around here thanks to a nice combination of April showers and warm, sunny days.
Which means I’m still looking for wedding cakes adorned with fresh flowers because they’re absolutely perfect for spring weddings.
This four-tier square wedding cake is elegant and simple and has a fresh feel about it.
The square tiers give the cake a modern feel, while the pearl icing embellishments add just the right amount of elegance.
And you can’t go wrong with fresh cattleyas for a floral addition.
Of course if you aren’t a fan of that flower you can always adorn your cake with a flower that matches your bouquet – giving your wedding cake an extra personal touch.
You can find this spring floral wedding cake here.
I’ve been writing a lot about the use of fresh flowers on wedding cakes and how much I love the trend.
Heck I even used fresh Black Magic Roses and greenery on my own wedding cake more than a decade ago.
Fresh flowers just never go out of style (in my humble opinion).
But, instead of using the whole flower, consider for a moment using just the petals from those fresh flowers – just like this cake. Read More
There are gorgeous, take-your-breath-away wedding cakes.
And then there’s today’s wedding cake which goes beyond leaving one breathless.
This cake is downright stunning.
The four-tier “novelty cushion wedding cake” is another amazing creation from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom.
The cake’s intricate and delicate pattern was based on the bride’s wedding dress Read More
As we’re heading into the week of celebrating all things love and Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share a cake with you that was so romantic it would make you swoon on the spot.
I’m pretty sure this is the cake.
This gorgeous four-tier creation is from Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom and they call it the “Blenheim Cake.”
This cake is all about romance and flowers and love, and I adore everything about it.
I love the square tiers on this cake – I’m a big fan of non-traditional shapes when it comes to wedding cakes. (This should come as no surprise, since my wedding cake featured eight heart-shaped tiers!) I think the square tiers give it a nice, modern contemporary feel.
The gorgeous and simple white icing with the pearls around each tier give this cake a dramatic and modern look.
But what I love most is the cascade of flowers down the side of the cake. The bride wanted the flowers to replicate her bouquet – which is a genius idea in my book! Hockleys created these flowers with hand crafted white, pink, and violet sugar roses and other dainty buds.
It’s incredibly romantic, don’t you think?
A big thanks to Hockleys Cakes for sharing this creation with us!
