Confession: I didn't have a cake at my wedding. Instead, we went for a dessert buffet that was entirely chocolate-themed, and that worked for us. But, that meant that we didn't get to have anything as beautiful as these wedding cakes commanding our guests' attention. I love using fresh flowers on wedding cakes - we can use them to create such gorgeous designs and bring depth and life to a cake table. Here are some of my favourites!
This one is hands-down my favourite: a simple cake design accented by an amazing amount of florals. This floral wreath at the base of the cake is absolutely stunning: peonies, pieris, frittilaria, roses, lisianthus, scabiosa, and bleeding heart. I seriously want to do a floral wreath at the base of EVERY. SINGLE. WEDDING. CAKE.
Christine combined this cute calligraphy-inspired cake topper with a floral accent. Ivy stems, a spotlight garden rose, a few ranunculus blooms, and some baby's breath perfectly tied together her bridal bouquet, centrepieces and the cake!
I LOVE a good buttercream cake. Touches of floral accent the tiers of this simple buttercream cake in a sweet, simple way that also brought a bold pop of colour.
Emily from Feast & Festivities had a fantastic vision for this baby shower cake. It was dripping in yellow (white) chocolate and Kayla from Laugh Love Cakes added fresh orange ranunculus and red alstroemeria with plenty of foliage to create a fun, vibrant, and kid-friendly design. I loved it!
This wedding had an elegant feel, so I really liked working with High Tea Bakery to add these floral touches to a buttercream cake. Marsala toned roses with touches of blue eryngium and blush spray roses created a really pretty effect!
I LOVE this sweet display of naked cakes (that's what it's called when there isn't a ton of icing on the cake...see? They're naked!). Kayla from Laugh Love Cakes baked up this beautiful assortment of cakes and all I did was leave her a bunch of flowers and greenery to play with. I love that each is a little different!
