Wedding of the past




This is a cake I made for my friends' wedding in August of 08. She sent me the photos yesterday (photographer Andrew Goodwin) so that is why they are being put up now. Suzie and Thomas (the bride and groom) wanted something simple but elegant so this is what I came up with. The design was inspired by a cake on the cover of the Bakers Journal done by Bonnie Gordon. The wedding colours were white and charcoal so I decided to transition the blossoms from light to dark as they cascaded down the cake. I made almost 200 hydrangea blossoms and each was dusted with pearl, silver, or black edible powder to give them a soft look. Enjoy!
