One of our most favorite designs is the floral heart cake inspired by Rifle Paper Co.‘s floral heart print. We first came up with the design copying the Rifle Paper colors in a previous post, but got a request to do the same cake to match the beautiful color palette of a wedding.
When Kristy sent me the color palette (navy, light pink, dark pink, and gold), I got so excited! It reminded me of something you’d find on a Kate Spade print. Plus, anything with a touch of gold automatically makes it awesome.
I loved the gold scallop cake board with it!
Detail shot. My favorite were the little gold flowers. :)
Our friends Ken and Christine got married last weekend, and we had the pleasure of making their wedding cake. There were three very specific instructions given to us for this cake: (1) it had to be navy blue, (2) it had to be chocolate with cream cheese frosting, and (3) it had to be dairy/lactose free! In all honesty, we were a little nervous about this one. Although we’re no strangers to cakes now, we had not yet been asked to do a dairy free cake for a wedding.
Cathy tried out a few recipes prior to wedding week, and the results were delicious! The cake actually was fluffier than our normal chocolate cake, and the “cream cheese” frosting tasted almost exactly like cream cheese frosting! You’d hardly know the difference! At the wedding right before the cake cutting, Ken announced to the crowd that it was a dairy free cake, and it will be the first cake Christine will have eaten in FOUR years! What a special treat!
For design, the bride and groom requested ivory sashes with bows on their cake. Here are the results!
The cake was displayed in a barrel room at a winery where guests went for a cocktail hour.
Gumpaste bows adorned the sides of the cakes to bring the sashes together.
After we had set it all up and attached the bows, the groom came over and told us, “This is exactly what we envisioned.” There’s no greater satisfaction than a client seeing their dream cake come to life! We’re so happy to have been part of their special day. Congratulations, Ken and Christine!
