Purple Stripes and a Tuxedo

Posted by Jennifer at 9:06 PM
Sarah contacted me a while back about her upcoming wedding. She wanted an elegant but simple wedding cake that matched her purple and white themed wedding. Sarah saw a beautiful cake done by Cakegirls (one of my favorites) and fell in love with its design so we modeled this one after their deisng. We decided to have the cakes each be 6 inches tall to give it more character and had the stripes in varying shades of purple painted with luster dust. The cake was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant and there were two tiers of White Almond Cake (almond flavored cake layered with cream cheese frosting and chopped almonds) along with one layer of Emerald City Cake (light-pistachio flavored cake tinted green and layered with buttercream and pistachio cream filling). Once assembled, Sarah provided the beautiful birds on the top of the cake that kissed (so cute!) and I added a few peonies.


Sarah also wanted a Groom's cake for her now-husband that was based on an inside joke they share. This was meant to look as much like a tuxedo as possible. The collar stood up and the bow-tie was also 3-D. The flower matched the peonies on the main wedding cake. This was an 8-inch square Mocha Java Cake (chocolate cake layered with coffee buttercream) covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The collar and bow-tie were also made out of marshmallow fondant. Here's another shot of the cake for you.

Yes, as a lucky wedding invitee, I had the pleasure of both admiring and eating that wedding cake. It was awesome! That was the best cake I have had in, well, possibly forever. Thanks for helping make Sarah and Mike's day so very special.
