A Very Modern Wedding Cake!

Posted by Jennifer at 9:26 PM
Ashley was a very brave bride who wanted something a little more modern than most wedding cakes I've done. Okay... a lot more modern than most of my wedding cakes :) This square cake was different heights for each tier and the cakes were not centered (on purpose, of course!). She showed me a pattern that she was using in the wedding of these black and white flowers and so I came up with a few sketches. I mimicked those black and white flowers in the design and then brought in 2 much larger flowers for pops of color.

The couple ordered Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Cup Cake, Tuxedo Cake, and Almond Joy Cake. It's all covered in marshmallow fondant and then I hand painted the black and white flowers. For the larger flowers, I used different sized round cutters, created petals by carving out pieces of the flower and then used a pattern tracing wheel to create the lines in each petal. When I painted the flowers (one in teal and one in red), the grooves of the pattern tracing wheel created deeper colors than the flower itself, which I loved! I made a rounded yellow center and then used round piping tips to create a pattern on the centers as well.

Thank you, Ashley, for trusting me with your vision!! :) I loved making this cake!

Hello! Awesome cake, I love the "different" design, I bet you are always looking forward to a cake like this.
I have a question for you, how do you make the fondant look sharp on the edges and corners (as opposed to rounded)? Do you put a square piece on the top first and then wrap the sides or do you use some other technique?
Thanks for sharing ypur work, I make cakes in Cape Coral FL but I am just getting started and I admire your work.
