A Black, White, and Hot Pink Wedding
October was insanely busy. The second wedding of the month was a good friend who wanted a striking wedding cake based on a cake from Cake Chester in Great Britain. She wanted the flowers to be hot pink and I was happy to oblige. I hadn't done a whole lot in gum paste but it was a lot of fun to make the flowers.
First thing was the cake itself. It was a nice wedding white (made with sour cream and almond extract for a very tasty and firm cake). I tried various filling ideas but she just wanted plain buttercream. Well, I can certainly do that! The cake served almost 180 people and was a real hit.
The top photo is that of the wedding cake I made, the second cake is the one that I Photoshopped pink flowers onto from Cake Chester Bakery, the third is a closeup of the cake base with flowers before it was assembled, and the last is one my husband took of me making flowers. I'm glad the bride and groom had a wonderful cake for a very special day!
