This is my design for next weekend’s wedding cake. I showed it to the couple yesterday and they loved it.
I plan to keep it as simple as possible. I’m going to cover it with ivory buttercream, encircle each tier with purple ribbon (purple and silver are the couple’s colors), and place a few gumpaste flowers on the tiers. The couple’s monogram will stand on top of the cake and I might put some small gumpaste flowers around it. I might also make buttercream dots on the tiers.
Here are some of my inspiration cakes:
I like the ribbons (not necessarily the bows), the monogram and the dots on this cake.
I love the gumpaste flowers on this cake! This video shows how to make them.
Love this one too! The cake stand is really pretty. I might try to find a silver mirror to display the cake on.
I like the arrangement of the flowers on this cake better than the ones on my sketch.
My plan for this weekend is to finish baking all of the tiers and try to make gumpaste flowers. I’ll let you know how it goes!
