The world is mad for art deco decadence and glamour at the moment with the release of The Great Gatsby. I had the pleasure of creating this cake for Little Sooti who was exhbiting her beautiful styling at the Melbourne Bride Wedding Expo this weekend. Art deco inspired.. rich emerald green with gold and sparkling black sugar jewels. Opulent, decadent and very Gatsby.
I was very excited to have the opportunity to work with Thetis of Little Sooti on this wedding in February. I’ve long admired her work and its always a joy to collaborate with a talented stylist on a gorgeous event.
A towering creation for a peacock themed wedding featuring hand painted peacock plumes.
Bessie & George’s Valentine wedding cake featuring hearts, of course, and a ruffleliscious bottom tier. Their wedding was set in the country in an amazing setting with elements of vintage chic, hobo and lots and lots of love from family and friends…a truly romantic affair.
I’ve wanted to ruffle up a cake for a while now. I first saw these gorgeous ruffles done by Sydney’s Yummy Cupcakes and Cakes -inspired by a Vera Wang wedding gown. Fondant couture. Sigh.
Congratulations Bessie & George!
Gorgeous peonies and glistening silver leaf create a stunning effect for this sophisticated wedding cake for the lovely Mikaela and Matt.
Two double barrel tiers – the bottom gilded with edible silver leaf and the top finished off with a pearl lustre – highlighted by the peachy watermelon tones of hand made sugar peonies. Top tier – Lemon butter cake with a lemon scented white chocolate ganache, bottom tier is vanilla butter cake with a raspberry swirl filled with white chocolate ganache.
These were created for a vintage wedding… cupcakes and cookies. I was actually surprised at how long these took! Very labor intensive but the results were well worth it. Roses, piped lace and blossoms. Sigh…
I’m not usually contacted for figurines… I had a call from a lovely bride to be who wanted me to make a bunny and a bear to adorn the top of her wedding cake. Sure, no problem!
It seems like ages since I’ve done a wedding cake, lately all my orders have been for children’s cakes – which I love doing – but I’ve missed the towering tiers of a wedding cake!
