Pink and White Wedding Cake

A lovely pink and white wedding cake that I decorated for Flur Bakery's client. As much as I love decorating whimsical cakes, it's so nice to do something elegant and more traditional once in awhile.

The top tier was done in swiss dots out of sugar pearls and the bottom tier was piped in a style that the bride picked with tiny pink blossoms.

Cinderella's Slipper Cake

This was the first cake I decorated for Flur Bakery back in July and forgot to post. This sweet little girl loves Cinderella and wanted a special cake for her 4th birthday that included her favorite saying: "A dream is a wish your heart makes."

We designed the cake to echo Cinderella's blue gown with ribbons, bows and pearls. The pumpkin "coach" houses the birthday girl's age and the glass slipper made of gumpaste and edible glitter tops the cake.

Large Rosette Winter Wedding Cake

I'm officially in love with this new technique... the large rosette. I used this technique on a birthday cake (post coming soon) and just love how it looks. I needed to do a winter wedding cake for Flur Bakery's display window so I just had to do this again.

I cant take credit for coming up with this beautiful technique, it's a popular trend for wedding cakes on the internet and I also got a few pointers from my friend Chelsea from pastry school who had done a few cakes this way. It's pretty advanced technique, but once I got it down, it became easier.

I did the rosettes in a pink ombre-which is a fancy term for using a few hues of the same color from light to dark or dark to light. Here I did pink rose center, to a light pink, to an even lighter pink/ivory outer petals. I also wanted the cake to glitter like ice, so I encrusted the two middle tiers entirely in sanding sugar and dusted with edible glitter. Its hard to tell from the photo, but they are pretty sparkly.

Sugar pearls and silver dragees encircle the two middle tiers for added interest. Here is how she looks in Flur's window.
