The cake I designed this week was small and unfussy...but challenging due to its simplicity and clean lines. My kind and lovely bride wanted just enough cake for a small, intimate gathering of her family and friends. She had planned a Sunday morning wedding at the beach, followed by brunch on the patio of a beautiful venue...and requested dark chocolate cake hidden beneath ivory colored buttercream. She also knew she loved Phalaenopsis orchids and was hoping I could incorporate a few of them and some simple greenery into the design.
Here are the sugarpaste orchids and leaves while they are drying:
And the orchids once dusted and painted:
And dusting colors for the leaves:
And some photos of the final cake!
Congratulations to my lovely bride and her groom! It was such a pleasure to be a part of their wonderful celebration!
