5 Tiers with Rings

28 Sep

Hester Wedding Cake

I’m not sure what to name this cake design so i’ll  just call it “rings”. The bride found a picture for the inspiration for this cake. I’m not sure who came up with the original idea, i hope i did it justice. It was very labor intensive with all the different ring sizes and dots. I thought it looked a little plain with no ornament or flowers but the customer was pleased with how it turned out and that’s what counts. The flavors were classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. The reception was held at the Fair Barn in Pinehurst.The black and white theme was very striking . The fresh flowers  by a  Charlotte florist (sorry i don’t have their name) Flowers at reception were both beautiful and colorful for the B&W theme.     table setup

A Shower of Blue

Bridal Shower

 This was a fun cake to do. Since it was a square (10″) I decided to make it look like a gift box for the bridal shower. I iced the top in blue, and  used a large rose tip to create a band around the top edge to make it look like a box lid.  The sides i iced in white with blue swirls. The bow and tiny blue flowers are fondant, the white roses are butter cream. Flavors were marble cake with raspberry butter cream filling and vanilla frosting.

Green is THE color

Here we are again with the  green hydrangea for the wedding cake flowers and its also square but on this cake we also added a few white roses. The green color really seems to be a trend these days. The flavors were classic butter cake with vanilla butter cream. The design was a simple dot with a monogram D on top.Hamrick wedding cake The reception was held at the Hampton Inn in Southern Pines.
