We made this wedding cake for a lovely couple, Simone & Rich, who got married at the Horticultural Center last week. All of the flowers were provided by the amazing florist Sullivan Owen, who helped me arrange them on site.
What really makes this cake unique are the 100% edible and delicious candied rose petals that we prepared at the bakery. I had some last-minute inspiration and added crushed candied petals to the cake stand as well. Here you see the cake before Sullivan and I added the fresh flowers.
A detail shot of the finished cake. The flavor was almond pound, with raspberry jam and passion fruit buttercream. Wowsers.
Here’s a look at the cake before we added any petals. I really like the rustic buttercream texture.
Here’s the original sketch concept I made for the cake. Congratulations to Simone & Rich! We had so much fun making your wedding cake. Special thanks to Christiane Lehman of Truly You Events and Ashley Gay of Starr Events for help with planning.
