Flora to fawn over

January 26, 2011. Category: cake
There are some incredibly talented cake designers in the DC area but you may have found that your venue, be it hotel or country club require that you use their cake.  Some in-house bakers are amazing others, no so much.  Be sure to schedule a tasting and pick a flavor that you and your guests will like. But what about the look.  I am a huge fan of the clean simple cake with just one large sugar flower detail, like the one in the image above.  Ask the pastry chef to create a clean cake with rolled fondant and you can provide real ribbon (our favorite resource is M&J trimmings) and one big sugared flower from Global Sugar Art.  Yes, I am a micro-manager.

How sweet it is to be loved by you

Brides have a lot of freedom when deciding what type of cake to have: cake flavor, frosting flavor, fillings, color, designs, flowers, decorations — the list goes on and on. This can sometimes leave a bride stranded and hungry… for some guidance.

It may be helpful – and it certainly is fun – to simply search through online images (Flickr – We Heart It, Style me Pretty – it goes without saying) to find images that stand out to you or look particularly beautiful or delicious.

Type in “wedding cake” for a general search, or if you have a theme in mind, try something like “wedding cake sunflowers,” for example. You will soon be smiling (and trying to quiet your rumbling stomach) as images of towering cakes piled high with flowers or decorated with intricate, sugary designs fill your screen.

Choose a few that you might want to work with – perhaps you enjoy the way the sugar flowers (in shades of peach, pale yellow, and burgundy) wind around the frosted tiers, or maybe it’s the two lemons perched bright and cheerful on top that make you smile.

Whatever it is- even if it’s just one aspect of the cake you enjoy (love the flowers, hate the shape of the cake), save it and use it for inspiration later when you meet with your baker of choice. It will make it easier for him or her as well as for you as you plan one of the most fun parts of the wedding.
