I had accompanied a good friend to her bridal fitting and had the chance to talk to her gown designer who happened to be looking for a wedding cake. She wanted a grand looking cake with flowers. So I designed a 5 tier fondant cake with fresh flowers and crystals to match her gown. Topped with a custom crystalised initials of the bride and groom, I think this should be grand enough and won’t be dwarfed by the opulent stage decor.
This cake unleashed the florist in me and I enjoyed putting up the flowers. The crystals were a pain though. They had to be individually stuck onto the ribbon and there is A LOT of crystals, not to mention the crystal studded intials as a cake topper.
But I’m sure this looks better than most hotels’ fake wedding cake:)
