Flowers and pink not part of your wedding plans? There are options, and I fully support anyone looking to do something a little different when it comes to wedding cakes. I knew going in the bride didn’t want flowers, but that still left a lot of options. I’m actually surprised by how many brides coming in talking about roses, cherry blossoms, scroll work, and silky pastel ribbons because to me, each and every bride is unique, and I feel like she would want her wedding cake to express that idea. However, I know a lot of brides see a wedding as being a traditional affair, and sticking to familiar themes can ease a lot of stress and satisfy a lot of expectations. When the color orange was uttered by the groom during this consult, I knew I was in for something fun and different.
These colors are fantastic. Sunset orange, chocolate brown, and tulip red all come together perfectly in this contemporary wedding cake. There were talks of texture and patterns, but the clean lines bring a terrific timeless feel. It should also be noted that this is a January wedding cake because the time of year your wedding takes place should never restrict your creativity and individuality. I only recently learned to make the perfect cake topping bow from a video I found online. Originally, I was using way too much ribbon, and I decided there had to be a better way. Each cake brings new challenges, and new lessons to be learned.
