This was my chance to tackle a wedding cake theme increasing in popularity.
This is a mostly faux cake for a bride on a very tight budget, and the design was based solely on the handle of the cake server the bride had already purchased.
I used strips of acrylic gemstones attached to ribbon to make the borders. The icing is buttercream with silver dragees for the details. The topper was the heaviest part of the cake and was provided by the bride. I apologize for the very blurry photo. My camera battery died as I was taking this photo. I now keep an extra charger in the bakery, but there are dozens of wedding cakes and specialty cakes I don’t have photos of mostly due to shortage of time.
