I’ve done my fair share of cherry blossom cakes, but here’s a fun twist to shake up a classic design.
This was a very quick ordering process. The bride saw the cherry blossom cake in our wedding book and fell in love with it immediately. However, her colors were two shades of purple, and she wanted to incorporate that detail into the design.
Blue purple is on the rise, hitting the fashion world hard a couple years ago. Unfortunately, something big in the world of high fashion won’t make it to mass production until up to 3 years later. I’ve had to lay sheer cobalt blue ribbon over violet ribbon to get the right color for a previous order. Airbrush, on the other hand, is simply a matter of layering the right colors over each other. I combined Hawaiian Blue and Purple to get iris and Royal Blue and Purple to get more of an eggplant color. Personally, I’m a big fan of this color. I remember when coral hit 5 years ago, and 3 years later everyone was selling coral dresses, tank tops, and matching jewelry. I’m looking forward to a flood of blue purple, and I can’t wait to see what comes out next.
I love the way this cake turned out, and I hope to see the couple next year.
