Posted by on Aug 3, 2013 in Cake Decorating | Comments


Ah, beautiful pastel colors mixed with lush florals — soft and pretty and peachy and pink. Pale robin’s egg blue, mint greens and creams — perfect color palettes for romantic wedding cakes or adorable baby shower cakes. Pretty pastel cakes seem here to stay!

Lush pink flowers with gold cake:

This beautiful cake has such delicate-looking lush pastel pink rose and peony blooms (learn to make beautiful flowers like these in Nicholas Lodge’s Classic Sugar Flowers class!) This color scheme of  pastel pink, shimmering gold and wedding white, speckled with tiny dots of gold is perfect for a feminine and ornate wedding.

Peachy keen gradient frill cake:

This two-tiered square-shaped peach ombré cake frills its way up the top so gently and seemingly easily. Offset by a spectacular orange sugar rose and dark green leaves. Created by Craftsy member SaraJean as a project completed during Maggie Austin’s Fondant Frills class.

Graphic lines and flowers cake:

This modern looking purple and green cake was made by Craftsy member Irina Salazar. Love the mauve purple graphic cut fondant lines on the bottom tier and the gorgeous green chevron lines effect on the top tier. The modernity of the cake is offset by the romantic touch of the pretty handcrafted sugar flowers. In her class, Clean & Simple Cake Design, instructor Jessica Harris demonstrates how to create this unique type of sugar flower.

Curly ruffles and eggs cake:

Such a fun and whimsical cake number — love those curly-cue ruffles all bunched together in an awesome ombré pattern. Perched on the top tier is a little nest of sugar eggs. A great cake for a bird-themed bridal shower, and a gorgeous cake for an Easter celebration or wedding.

Gold dusted pink ruffle cake:

Craftsy member kate6207 rocked out with this gorgeous tiered confection. The paper-thin pink ruffle fondant frills remind me of cotton candy. This pretty cake would be the highlight of any super feminine bridal shower or ballerina-themed birthday party.

Gorgeous peach and teal cake:

Wow, I am really blown away by Craftsy member ModernLovers’ awesome cake projects! Super talented and original spins on her cake designs, including this little beauty featured here — peach colored fondant with lace appliqué border and that gorgeous pop of color — a tropical looking teal fantasy flower with a golden acorn center. And that cake stand is nothing to scoff at. Don’t you love how a cake stand can really add an extra display element to a cake?

Modern vintage chic flower burst cake:

Don’t you love this beautiful pale peach square tiered cake with the cascade of chic flowers bursting like an absolutely luxe fur shawl? I like the little green fantasy flowers that look so much like succulent cacti. Great color palette on this cake, perfect and enviable for a modern floral wedding. I think it’s the square tiers that give this cake its modern feel. What do you think?

Ivory lace and shabby-chic blooms cake:

Isn’t this a unique shabby-chic little beauty? Love the lace overlay and the pale pastel cluster of shabby-chic ruffly roses. Sara Jean displayed this cake on a wooden cake stand and wrapped her cake with a few strands of twine to complete the look.

    Hi Craftsy,

    I would like to point out a slight error here in your article. With regards to the descriptions of the cake under Graphic lines and flowers cake, the flowers on the cake are taught by Jessica in her Clean and Simple Design Cakes, not Jacqueline as printed above.

    See, some people do read your articles with great interest! LOL!!

    Thanks!

    Warmest regards from a good Craftsy student ;-)
