Romantic Sugar Flower Wedding Cake

Brianna and Matt’s romantic sugar flower wedding cake by The Mischief Maker. Brianna had a beautiful color palette assembled, ranging from a peachy pink all the way to purple, blush pinks, and dusky plum. People may believe that you need to have only washed out pale colors for something to be romantic, but I disagree. By including the darker shadows and tones, you really achieve a fully rounded out and romantic color palette. Brianna said she wanted something romantic and timeless, but by no means stagnant and lifeless. She requested a modern twist and something with a more minimalist approach to contrast the organic florals, which included sugar ranunculus, peonies, eucalyptus, roses, spray roses, cabbage rose, violets, snow berries, and so many varying tones and varieties of greenery. We decided to treat the minimal bands like delicate pieces of jewelry to add some softness to the cake design. I try my best to capture someone’s true personality and soul in the cakes and spend a lot of time pouring over their references and reading over and over what they’ve said. In the end, Brianna was very pleased with her cake, and it’s wonderful to look at a finished cake and know that you made a connection with someone’s soul by executing the cake they always wanted, making instinctual decisions as the design process unfolds by basing all your decisions on their specific preferences and personality. It was a rough day photographing the cake at their wedding. The sunlight was at its fullest, so it was hard to find the perfect shady spot for photographing the cake. Their wedding party enjoyed, no doubt, my struggle with Deron in this endeavor. We are entertaining, if nothing else! In the end, I’m glad there is some documentation of their cake. To me, this cake perfectly embodies the idea of traditional romance. Still full of life, but very classic. I couldn’t express what a joy it was to work with both Brianna and Matt. They could not have been kinder and nicer to work with, their families included. A bride who is very concerned with the details and outcome, while still conducting herself in the way Brianna does is truly something to aspire to! I should try to recall that spirit as we plan our own wedding. www.mischiefmakercakes.com
