This time around the bride wanted the cake to match her color scheme - navy and olive. I used navy ribbon as a border and I used the leaves to bring in that olive color. The bride also wanted peonies, but wanted to make sure they were darker than the cake itself.
I got the peonies at Wholesale Sugar Flowers. Honestly, I like making my own, but the time I have to put into them makes them cost prohibitive for my customers. I dusted the flower petals with ivory and champagne, and the centers with a silver luster dust.
Stop back in on Friday to read our next installment!
