Copper Flower Wedding at the Hunter Museum

I have done quite a lot of wedding cakes in my career, but this is the first time I have had a request for metallic flowers.  But I must admit, If this is a new trend, I could really get on board with it!

This four tiered wedding cake is covered in buttercream with several small piped band going around each tier.  The bride wanted orchids with fat petals, so we worked together and finally settled on Vanda orchids, which the bride really loved.

I airbrushed each of the orchids with copper luster dust and then painted them with chocolate brown centers and white petal highlights.I then cascaded the flowers down the front of the cake.

We delivered this cake to the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga, TN.  It was our first trip to the venue and it was absolutely lovely.  Those artsy copper orchids fit in so well with the venue and the bride's decor.

Thanks to all of you that stop by and read my little old blog.  As always, I appreciate your comments!

    The way you placed the sugar flowers on the cake and the piped band going around the tiers make the cake very elegant. I love metalic!
