Tivoli Theater in Chattanooga, TN. There are dark red curtains, gold and silver fixtures and lots of pretty marble. The bride chose darker shades of orange and purple to accent her Fall wedding.
It is really a
challenge to add a lot of color to a bridal cake while ensuring it
doesn't look like a fancy birthday cake. A baker can add tons of tonal
details and the cake rarely looks busy, but color really changes things. The "easy" part of this cake was the bottom stencil and the drop
strings. For the bottom tier we used the "princess lace" stencil from
Designer Stencils. This is the largest design in the set.
There is a cake all over Pinterest that shows a beautiful cake with a
domed top tier and the same lace doily design. When the bride
presented me the picture, I thought "holy moly that is a lot of
intricate piping!" and therefore a bunch of money. She was on a budget
and I wanted to help. I got so lucky and found the the lace was all
done with a SugarVeil mat and SugarVeil.
I found the same mat on Etsy for a lot less money that Sugar Veil was
charging. It worked great! After I removed the lace, I dry brushed it
with gold luster dust and immediately applied it to the dome. It really
did cut down the work while still looking like we had done a lot of
hand work. I was really happy with the final product and the Bride
loved it too!
