Grandview Peony Wedding

This weekend we were back at the beautiful Grandview Inn delivering this gorgeous buttercream wedding cake.

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!
