Orchid Wedding Cake

I do lots of wedding cakes where i decorate with swirls and/or curls, but this bride brought me a photo of a cake that had, for lack of a better term... slashes.  They were very different and created a really cool look.  I thought the cake turned out great!

During our consultation, the bride said she wanted orchids on the cake.  That's what I sketched out and that's what I was planning on seeing at the wedding and I even discussed it with the florist before the wedding.  But when I arrived, the florist had other flowers.  The florist and I quickly scoured the facility and gathered the few remaining orchids from all the arrangements.  We used a few rose petals to add an extra little splash of color.

The lesson here is that sometimes no matter how much pre-planning you do, sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and make the best of things even when ideal conditions are not present.

Have an awesome weekend and Happy Easter to all!


  1. Fabulous recovery - cake looks amazing!

  2. I like the slashes... very different and kind of reminds me of branches or flower stems.... very nice

  3. That is what you call a true caker, someone that know how to deal with the unexpected and in the end it's more beautiful than planned. Well done, gorgeous as usual!

  4. The cake is gorgeous no doubt! & the slashes are very cool & professional....I'm sure the bride & groom LOVED IT!
