Sunflowers, Ruffles, and Appliques- My Daughter's Wedding!

My most important wedding cake creation ever! My daughter and new son-in-law’s wedding cake, groom’s cake, and son’s cake (we gained a bonus grandson as my new son-in-law has an adorable 4 1/2 year old son), cupcakes, and cupcake-in-a-jar favors. That’s what happens when your parents are cake designers….LOTS of cake at your wedding!

The main bridal cake had a 14" bottom tier of confetti cake with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream (SMB) filling and vanilla SMB ruffled icing. The middle 10" tier was a smooth fondant icing over coconut cake and coconut SMB filling with a grey fabric bow, and yellow fondant sunflowers between the middle and bottom tiers. The top 6" tier was also confetti cake with fondant icing quilted and with several fondant appliques and another grey fabric ribbon band.

I created the cake topper to resemble the newlyweds and used Fimo and Sculpey clays attached to a wooden base that I hand lettered with their initials and date. I added a tiny fabric pennant bunting between two skewers to match the profusion of full-sized pennant buntings used on all of the banquet tables.

The matching groom’s and son’s cakes were tiny SF Giants ballcaps in all white. The groom had confetti and the little fella had chocolate.

The cupcakes were displayed on our vintage, three-tier pedastal table and tiny cupcake art in yellow frames provided a key to the four cupcake flavors offered; chocolate heaven, coconut, lemon, and confetti.

The cupcake-in-a-jar favors were displayed on over a dozen vintage glass pedastals on loan from a collector friend. Glass canning jars were a big part of the day as the venue was at a beautiful, historic farm on the California Delta.

The cakes and cupcakes occupied three tables which were comprised of two banquet tables and one antique door salvaged during a remodel from the 75 year old school that the couple met at.
