Italian Majolica Inspired for Around the World in Sugar Weddings Collaboration

With the world as our oyster for this collaboration, I wracked my brain to find wedding traditions to inspire this cake. Ultimately, I decided to use my own heritage and family traditions to create a cake that incorporates some techniques I love and some I wanted to experiment with doing.
I chose an antique Italian Majolica vase as my inspiration. At Italian weddings, guests are given a rather elaborate gift for attending, known as a Bomboniera. These gifts are wrapped with confetti, 5 Jordan almonds that symbolize well wishes for the couple’s future. Capodimonte and Majolica are some examples of traditional gifts so I searched almost endlessly for the perfect piece.
I covered the cake in an ivory marble fondant and painted an ombre muted watercolor as the backdrop using gel colors and vodka. I created the flowers from gumpaste and the easy peony cutter that I highly recommend for a simple go-to flower.
These are all techniques I enjoy very much so this was a joy to create! I prefer an organic type cake that does not need to be geometrically precise. Some cakes just come more easily and this one was one of them. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
thank you for looking
