Tori and Nick’s sugar flower wedding cake at Berry Hill Mansion in Frankfort, Kentucky. Evoking the spirit of Spring, this cake’s color palette felt perfectly in place as it drove to its venue, past flowering purple plants, beneath red bud trees, and along rows upon rows of lime green foliage. Cloaked in light purple fondant and grounded in stunning gold architectural moulding, the cake was enveloped in a flourishing sugar flower cascade, which included white peonies, sweet peas in shades of purple and blush, delicately crafted green viburnum, and lavender all of which grew up and over the striking background the fondant and moulding provided. The sugar flowers had many wedding guests questioning whether the sugar blooms were real flowers.
No fewer than eight shades of French macarons were dyed in shades of purple, blush, and green, to give a playful and inviting mix to the delectable bite size desserts. The antique gold serving pieces complimented the historic architecture of the venue, while elevating the lighter color palette with regal and Parisian flair. The dark, wood molding and trim encasing the venue’s stunning, natural-light emitting windows offered a beautiful, well lit backdrop for the cake.
