Part of a styled shoot with White Cat Weddings at the beautiful historic Locust Grove in Louisville, Kentucky , this sugar flower wedding cake by The Mischief Maker evokes the spirit of a hot bohemian summer. The various types of sugar greenery, including eucalyptus, rosemary, and ruscus, set the scene for the sugar coral charm peony and frilly vibrant sugar peony. We experimented with copper and gold for this cake. This design features an intricately combined color palette and includes sugar roses and scabiosa. Carefree and wild, this cake design combines both warm and cool tones to form the finished aesthetic.
This cake, to me, is a symbol of perseverance. The color palette truly did not begin to come together until an hour before we had to venture to the venue. This happens for us just like it does for many artists, but you just have to keep going until the bitter end if you truly have passion and care for your art. Within our last hour of work, we worked in the majority of the accent colors, the blue-lavender aspect, and did experimental coloring on the main frilly peony, which there was only one of! Had we failed on the coloring, it would have tragically been eliminated from the design. Never quit, not until the last minute, because if we had, this cake would only have peach, copper, sugar greenery and sunset colored roses! Every risk taken was worth it. It would have been perfect for fall without those additions, but not evocative of the sweltering hot summer mood that we wished to communicate.
