Super excited to be able to finally share one of the projects I worked on recently – this one, for the August issue of Cake Masters magazine!
I very rarely get the opportunity to create wedding cakes since all my friends are married, so it’s mostly birthday cake requests for me! So when I was invited to contribute a tutorial for the coveted Wedding Cakes edition of Cake Masters, I jumped at the chance. Luckily, they wanted some non-traditional design ideas which was right up my alley!
So this is my Modern Decor Inspired Wedding Cake design, incorporating features that are popular in modern architectural and home decor trends. The colours were based on a combination I had wanted to try for a while so what better time to test them out then when I have free reign (haha)?
Whenever I go out of the box and try a new idea or colour combo on cake, I never know how it will be received and I am always so very doubtful on whether the finished product will match my vision or even if others will see it like I do. So it feels a bit daunting to put it out there but I hope you all like it!!
This is a surprisingly simple design which lends to the minimalist modern vibe I wanted to convey. The tutorial from start to finish is shown in 54 simple steps, including the two new styles of wafer paper flowers inspired by paper craft techniques.
This one is very dear to my heart being my first ever full length magazine tutorial and feature ☺
Special thanks to Laura and Rosie of Cake Masters for the incredible opportunity. To get your copy of this issue, visit their FB page or www.cakemasters.co.uk.
