Ashley and Mike’s Blush and Gold Sugar Flower Wedding Cake. The blush wedding cake was draped in a cascade of detailed sugar flowers, including sugar roses, cabbage roses, peonies, hydrangeas, greenery, and buds. In addition to our specialty sugar flowers, Ashley and Mike’s cake offered us the opportunity to practice with French, ornate, gilded moulding embellishments, a whimsical yet stately design element we don’t always have the luxury to play with. Elevated on sugar feet, accentuated by a moulding bow ascending from the cake’s swagged base, the cake was decorated from the stand to the top tier in a variety of borders, along with a few higher placed swags to tie in the base moulding. To further cement the evocation of a storybook essence fit for a princess, we integrated a flourish in the custom cursive monogram of the lovely couple’s initials, and we topped the whole design off by trickling sugar rose petals down the tiers.
