Andrea and Brandon’s sugar flower, fall wedding cake in Paintsville, Kentucky. A textured variety of sugar foliage, buds, and flowers adorned the cake, which was enveloped in a custom-colored lilac fondant that allowed the burgundy shades of the sugar chocolate cosmos to pop forward. As captivating as our new chocolate sugar cosmos were, one flower doesn’t make an arrangement, so we accented the cosmos with purple and ivory sugar roses, gilded acorns, purple kale, gold ferns—for an additional metallic element—and an assortment of buds, leaves, and other foliage and flowers. In addition to the inspired floral arrangement, the cake design was finished off with enchanted, spiraling molding. Each piece of the puzzle, that was this particular cake, attributed to the final product: an autumn cake that represented the colors and feel of fall without veering into the drab, muddled palette many often associate with the season.
