Today, we present to you a slice of magic, Kaitlyn and Eric’s celestial sugar moon garden wedding cake by The Mischief Maker at Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. Inspired by the bride’s blue-gray Hayley Paige wedding dress and multiple celestial and mystical fashion references, this enchanted wedding cake was covered in hundreds upon hundreds of hand-made edible silver sequins and stars. To add just the right dash of magic to this spellbound cake, the sequins were made in various shades to convey the effect that light was hitting the beads, giving them an iridescent quality. Real sequins do this on their own, but in edible form, this illusion must be entirely crafted by assembling the right shapes and colors next to one another. It was very important that the edible sequins have the signature punch-out in the center and proper dimension. Gilded fireflies danced among the tiers.
In addition to the mystic bead work, the cake was topped with sugar flowers whose shape took on a thematic star-like form. Sugar dahlias, nigella, and clematis are all present with some moon garden (gardens designed to specifically be seen at night) inspired sugar greenery and garden roses to finish.
