Love this Cake

If you’re just joining us, we are celebrating love all week long in honor of Valentine’s Day and my upcoming 10 year wedding anniversary!  Because we love everyday not just on February 14th, right?  We kicked off LOVE Week with our LOVE that Dress Giveaway from Shabby Apple followed by a lovely San Fran wedding that is so good it deserves two posts.  Today is the second half and well, we saved the best for last.  The Cake!  It’s easy to see why I LOVE this cake!

This cake is just spectacular!  But then again, I would expect nothing less from Shinmin of I Dream of Cake.  She is amazingly talented and one of my absolute favorite cake designers.  This design is crisp and modern yet has a whimsical feel to it.  The scroll work and birds mimic the wedding invitation and other wedding decor.  The sugar flower topper is a miniature version of the bride’s reception hairpiece.  I love how the cake is flanked by over-sized flower balls adding a ruffly feel similar to the bride’s amazing dress.  This whole table is absolute perfection!  Let’s take a look at some of the coordinating details…
