Black & White Petals Cake

Today’s cake is so fabulous that I did a little leap when I first saw it!  And then again when I started writing this post!  I have a little obsession with the color grey, only to be followed by my love of black and white.  While some tend to think of these colors as boring, this cake begs to differ.  Talk about striking!  Honestly, I’m not sure why I’m even rambling on because by now I’m sure you’ve caught a glimpse of the cake and are swooning over it as well.  The geometric pattern in black and white is so eye catching and definitely makes a statement.  We’re absolutely loving this Black & White Petals Cake, created by Allison of AK Cake Design in Portland.

This amazing cake was inspired by a Kate Sullivan design but done in a higher contrast.  The black and white really makes this pattern pop!

Allison says she “absolutely love(s) working with patterns and geometric designs – the more tedious and time-consuming the better!”  Looks like Allison knows her strong suit because she did a knock out job on this cake.  Each piece of fondant is precisely placed to create this perfectly aligned and balanced pattern.  Love, love, love!

A very special thank to you to Allison for sharing her stunning Black & White Petals Cake with us today. You can see more of her incredible cake creations on the AK Cake Design website and on their Facebook Page.
