The forecast for today’s post is snowy with a pop of sunshine. That’s because cake #9 in our 12 Cakes of Christmas series is here! A wintry scene gets a dose of cheer with delightful sugar flowers. From myer lemons and sage leaves to vibrant red poppies, today’s cakes are a bright spot in the midst of Winter. Created by Emily Lael Aumiller, owner of Lael Cakes in Brooklyn, these Snowshine Flower Cakes will have you smiling!
Emily created these beauties for a photo shoot at the Poppies and Posies studio. Transformed into a mystical winter wonderland, Emily’s delicate sugar flowers emerged from a snow covered ground. With it’s own little red bench and wintry forest, this striking design features red poppies, bittersweet berries, drumstick flowers, and geranium foliage.
And because two cakes are twice the fun, ‘Cake #9′ is actually a pair. I simply couldn’t choose a favorite between these two… so I thought we’d share both! This next cake just speaks to the cook in me. Lemons brighten any dish, and these sugar myer lemons definitely brighten this design. Not to mention the incredible pink tulips and unexpected sage leaves.
Aren’t they just incredible?!? I love the contrast of the cold snow with the warm, inviting flowers and fruit. What a wonderful way to wrap up this week of snow themed cakes. Next week The 12 Cakes of Christmas concludes with cakes 10 to 12. Plus one more DIY project for those last-minute party planners out there.
A very merry thank you to Emily at Lael Cakes for sharing her delightfully snowy, sugar flower cakes with us today. Be sure to check out additional designs from Emily and other talented cake artists in our Holiday Cake Gallery. New designs are added daily. Happy Friday everyone!
