Oceanside Beach Beauty

The deep blue waters of the ocean.  A pale blue sky.  An impeccably tailored white-on-white textured cake.  I so want to dive, head first, right into this gorgeousness!  Today’s featured cake comes to us from Melissa of Buttercream Couture and it is simply fabulous!  I’m talking spend-the-afternoon-at-the-yacht-club kind of fabulous! It’s elegant, modern and and makes me want to sail off into the sunset… with a slice of cake!  From the layers of overlapping fondant bands to the fantasy flowers, everything about this four-tiered wedding cake is delightful.  Let’s bask in the glow of this Oceanside Beach Beauty.

Melissa from Buttercream Couture shared a little background about her design:

“The cake was made for a stylized sailboat photo shoot.  I was asked to participate and given an inspiration board, a very pale colour palette and four key words that encompassed the feel of the shoot.  I didn’t know what any of the other vendors involved were providing.  I hadn’t spent more then two minutes on the phone with anyone creatively involved and I had less then a week to pull it together.  So it was a real challenge.  There were so many avenues I could have taken but ultimately I went with what I love.  I love texture over colour.  I love softness.  I love contrasts.  I tailored my loves to suit the key words (which were sleek, modern, luxurious and rich in case you were curious).”

    I just want to sit there and drink and eat and look! Absolutely breathtaking. The texture is amazing and so do the flowers.

    I LOVE it!! It completely reminds me of my wedding gown which was architectural layers of silk chiffon.
