Tangerine and Turquoise Tango

Summer hasn’t officially started…. yet I want to crown today’s design as “Cake of the Summer”.  I know.  I know.  It’s too early in the season to make such a sweeping declaration.  But today’s featured cake is SO right now.  SO Summer 2012!

Somehow, Rachael Teufel of Intricate Icings Cake Design has brought together all of today’s hottest trends into one stunning cake!  Without it seeming too trendy.  The Pantone color of the year, Tangerine Tango, is paired with a vibrantly bright turquoise blue (color combo = hot).  The ever popular chevron pattern zigs and zags around the top tier with dramatic flair.  Meanwhile, a geometric square pattern provides detail and structure to the base tier (pattern mixing = hot, hot).  And last but not least, two ranunculus sugar flowers add a pop of color with their paper-like blooms (ranunculus = hot, hot, hot!).  Join me in swooning over this trend-setting Tangerine and Turquoise Tango Cake…

Oh, and did I forget to mention that it’s simply spectacular?  Look at that two-toned woven belt around the middle tier!  Gorgeous!
