Mod Black & White Swirls

Today’s featured cake is as sleek as it is modern.  A not-so-ordinary cake created for a not-so-ordinary wedding.  Inspired by the bride’s lace fascinator, this design is strikingly bold and simply beautiful!  Gorgeous hand-painted swirls embellish all three tiers, softly contrasting the crisp black and white color combo.  It’s the perfect combination of graphic and glamorous, retro and chic.  All perched upon one fabulous black cake stand.  Let’s take a look at this Mod Black & White Swirls Cake, created Jamie Hoffman, owner of Yuma Couture Cakes in Yuma Arizona.

Jamie of Yuma Couture Cakes shares the story her design:

“When I met with the bride, I could immediately tell the design was going to be out of the ordinary.  I was presented with bright red peacock feathers, black and white checkerboard dance floor photos, and an absolutely out of this world red, black and white feather and lace fascinator that she planned to wear down the aisle, with a curious little black and white hand painted clip that was attached to the fascinator.  I knew that design would need to be the inspiration for her cake.  Initially I sketched out three tiers with only one little swoopy design and some gumpaste feathers for the middle tier, intending to be minimalist, but immediately scribbled out what I drew and covered all three tiers with it.  The bride was thrilled!  On cake day, I carefully free hand painted the fondant covered tiers with black gel color and several different script style brushes.”

Don’t you just love the whole vibe of this display?  The hand-painted swirly tiers, each embellished with a single black band.  Not only is the cake a stunner, but check out that cake stand!  You know how I love cake stands…  and every cake deserves a stand as fabulous as this one!  It’s slender sleek appearance creates the perfect pedestal for this incredible cake!

A special thank you to Jamie Hoffman of Yuma Couture Cakes for sharing her Mod Black & White Swirls cake with us today!  We love it’s bold creativity and style!
