With its romantic charm and refined beauty, today’s featured cake captured my heart upon first glance. And if you’re a girl who loves soft colors with a touch of elegance, prepare to be smitten as well. Shades of blush and pale rose pair up with subtle texture and breathtaking sugar flowers. Lush sugar peonies grouped with anemones, berries and branches create a scene that is meticulously tailored and oh-so-gorgeous. It’s the perfect pretty for any summer wedding and our Friday swooning. Let’s enjoy this stunning wedding cake created by Andrea of Andrea Nicholas Cakes in Portland, Oregon.
Andrea of Andrea Nicholas Cakes gives us the scoop on her technique:
“One of the things I enjoy most about what I do is discovering new decorating tools in items I am surrounded by everyday. Whether it’s an art supply store, hardware store, or antique mall – there’s always some unique piece that can be used to texture or embellish a cake!
I custom make my own silicone molds from real petals and leaves in order to replicate each flower in sugar as closely as possible, then I hand-paint and dust them to give them the appropriate shading and depth.”
More from Andrea of Andrea Nicholas Cakes:
“I intentionally left the fondant wrap texture on each tier fairly subdued in order to draw the eye up towards the sweeping cascade of sugar peonies, anemones, hypericum berries, and cherry blossom branches. I think the result is modern and romantic, yet timeless.”
Thank you to Andrea of Andrea Nicholas Cakes for sharing her lovely design with us today. From its vintage pink cake stand to the beautiful arrangement of sugar blooms, we’re loving every last detail. Every last petal!
