In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Cake Blog is going pink! For an entire week, we’ll take a break from the Fall and Halloween inspiration to celebrate with pink. To remember, honor and support all of those who’s lives have been touched by breast cancer. We kicked off the week on Monday with this gorgeous Pink Awareness Cake. And today we’re back for more!
Our feature today is one of sweet abundance filled with pink desserts of every kind with a vintage flair too pretty for words. Brimming with pink ribbons, this Victorian dessert display has an ultra-feminine look, but with a modern twist. It starts with a table draped in lace and topped with pink cake stands, stacked double high. The fun continues with bite-sized sweets and mini desserts, with a few extra dashes of pink. Gorgeously creative details, like tea bag shaped cookies, add to the romantic charm. While a pink ribbon cake takes center stage. It comes to us from Erin Gardner, owner of Wild Orchid Baking Company in in New Hampshire. And well, it’s a perfect fit for our Pink Week!
Erin of Wild Orchid Baking Company gives us the scoop on this dessert display:
“This was a dessert spread I created for a Victorian Downton Abbey inspired shoot for one of our local wedding magazines. We had special permission to shoot at The Fells on Lake Sunapee here in New Hampshire. It’s a stunning historic estate and we were granted full access, which meant I got to raid the butler’s pantry!! The butler’s pantry was about the size of my current living room. The house was built to accommodate staff with doors and space between the walls for servers to move throughout the house from the kitchen. It’s a truly breath taking piece of property and we were so fortunate to be able to wander freely throughout the house.”
More from Erin of Wild Orchid Baking Company :
“For the dessert display I created a three tier fondant covered cake with looping hot pink fondant ribbons (mimicking the lace ribbons used on parasols) and a spooled fondant ribbon flower. The other desserts included cake truffles, cupcakes, brownie bites, cookies, gelee, doughnuts, and individually wrapped pound cakes. I also created tea bag cookie favors, for which Gus & Ruby Letterpress made the most beautiful tiny little tea tags that matched the stationery and included the wedding date.”
A huge thank you to Erin of Wild Orchid Baking Company for sharing this charming dessert display with us today. We are in love with all of the pink goodness it has to offer. Not to mention that incredible cake, with its pink ribbons swirling all around. So tall, slender and refined – it’s simply stunning!
