I hope you have a few moments to spare, because today’s feature is worthy of your full attention. It’s one of those cakes that’s almost too pretty for words. Gorgeous shades of blush pink are mixed with subtle hints of gold and tall slender tiers covered in pristine white fondant. Flirty, frilly wafer paper flowers cascade down the front, growing in size and abundance on the way down. While the surrounding table is overflowing with amazing cupcakes and statement-making flowers. The entire scene is absolutely magical and it comes to us from Stevi Auble, owner of Hey there, Cupcake! located in San Diego. I think it’s about time to let the photos speak for themselves…
Stevi Auble of Hey there, Cupcake! gives us the scoop on her design:
“This wedding reception was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla and the bride and groom wanted a cake that would not only fit into the romantic nature of a wedding but also hold its own in the museum. So with that in mind, I created this cake that combined edible gold leaf, wafer paper flowers and gumpaste accents. By mixing those mediums in a tight cascade down the cake, I kept the cake clean in design but offered a lot of softness. I also played with the heights of the tiers to give the cake a more modern aesthetic. The couple had quite an extensive guest list so we subsidized the cake servings with cupcakes. By displaying them on all white cake pedestals, we kept the whole presentation really clean and simple letting the sweets stand on their own.”
Words cannot do this cake table justice, it just that amazing!
