Rustic Wedding Cake with Modern Flowers

I’m finally getting another cake up on the blog! Goodness, time goes by so fast.  I made this cake in June for my cousin’s wedding.  We came up with the idea by combining a few different ones we liked.  I think my favorite thing about this cake is the alternating single/double layers.  I also really like the borders….those took a little longer than I expected but I really like the way they turned out.

Cherry Blossom Wedding/TOM’S Groom’s cake

My sister’s wedding cake.  I looked at about a million pictures of cherry blossom tree cakes and just loved one that I found with the branches painted on instead of using fondant (thankfully that was the one my sister loved too).  It was quite difficult to “paint” on buttercream, but I just love the way it turned out.  The other hard part was forming each and every flower out of gum paste…..I had never even worked with gum paste before this cake so it took me a while.  This was by far the hardest cake I’ve done to date, but definitely my favorite 🙂  Thanks for trusting me to make your cake Kels 🙂

The groom’s cake.  My sister’s husband is a huge TOM’S fan, so we had to do it.  I was so relieved when they turned out good!!

This was the very first cake that I was asked to make for someone, my little friend Chloe 🙂  I had just finished taking one of the Wilton classes where I learned how to make all these beautiful flowers.  Although I never seem to make royal icing flowers anymore, it was still a really fun skill to learn.  This was when I first realized that I really loved decorating cakes and started taking it more seriously.  Thanks for taking a chance on a friend Abby!!
