A Little Cake Sparkle

When you work in the wedding industry, you have to love all things feminine, romantic, and glamorous. It’s just a given. Lace, metallics, ruffles, diamonds…you name it. But let’s face it – there are only so many different color and textile combinations and sometimes things can have a tendency to feel a little stale. Thankfully, Timeesha Duncan of Tim Duncan Events gave us the opportunity to replace romance with whimsy and feminine with bold. And whenever you give us a chance to be bold, we’ll definitely run with it!

Above is a peek at the inspiration board Timeesha gave us as the basis for a modern photo shoot for the new issue of Oh-Brides Magazine. The pizzazz and pop comes from the sharp contrast of gold and black. While gold is a traditional wedding color, black is just as much not. But it’s the black in this color palette that really enhances the shine and sparkle of the gold, so we knew we had to make it a key element in our cake design.

While we toyed around with the idea of making a cake completely covered in black fondant, we felt that brides might not find it accessible or applicable to their own ideas of the perfect wedding cake. The sketch we ultimately chose features an abstract array of hexagons in the black and gold color scheme. Mimicking the light and movement of sparkling glitter, we thought this design struck the perfect balance between fun and elegant.

As long as we were making a fun cake, we couldn’t pass up the change to make some ruffle flower mini cakes and cookie favors to match! Everyone who is anyone needs their own personal mini cake.

Hello, adorable!

Real Wedding Cake: Leauna & Eron

Nothing makes us happier than seeing the final photos from a beautiful wedding and a memorable wedding cake. Leauna and Eron tied the knot last August and we’ve been dying to share their cakes since then!

The wedding cake was a towering beauty iced in our traditional buttercream with black fondant accents. In between each tier is a lovely combination of hydrangeas and roses to match the ceremony decor. These classic motifs set against the urban industrial feel of The Foundry at Puritan Mill create a wonderful juxtaposition of soft and strong.

And as if that wasn’t enough, we created a custom groom’s cake – an homage to Eron’s love of Ralph Lauren polos!

Okay, we lied. There is something that makes us happier than seeing these photos… making a beautiful couple’s cake dreams come true!
