I really didn’t mean to tease you all with part one and lead you to think that I was leaving you hanging and waiting for part two. There are no excuses. Really, there is none. And yet, somehow I was working up a good one in my head. But I shall not bore you with what I’ve been doing or how getting a good internet connection can sometimes feel like you’ve won the lottery.
OK, let’s talk about this wedding cake. The theme was vintage classic. So I went with the classic. When I think about vintage, almost immediately if not automatically, my mind wonders off to something lacey and something with pearls. The design of this cake is nothing too elaborate. I wanted to keep it clean and simple and went with a three tier cake in an all-white fondant and then adorn these babies with some gum paste lace design and a pearl border.
I must say that the picture here doesn’t do much justice to the cake. I have myself to blame for that really. The weather was seriously hot and humid that day and between carrying the cake out to the beach (yes, it was a beach wedding) and putting on the finishing touches and also between sweating in my spanx, I was so overwhelm with everything that was going on around me, I just wasn’t thinking anymore.
I didn’t use a topper for this cake; I really didn’t see the need for that. I wanted to highlight all that lace and pearls with a bouquet of all-white gum paste peonies. It made sense to do that. The peonies sort of made everything popped! And after spending two whole weeks making those peonies, I am glad it all worked out.
Be sure to come back for part three 🙂 and thank you for stopping by.
