This is my final post on my wedding cake series. Thank you all so much for your kind support and for taking the time to stop by. You have all been super sweet and amazing.
To keep up with the vintage wedding theme, I made a three tier all white cake covered in fondant. Then I place a string of gold pearls around the top and bottom tier. For the second tier, I fully covered it with vintage gold buttons in various shapes and sizes. This for me adds texture and creates character to the cake.
Just like the previous cake, I wanted to keep things clean and simple. So I decided to scatter just four gum paste flowers on each corner of the cake just to balance them out if you will. I made two of those flowers in white with a vintage gold button in the middle and then, for the other two I painted the petals in edible gold powder and then place tiny sugar pearls in the middle of it.
I was pretty happy with how this cake turned out. Originally, I wanted to add about six or seven flowers, but somehow it didn’t seem right. It looked a little too much and a little crowded. Most of the time less is always more.
At the end of day, after having lots of conversation with myself and sleepless nights. I am so glad with the end results.
Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!
