Daniela came in for an appointment to discuss options for her bridal shower cake, armed with a few photos of cakes she liked and a colour theme: purple. Daniela really liked the idea of the top tier to resemble a dress, so we designed the cake with this idea in mind.
We asked to see a photo of Daniela’s wedding gown. Her wedding gown is all ruffles at the bottom, so we incorporated that look into her bridal shower cake, as a kind of “preview” to the big event coming very soon.
To complement her colour theme, we coloured the panel a light purple, and we topped the cake with purple orchids. After showing Daniela an example of one of our purple gumpaste orchids, she was inspired to incorporate orchids in her shower theme: she bought potted puple phalenopsis orchids as bomboniere and included stems of purple orchids in her centrepieces.
Daniela’s flavour choice was dulce de leche buttercream. (Yum!)
The ruffles on the base tier were very labour intensive and took many hours to complete, but all of the work was well worth the look of the final product. The texture that the different ruffles provided made the cake beautiful.
We set the cake on a silver pedestal stand at the hall for a more prominent display.
Congratulations Daniela on your bridal shower! And happy planning until your big day!
