Pink Rose Floral Wedding Cake

This beautiful floral wedding cake featuring hand made pink roses consisted of 3 separate cakes with each one being a small version of the last & were to be displayed on a 'S' style cake stand.

One of the brides family owned the stand that they were using & the order was for pick up so unfortunately I don't have any photos of the cakes all set up on the stand, therefore I popped them onto some different height cake stands when I took my photos just to give you somewhat of an idea what they may look like when set up.  Hopefully I will be able to get hold of a photo or two from the wedding & then I will post them so you can see the proper effect.



All the cakes were different flavours.  The largest one, a 10" round (approx 35 regular serves) was 'Midnight Delight'(dark chocolate mud cake) with dark chocolate ganache filling.  The middle one, a 8" round (approx 25 regular serves) was 'Blind Dat'e (sticky date butter cake) with caramel ganache filling &  the smallest which was a 6" round (approx 10 regular serves) was 'Blondie' (vanilla butter cake) with fresh strawberry buttercream.



I covered all the cake boards with ivory fondant & embossed them with a lovely floral pattern.  Each cake had a shimmering string of pearls for the border which I dusted with lustre dust.



I hand made all the roses in various shades of pink & peach & dusted them with petal dust to highlight the petal edges.  Some I made full open bloom roses & other as rose buds.  I also added some general blossoms in ivory which were dusted with lustre dust to tie in with the pearls.




I also hand made a couple of beautiful butterflies for each cake to hover near the roses.



To finish off the design I piped a pattern of swirls & vines around the base of each set of roses.
