From Sketch to Display: Cherry Blossom Cake

After meeting with a client for their cake consultation, one of the first things we do is put together a sketch of their cake based on the design details we discussed.  This is based on photos provided, their invitation, cake size/shape, color swatches, and much more).  Here is one example of a cake we did from sketch to display:

Annie and Christian came to their wedding cake consultation prepared with lots of information!  They wanted a large cake, with a cherry blossom theme, butterflies, and LOTS of pink!  We discussed several floral arrangements for their cherry blossom design but Annie wanted to do something different than a common climbing branch design. 

After our consultation, we put together their sketch of "blooming" floral bouquets arranged throughout their 4-tiered cake.  Their light pink buttercream and cobalt blue bands around the tiers were all color matched to fabric swatches they provided.  For a little added detail, we included a swirl piping design along the cobalt bands in a slightly brighter shade of pink.  The cherry blossoms were colored a brighter shade of pink to "pop" off their cake. Silver metallic sugar butterflies were added around their tiers.  Annie and Christian provided their own custom figurine topper. 

The flavors they chose were our Yellow Butter Cake (all color tinted light pink!) with Lilikoi Cream filling, and Pretty Pink Strawberry Cake with Guava Cream filling... Even the inside of their cake was PINK! =)
