From Sketch to Display: Cherry Blossom Cake, Part 2

Another couple, another cake, another sketch.  Cherry blossoms are a favorite décor accent, especially for couples integrating an Asian feel into their wedding.  Last week we shared Annie and Christian’s cherry blossom cake, and this week we wanted to share how another’s couples vision translated to their cake design.

Katherine and Ryan live in Las Vegas, but Ryan is a local boy so they decided to return to Honolulu for their February wedding at the Hale Koa Hotel.  Their wedding decor was inspired by this red plum blossom picture that Katherine gave us.  It also served as the main inspiration for their wedding cake.   Their reception was decorated with traditional Japanese details - shoji doors served as the backdrop for their head table and rice paper lantern centerpieces provided a modern accent.

When it came to their cake, Katherine and Ryan wanted to create a unique cake design inspired by this picture that integrated their traditional meets modern style.  For their cake design, we created a 3-tiered white fondant base cake. For a modern design approach, the cherry blossom branch climbed from the right side of their cake.  The branch was hand painted on for a softer overall look and had a textured feel for that traditional Japanese look. The handmade plum blossoms were matched to the picture provided and made in different sizes.  The 3D flowers added great dimension to the overall design.  Katherine and Ryan provided their own Double Hearts cake topper.   For their flavor, they chose Red Velvet and Cream cheese icing and Yellow Butter Cake with Fresh Strawberry cream filling.

Congratulations Katherine & Ryan!
