Flowers on a wedding cake look very fresh & elegant. Flowers often represent new beginnings so they’re perfect for weddings!
When brides choose to add flowers to their wedding cakes, the florist just leaves them at the reception so we can add them when we deliver the cake. Usually, that works out just fine…unless, of course, there aren’t enough flowers.
For example, here’s a simple white and ivory wedding cake covered with fondant. According to the cake design, we were supposed to add flowers under the cake, under the top tier, and on the top of the cake.
Overall, it’s not a bad cake by any means. But just image how much more lush and elegant it would have looked it there were more flowers! There were gaping holes between the yellow roses under the cake, and the topper is simply meager.
The blossoms were all relatively small so it took a greater number of them to create the full effect. But, I think you’ll agree that the flower layer under the top tier looks full, vibrant, and fresh!
And the bride requested two realistic sugar butterflies on the bottom tier. These butterflies are really “in” right now – very earthy and “free.” I’ve got a few more butterfly cakes to show you soon…you’ll like them!
