It’s all in the Details

August 27, 2010  |  Outer Banks Wedding Cake

This amazing cake was created for one of our favorite clients to celebrate her birthday.  The overall effect of the cake is magnificent, but upon further inspection you find many little added details and hidden touches that personalized this cake especially for the birthday girl.

The top of the cake had a perfume bottle peaking out of the top of a fabric bag made with fondant.  The fabric bag had a design that looked like that of a “couture” sari and had a drawstring with a bow to close it around the portion of the perfume bottle that was sticking out.

The middle tier of the cake had confection flowers along the top of the tier surrounding the bottom of the drawstring perfume bag.  The sides of the middle tier had hearts pressed out of fondant to give a textural three dimensional look.  This entire middle tier was then draped with a confection sugar veil lace that allowed you to see through the lace veil to the fondant heart design underneath.

The sugar veil lace effect from the middle tier puddled onto the top of the bottom tier.  Where the lace veil puddled, we added coral and sea shells that look like they are made out of sea glass, peeking out.  Also peeking out from under the sugar veil was a little crab, a favorite detail of the birthday girl.  The sides of the bottom tier were quilted fondant to give the cake a plush yet luxurious look that is reminiscent of Marie Antoinette.  In between the crisscrossing of the quilting was embellished with gold and silver beads that  added a touch of the unexpected to the overall design.

The party décor was designed by Renee Landry of Renee Landry Style (  to match the style of the client.  Renee was able to create a party atmosphere that accented the client’s personality perfectly.  Our cake further accentuated the creative designs of Renee that made the night one that the birthday girl will never forget.
