cake of the wedding variety.

I was catching up on my reader today and I saw this post over at Classic Bride. I've already said how my sister-in-law-to-be (from now on she will be 'SIL2B') offered to make our wedding cake, so I don't want to ask her for anything too complex, especially since IT'S ONLY GOING TO GET EATEN. The SIL2B had already said how she had done a cake before which had icing 'pearls' stacked up the sides of each tier, I don't think this is necessarily too far beyond that idea do you?Of course I'd make the flowers for the topper etc, I just think its so vintage pretty, and yet so classic and stylish. Maybe just a couple of petals here and there in plum to put some colour in it...

As always, opinions welcome!
p.s. as someone pointed out in the comments over at classic bride, the cake in that tutorial isn't homemade or decorated by them (although they don't claim to, CB implied it) but I found this tutorial on how to do the swiss dots too if you're interested.

  1. Ooo I think it is very beautiful. Tasteful, classic, very elegant and not overly fussy. Lovely.
