The next time you see "fresh flowers" on a cake, look more closely. They might actually be gumpaste.
I love the yellow and purple flowers on this one. I'm not very good with all the names, but I think they're daisies. And the photography is stunning, too.
These aren't on a cake yet, but I thought Abbie's work on that top flower was especially fantastic. (Pretty sure it's a daisy.) Check out the blending of the pale green!
Next, we have the work of Ellen Bartlett:
You know you're dealing with skilled artisans when you have to email them to make sure the flowers aren't real. (I did. They aren't.)
Our next cakes were made by Lyndsey Gamble:
I love the big bunches of flowers. Daisies.
Not only are the flowers fantastic, but check out the lace and ribbon work! (Yes, those are sugar, too.)
I love the contrast between the orange and the purple.
Just look at the veining in the petals! Wow. Those are some sweet
Such a cool design: the minimalism of the cake makes the flower burst really "pop."
As a guy who's spent the last three years staring at some the of the best and worst cakes in the world, I often wish that I could go back to our wedding day and get a more memorable cake. Of course, knowing Jen, we'd then have to choose between a beautiful cake like this - only covered in poppies - or a perfect scale model of a Borg cube inscribed with "Resistance is futile."
Speaking of which, we're looking for more Sci-Fi Sweets! So if you have one to nominate, be sure to send it to sundaysweets (at) cakewrecks.com. Thanks, and wreck on!
