Mint Green Dream
Taking inspiration from the calming effect of minty-green hues found in nature, Patricia Phan of Sweet Philosophy created cakes both timeless and unique. Ivy leaves set the tone for the colours and texture, while the large ruffles in the icing introduce softness and movement. Phan used fondant to create the ruffles, while gum paste provided the base for the complex leaves and flowers.
Alexandria Murray of Finespun Cakes & Pastries created this masterpiece using an array of bold handmade sugar flowers, dusty-rose fondant and delicate hand-piped royal icing details. Muted colours paired with pops of dark fuchsia reflect the vintage feel of the fabric swatch and add a little drama.
For Julie Montgomery and Emily Heck of Julie Emm Cakes, the idyllic romance of an English country garden served as the inspiration behind these pretty, tiered wonders. Branching off from traditional floral arrangements, Julie and Emily embraced a minimalist esthetic and a more organic, asymmetrical floral placement. “We wanted to keep the palette fresh, so we used a simple, white, hand-painted sea sponge technique on a spring green backdrop—the perfect canvas for our delicate floral vine,” says Montgomery.
A bridal bouquet and a couture wedding gown served as inspiration for these exquisitely crafted creations by Donna Maramba of Mademoiselle Vanilla. “I love the intricacy and beauty of lace on a wedding gown. This delicate and classy look can be easily translated onto a cake,” she explains. For the finishing touches, Maramba used gum paste to create roses, berries and filler flowers.
