Beau­ti­ful chintz and flo­ral fab­rics in­spire a host of stun­ning wed­ding cakes with gor­geous in­tri­cate, hand­crafted de­tails.

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.

Vic­to­rian Deca­dence

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.

Fine Flo­rals

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.

So­phis­ti­cated Beauty

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.
