Other pictures and designs from bridal magazines help in creating that magical cake. We can help with mixing and matching ideas. Have Fun!
Handmade flowers can be created to coordinate with the bride’s or the bridesmaid gowns or bouquet. If real flowers are used on your cake, I can talk with your florist to discuss the cake size and coordinate time of delivery so the flowers can be placed on the cake
Keep in mind that you don’t always have to match everything. Darker colors may not always appear true. Plum, burgundy and royal blue may appear black in pictures. Small amounts of these colors are better. Color may be added by simply placing bridesmaid’s flowers around the base of your cake when displayed.
Several ideas are available if a traditional bride and groom is not what you prefer on the top tier of your wedding cake. Consider a handmade cold porcelain bouquet, a bow or fresh flowers or I can order ornaments for the top tier.
Ordering – Remember dates can be filled fast. To reserve your date a deposit is almost always required. Final payments are usually requested prior to delivery.
