Veronique and Jared wanted something simplistic and modern. Their catering was going to serve dessert, so they didn't need a large cake. So I decided on a two-tiered 8" and 6" wedding cake. I have to say I was a little lost on what to create, until I saw the picture of her dress. You will not be able to see it on the pictures that follow, but at her empire waist line and the hemming line where the mermaid tail flares, there is a layered ribbon technique used. I decided to pull this detail from her dress and use it on their wedding cake. Veronique had purple orchids dyed blue and I decided to use that blue in the ribbon detail. Here are images of the cake
I am pretty happy with how it turned out! We were asked to stay for dinner and I was really excited to see the bride and groom cut into and enjoy my creation. Here are few pictures of the bride and groom

And lastly, a picture of inside the cake. Chocolate, vanilla, chocolate layers oh my!
Thank you Veronique and Jared for letting me do your wedding cake! And thank you for letting Tyler and I be apart of your special day! You two make the most darling couple and I know there are only good things to come for you two... one in July!
Until next time, happy baking!
