wedding cake idea single sugar peony flower Inspired by Michelle Cake Designs

wedding cake idea single sugar peony flower with bees Inspired by Michelle Cake Designs

Hi, I was asked to show in more detail the wedding cake I have displayed on the side of my blog. So I went searching for the original images and I put this little cake gallery together.

The colours were taken from the wedding invitation as were the little bees.

The flower is my version of a peony or a full open rose and is made from sugar paste – I have made then in all sorts of colours.

The bottom tier is a double height cake which means it is two separate cakes on their own boards set up together before the final layer of ganache and fondant icing. This makes serving the cake very easy as you cut down to the first board, serve the top tier, remove that board then you can serve the bottom tier.

Bye for now, Michelle

engagement, wedding cupcake decorating ideas inspired by michelle cake designs

These are some engagement cupcakes I made the other week for a lovely couple. The colours and design details match their engagement invitations.

The brown boards you can see are brown fondant covered cake boards with white blossoms and white ribbon trim. These were used to display the cupcakes in the centre of the tables – acting as centre pieces for the evening which I thought was a clever idea as it reduced the costs for the party but still made a lovely and personal display. I have only shown the boards with a few cupcakes on them as I did not want to damage them. The paper cases also matched the theme colours.

The cupcakes were three different flavours – chocolate mud, white mud and caramel mud. Two had rolled fondant tops with chocolate ganache underneath the other design had buttercream swirls.

Bye for now, Michelle

These are just a few of the fun cake designs I get to make or I guess you could also call them novelty cakes.

Usually they are for birthday celebrations young and old but there is a wedding cake and a kitchen tea cake amongst them.

I particularly loved the challenge of making the birthday cake bus carry partying dogs to a 30th party – the design came from the smilebox animated invitation.

OK these are some of the cakes I have made that have red as the dominate colour. They range from Santa’s red hat to a red hot chilli. There is even a couple of wedding cakes and a mini cooper car.

Enjoy!

This is the second collage of wedding cakes I’m posting today.

Some of the more interesting wedding cakes these days use the wedding stationery as a design resource not only for the detail but also the colour and texture. The colour and shimmer effect of a paper can be duplicated on a cake etc. The peacock feather on the single tier was the design on the backing paper and the cake was shimmered to match.

The white flower design band on the two tier cake in soft green match the invitation – this was actually an engagement cake but it fits in perfectly in the wedding cake style. The white flowers sit on a band of darker green and the flower centers had diamante. The cake top was finished with a monogram in the same script as the invitation.

I have also included a white chocolate wedding cake.

The flowers on these cakes cover all categories sugar, fresh and silk. Like I always say anything is possible.

I was asked to add some of my wedding cake ideas to this blog so I am going to do this in two posts. I had not realised that I had missed this so I apologise!

Wedding cakes have changed so so so much from when I made my own many years ago. I think they have more personality and definitely more colour.

These cakes cover single tier, two tier, three tier, double height and birdcage designs. Details include bride and groom penguin topper that I made out of fondant to succulents and still the most popular white sugar roses.

I loved making this cake and I was asked to show it in more detail so I have made a collage of some of the pictures I took before it was picked up – I am by no means a photographer but I think you can see more detail here than the photo on my website.

80th birthday cake idea lemon with peony flower

80th birthday cake idea lemon with peony flower Inspired by Michelle Cake Designs

It is a double height cake covered in lemon fondant with white blossom and branch detailing. I then made a stand-up 80 out of fondant to sit on top. The design is finished with a sugar peony flower I made in graduating colour to a golden center.

I have included this gallery of cake designs in my wedding cake posts because I think this would be a beautiful wedding cake even if it was all white on white.
