Engagement Gift Box Cake (2013)
We were contacted to create this engagement cake to celebrate the upcoming wedding nuptials for Talal and Ranya. The cake was inspired partially by our purple gift box wedding cake.
The highlight of the 5 tier asymmetrically stacked gift box cake are the bride-to-be and groom-to-be who are chatting with each other via phone on the sides of the cake. The top of the cake is highlighted with an eggplant multi-looped bow. Additional decorations include sugar flowers like fuchsia phalanopsis orchids, coral-burnt orange roses, mixed purple hydrangea and green leaves. The front of the cake includes an oval plaque with a personalized message for the couple.
Flavors and fillings included red velvet with cream cheese, chocolate with hazelnut Frangelico, red velvet with cream cheese, and finally chocolate with chocolate buttercream. We delivered the cake to the roof terrace at Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City.
