Michele and her husband celebrated their nuptials at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park back in November of 2011. We were commissioned to create a wedding cake for their celebration and the theme of the cake centered around the distinctive paisley design.

We’ve incorporated the paisley design across a variety of cakes through the years, and it is a beautiful design element for wedding cakes. The sideways teardrop design is of Iranian and Indian origin and serves as a great way for a couple to incorporate pieces of their ethnic origin into the cake.

During my research of all things paisley, I came across this interesting post from Barbara Brackman which discusses whether “Persian pickles” is truly a historical term used to describe paisley or just a fictional offshoot of the popular “Persian Pickle Club” book.

What does seem to be accurate is that the actual origin of the word Paisley was derived by a town in Scotland of the same name. Other interesting derivatives of the name include Mankolam (from India) and Boteh Jegheh which the Persian translation.

The cake itself was covered in whtie fondant with piped paisley patterns on each tier in white with pearlized details. Flavors and fillings included chocolate and vanilla cake with oreos and cream buttercream, chocolate buttercream, coffee buttercream, and hazelnut buttercream.

Michele was kind enough to provide these photos of the cake from her photographer. Thanks Michele! She also left us this email:

The cake was beautiful, and we received a number of compliments.
