Whimsical Bridal Shower Tea Party Cake (2626)
This weekend we celebrated a special bridal shower with our friend, former intern and employee Kristin at the Smoke Rise Inn in Kinnelon, NJ. To celebrate her special event, we lovingly constructed this multi-tiered topsy turvy (or should I say leaning?) tea party themed cake.
The bottom tier of the cake includes light and dark pink ombre ruffle decorations with an ivory bow separating the last two tiers. Sitting above the bottom two tiers are a bouquet of sugar flowers in bright spring colors. Complimenting the bouquet, we painted a portrait of flowers on the teapot. (For more about painting on cakes, see Anna’s article on the intersection of fine art and cakes.)
Each successive teapot on the cake was constructed to continue to slant off to the side. We painted additional flowers on the top tier and topped it off with additional sugar flowers.
Congratulations Kristin and Greg!
