Eden’s Inspiration

This cake was a privilege and a pleasure. Eden(whom we’ve known since she was a little girl) and Andrew(whom we don’t know nearly as well, but he’s a real sweetheart) asked us to create a cake for their wedding day inspired by Eden’s wedding dress. Now, don’t worry, Andrew didn’t see either the dress or the plans for the cake, although he did accompany Eden to the consultation appointment and was allowed in the room for the tasting part. 😉

Eden’s dress was strapless, with a sweetheart neckline, cascading ruffles and a pearl and beaded embellishment at the waist. With the dress being so very romantic, we wanted the cake to convey the same romance, along with the elegant simplicity of the rest of the wedding. We used gum paste to create asymmetrically draped fabric and ruffles, and used pearl dust to give it that satin sheen. We created a focal point with a few beaded pieces and we’re incredibly pleased with the end result. We are both fans of white on white wedding cakes- there’s just something about them that evokes drama and romance, perfect for a once in a lifetime event.

Both Eden and Andrew wanted their wedding cake to reflect their fun personalities and so they chose three different flavour combinations: Vanilla Bean pound cake with Vanilla Bean buttercream and Salted Caramel, Decadent Chocolate cake with Peanut Butter buttercream, and Newfoundland Cherry Pound cake(giving homage to Eden’s family from the Rock) with Almond buttercream. Great choices, if you ask us! 😉

Our love and congratulations go out to you both, Eden & Andrew! 🙂

Eden sent us this picture after the wedding, saying:

“Best cake ever! You can’t even tell where the cake ends and my dress begins! These ladies are the best at what they do!”

Eden’s Invitation

An added bonus for creating Eden’s Inspiration– we got to make a small surprise cake for Eden’s bridal shower a few weeks before her big day. We used their wedding invitation as inspiration, incorporating white and black with a touch of yellow. This was a Decadent Chocolate cake with Vanilla Bean buttercream, a different combination from any they chose for the wedding, but still incredibly delicious! 😉

Congratulations, Eden!
