Grey Dahlia Ruffle Wedding Cake

Grey Dahlia Ruffle Wedding Cake 
This 3-tier wedding cake was created for the wedding of Terri-Ann and Stephen. Bottom tier- vanilla bean, middle tier- red velvet and top tier- carrot cake.

Terri-Ann had fallen in love with the Dahlia and Ruffles wedding cake I created for Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers Magazine (see below) and asked me to create this cake for her wedding with grey dahlia flowers to match her wedding theme. I love the combination of grey flowers with the feminine ruffles! 
Each guest at the wedding was also treated to a white chocolate cake pop with a grey flower, individually wrapped and tied with cadbury purple ribbon to match the decor.  Name tags were added to the cake pops so that they could be used as place settings for each guest.

Some lovely feedback from Terri-Ann  "Our beautiful cake was truly stunning and very tasty"

Glacier Gray

Glacier gray has been chosen as one of Pantone's colours of spring 2015. 
PANTONE describes Glacier Gray as "an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage". 
This makes it the perfect choice for weddings. It can be used as a neutral in its own right or paired with more vibrant colours such as yellow, coral and purple.
