Talk about romantic…Usually, we are contacted by females about a wedding cake. But with this cake, the groom contacted us. He wanted his future wife to have the wedding cake of her dreams. He told his future bride that he would make sure that he found the perfect vendor to create what she had envisioned. He told me that she worked in the fashion world and would love to design the cake with me. I met with the groom first, so he could taste the cake and talk to me in person. Within, a few days the bride came in for a design consultation. She showed me a photo of a beautifully romantic bouquet of white and pink vintage style roses, varying in different shades. The type of flowers a bride picks for her wedding bouquet tells a lot about her style, personality, and the general mood of the wedding. Ironically, I had a similar bouquet for my wedding.
As soon as I met this couple in person, I started to understand what they were looking for. They were an elegant, classic couple. They reminded me of a modern Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire; right out of a 1930′s movie. I wanted to show that classic vintage romance, with a tiny touch of shimmer to the little blossoms. We made these sugar roses echo the heritage roses found in the bride’s bouquet.
Interestingly, this wedding cake was to be center stage at New York City’s well known, St. Regis New York, built in 1904, filled with gold gilded walls and hand-painted ceilings. All one could do, is picture a romantic event seemingly from another time and place.
