This cake is fun and flamboyant. Its candy stripes and polkadots are in ombre colours to match seamlessly with its ruffled bottom tier. It is feminine, playful and romantic and although the three tiers are all different they compliment each other extremely well.
What a cake! It has a 1920’s retro vibe with its fringing, pearl and lace details. Its bursting with movement from tier to tier and is topped with a show stopping edible flower. It can also be altered to fit a colour scheme. It would sit perfectly in any shabby chic, vintage or pastel colour themed wedding.
This stunning two tier cake is partially inspired by the Royal Alcazar of Seville and it works. You can just imagine having a slice of the cake whilst sat relaxing in the garden of a rustic Spanish villa enjoying the festivities in the sunshine. Oh we can dream. The tiled effect looks complicated but its actually quite simple to create yourself using stencils.
