The bride and groom sent me a picture of this wedding cake with an abstract design. They wanted this design with fresh yellow daisies in place of the butterflies (which I thought made more sense), and yellow in place of the turquoise on white fondant.
So, I got out my styrofoam cake dummy, some paper, and some pins, and began drawing patterns.
Here is the final product...the black is made from Hershey's Special Dark cocoa, and the dots are done with Sugar Veil...which gives you a perfectly rounded dot without a point. The beaded borders are done with a blue silicone fondant mold.
The mother of the groom owns a glass blowing store in Manitou and she made the perfect cake top for this abstract design.
Thank you, Liz and Eric, for letting me be a part of your special day.
