White Roses with Ivory Drapes Wedding Cake
The Terrace in the Sky restaurant in Manhattan was the venue for an elegant New York wedding celebration.
The bride asked me recreate a hexagonal ivory colored cake that she loved, which had white sugar roses and hydrangeas. The four tiers of red velvet cake have a raspberry buttercream filling and a thin layer of raspberry preserves. Each tier is covered in an ivory fondant, a series of scrolls are piped in icing and then adorned with fondant drapes. I added some leaves to give the colors a contrast, and the base of the cake is surrounded by ivory fondant pearls.
This was truly was a white wedding, the cake was delivered through a blizzard!
