Better Know a Group: Cake Decorators Unite!

I was checking out the posts on TeamSugar when I came across this one in the Cake Decorators Unite! group. Group founder ashleyk4214 really stepped up her game and created this gorgeous cake for a wedding this past weekend. It's a French vanilla cake with blueberry filling and vanilla buttercream icing. That sounds delicious enough, but my favorite part is actually the cascading white roses, hydrangeas and creeping ivy. See more photos, just

This cake was made for a wedding on Saturday, March 8th, 2008. The cake was french vanilla with blueberry filling and vanilla buttercream icing. The outside of the cake was decorated with a scrollwork on the sides and a thin line of ribbon which had a border of green pearls at the base of each ribbon. The topper of the cake was custom made with three white roses surrounded by green and blue hydrangeas and pieces of ivy. The entire cake had a cascade of white roses, green and blue hydrangeas, and creeping ivy. I tried to get the ribbon and icing pearl colors as close to the color of the green hydrangeas as possible.

I make tasty cakes that are not pleasing to look at. The wedding cakes that I have made needed to be covered up with fresh flowers! That cake is beautiful. If joining a this group can help the appearance of my cakes then I am all in!

Thanks everyone! This one certainly involved a learning process as I have never used this many flowers before, but I think it turned out really great! Radarkitty, I'm sorry that happened to your cake, I made a cake a couple of years ago for a friend of mine who got married in September in Georgia and the cake was sitting outside. After being outside for about 2 hours, I could just see it starting to fade and lean a little, so I hurried to the caterer and let her know it was now or never to cut that sucker! That was one of my first cakes and I now know that I should have put a large supporting dowel straight down the middle of the whole cake. It was a good learning experience for me though! :faint:
