This will go down as one of my favorite cakes from 2022.
I met with Avery and her mom and we spoke about her wedding and their vision for what they were looking for and I was sold. Classic, elegant, black and white, touches of gold. I did end up creating all of the desserts on their dessert table, minus the cookies, as I was testing out if they were possibilities for me to add as options for clients in the future. I created macarons, cupcakes, cake pops and chocolate covered strawberries along with their three tier cake.
Avery provided a photo inspiration for her wedding cake that was two tiers but we knew that she wanted a three tier and it had to be covered in fondant to have this draped design. The interesting thing about creating a drape cake like this one is that a lot of the time you have no idea what the final result is really going to look like. You have to let the medium move and dictate direction. Maybe it wants to lay a certain way and one spot looks better tall or with more movement. That’s exactly what I did with Avery & Cooper’s bespoke wedding cake. I stacked the entire cake first and then started with the bottom tier and worked my way up. Layering fondant pieces, using toothpicks to help set certain pieces that I knew I wanted to hold their shape. A lot of standing back, evaluating and deciding to either leave a section or add more.
I delivered to Stonebridge Manor by Wedgewood Weddings and the wedding cake design was so in sync with the rest of the wedding, it was beautiful. All coordinated by Hudson Grey Weddings (Instagram) and photographed by Miranda Harper Photography (Website + Instagram). It was honestly the perfect vendor team. I have a Reel on my Instagram with more of a look at the rest of the wedding set up!
