The trend of simplistic wedding cake designs continues and I love it! This cake is so perfect as is, any changes would be detrimental.
Pêche Petite made this wedding cake for a very special couple, Windy and Rob. They love cake just as much as we do! After the initial consultation, Windy emailed us a detailed analysis of the tasting, commenting on moisture, texture, frosting, and flavor nuances of the samples. It was great to have so much feedback, and such a positive review from a fellow cake enthusiast! Windy & Rob are also near and dear to us, because they were the first couple to have a tasting with us at Studio1658, and they brought a whole crew of family members to our anniversary party for extended cake tasting. We love people who love cake!
The wedding was held at a relative’s home, and they took advantage of the natural beauty from the backyard trees to create a lovely ceremony site.
I love the floral arrangements Windy’s mom made! They are just bursting with beautiful flowers like hydrangeas, roses, and snapdragons. The sprigs of rosemary in the greenery were a nice touch and added a pleasing aroma.
This type of natural, uncomplicated decor required a cake with a similar aesthetic. Paige made a simple texture design on the tiers and let the gorgeous soft pink peonies take centerstage. I’ve seen textured cakes that have almost too much texture and resemble stucco, resulting in a rustic, shabby chic feel. Here, Paige employed wide strokes of frosting to create a more refined, elegant look. Having large smooth areas of frosting lends a lightness to the cake and it doesn’t look overworked. It looks classy and timeless.
Groom’s cakes should be fun and Rob’s golf ball cake definitely is! Paige did a great job mimicking the surface texture of the ball, and the Titleist logo completed the look.
Cheers Windy & Rob!!
save room for cake! xoxo Erin B. pastry chef
