Wedding Cake of the Year Competition

Well, this post is bitter sweet for me. I designed a cake for the wedding cake competition of the year hosted by Cake Central in Washington. I discovered this morning that the file containing my information and photos did not get sent properly over the internet causing me to miss the deadline. Since I am unable to enter the contest this year (there is always next year!!) I am going to share the cake creation I made with all my viewers...YAY!! I have had to be secretive about this cake and could not post it ANYWHERE (according to contest regulations) which means there are many fans I have that know about what I have been up to but have not been able to see "it" yet.


Background
It all started with a flower.....one of my favorite Spring flowers, the tulip. The color scheme came next, bright Spring greens and tangerines. These colors scream Spring to me when everything in the world is fresh and new. I then sketched out my design on paper so I had a visual to build from.

Then I began the process of making, bulding, and decorating this Spring garden inspired wedding cake. Enjoy!!

Just covered the cake in fondant and stacked the pieces together

The completed wedding cake in all its glory! 

This cake was a labor of love and one that I believe captures my love of fondant cakes and the Spring Season!  I cannot wait for the wedding cake competition next year.  Let the planning begin!!

  1. This is gorgeous! I haven't ever seen anything like it which I think will be so important for this competition. Good Luck, although I believe you really don't need it!
