Greenwich, CT Custom Wedding Cake with Brushed Embroidery

Two weeks ago we delivered a cake to  a wonderful couple's reception at Burning Tree Country Club in Greenwich.

The leaves and floral detail on Karen and Chris's invitation, designed by Smock, provided inspiration for the wedding cake design.

As you can see, the brushed embroidery detail on the sketch of the wedding cake imitates the design on the invitation.

The sugar peonies accenting the wedding cake design bring to life the flowers in the invitation detail as well.

After seeing the sketch, Karen asked if we could include some of the cream flowers as well.  

Brushed embroidery is a great technique to add a design element, taken from inspiration, to the tiers of the cake. The design is subtle against white fondant, as seen here, or can be bolder against colored fondant. Either way, brushed embroidery is a beautiful addition to any cake!
