A Spring Custom Wedding Cake | Manhattan, NYC

In June we designed a custom wedding cake for a worldly couple celebrating their marriage at a private venue in Manhattan, NYC. 

Since the bride and groom were working overseas up until the week of the wedding, Ana worked with both of them long-distance to design a custom cake that fit their style and wedding theme. The resulting wedding cake was a beautiful classic & elegant design with great details and lush sugar flowers. 

The bride and groom selected their favorite cake and filling flavors for each of the five tiers. After the cakes were filled, each tier of this custom wedding cake was finished with meringue buttercream and white vanilla fondant, a standard practice at Ana Parzych Cakes

After the fondant was applied, each tier was painted with gold pearl dust for a beautiful finish.

The classic design utilized Ana's specialty of creating freehand brushed embroidery designs on each tier of the five-tiered cake. The brushed embroidery was hand painted with pearl dust. 

The bride personalized the design further by choosing a gum paste monogram framed with a fondant pearl border. The monogram represents the first initials of the bride and groom.

The base tier of the cake boasted a lush array of handcrafted sugar flowers, including peach peonies, dahlias, garden roses, white freesias, and light green hydrangeas. 

The sugar flowers coordinated so well with the beautiful centerpieces by Bardin Palomo .

The photo is as timeless as the cake design.
