i discovered this photo while seeking inspiration for a spring wedding recently, and it caught my breath — romantic. delicate. just utterly stunning. in fact, this cake was selected by the editors of brides magazine as one of america's 50 most beautiful cakes in 2008. guess i'm not alone in loving it.
expertly designed by wildflower custom cakes, it has four sage tiers of green rolled fondant, decorated in the style of the french milles fleurs. a grosgrain finish to the fondant is probably my favorite touch. it sets off the tiny handmade peaches, pears, apple blossoms, leaves and berries with a soft, vintage feel.
i love me a modern cake, but sometimes, a classic is just untouchable.
