      Last September, we created five cakes for the February/March 2016 issue of Brides magazine. All five cakes were different–in shape, style, and design–but each contained a botanical element. Below are the images we used for inspiration, the final cake, and the photo in the mag.brides mag feb march 2016

        

        DARK + MOODY 

      Jewel tones against a chocolate fondant backdrop inspired by Dutch still life. This cake featured sugar flowers, leaves, and blackberries.

       RETRO MODERN 

      Inspired by the hipster renaissance in Palm Spring, this cake had a retro-meets-modern vibe, pairing a vintage pink with wafer paper monstera leaves.monsteraerica obrien monstera leaf cakeerica obrien monstera leaf cake

       

        CHINOISERIE + MAGNOLIA 

      This cake paired a chinoiserie pattern cut out of wafer paper with sugar magnolias.

        MAIDENHAIR FERN 

      To create a dreamy and ethereal look, we cut maidenhair fern out of wafer paper and created lacey leaves with Sugar Veil.

        PIPED FLOWER MANDALA 

      We recreated this flower mandala with royal icing in a subtle color palette.
