I'm always pleased if I can get frosting on a cake without the whole thing falling apart or the frosting melting onto the plate so am impressed by the skill of folks who can create cakes that are level and have smooth frosting. The floral delights represented at the show are mind boggling to me. Desert (dessert) blooms graced not one but two offerings. "Southwestern Garden Flowers" by LUC Custom Bakery (Seattle)
Celebrity Cake Studio from Tacoma took the theme a step further in "Spring Blooms."
"The First Bloom" by K.J's Cakery Bakery, Kent
Is that bamboo?
"Wine in the Garden" by Finale-Signature Cakes, Maple Valley. The show probably required that flowers be used but for this cake I might have been tempted to use frosting grapes/vines, perhaps intertwined with flowers to compliment the clever wine barrel design. These blooms are all hand-made of sugar but many mistook them for silk.
"Flowers and Bows" by Crème de la Crème in Renton. All of the elements are of fondant or some sort of frosting stuff. Is this a gorgeous and intricate thing or what? Very feminine and pretty! Know any brides looking for a cake idea?
Can you imagine the hours that went into creating all of these flowers?
Do you think that there is actually cake under these creations? Don't know if I could bring myself to actually cut into something like this.
Have a sweet and beautiful weekend!
