The large fondant flower and draping are hand done and very unique. I have never seen this type of sugar flower before. By playing around with fondant and imagining it is fabric in your hands you can create flowers and shapes of all kinds.
Cake Stacker's were used for this four tiered beauty.
Look for details in the fabric of your gown and consider incorporating them into the design of your cake.

For the Groom
Do you have a hobby or activity that you would
like to express your passion for? Make a list of possibilities no matter how crazy they
seem. Here is an example of what the possibilities are. A bride and groom mountain climbing couple asked me to design a
cake that looked like a mountain with a tiny bride and groom and the
entire wedding party climbing it.
Think about the setting at which the ceremony will take place. By the
ocean? You might want to design your own wedding cake around a beach or a tropical theme. Link to more ideas for beach themed cakes.
The cake below is another great example of a design inspired by the brides gown. The dress was made of horizontal strips of satin fabric. It is a made using fondant a.k.a. sugar paste, and is the perfect substitute for a satin fabric look.
There are no limits to design ideas. Your wedding cake should be a reflection of you and your significant other. Here are some tips to get your creative juices flowing:
Start clipping out pictures from magazines of designs that you like. The don't have to be a cake pictures, they can be literally anything.
