We are thrilled to have a full-page feature in (201) Bride Magazine! We were asked to design a cake around The Princess and the Pea fairytale. Every bride wants a fairytale wedding, but today that “story” is told with elegance and sophistication. We’ve created a fairytale cake for a contemporary bride -- with clean lines and a fun twist on this classic tale.
Each tier is embossed with myriad patterns to represent the tower of mattress from the story. Sugar flowers proliferate the cake -- all which gives the impression of peas – sweet peas and tendrils (they have a pea shape in the center of the flower which is then covered by three petals, which is very like a pea under all the mattresses) and a succulent named string of pearls (which looks like a vine of peas, but are very delicate and pretty). The cake sits on a silk skirted base to represent the bedskirt. The tier heights vary to give further visual interest to the cake.
The first picture is a scan from the magazine (we'll try to get a clearer image to post) and the second one is one we took.
