Invitation Inspiration

When designing your ideal wedding cake, we take inspiration from many different areas to help tie your cake into your overall theme.  Does your gown or your groomsmen’s vests have a special design?  Are you using special colors in your bridesmaid dresses or flowers?

For this silver and blue wedding, inspiration came from the invitations during the consultation with The Tasteful Cake.

We borrowed the colors from the invitation, pool blue and black, and used them for the double ribbon on the cake.  We then incorporated the branch design, reaching upward from the bottom and stretching down from the top of the cake, just as the invitation does.   The cake was stacked and finished at the reception location.

The branches were first piped out in buttercream, for a more textured effect, and then painted with silver luster.  The cake was displayed on a table draped with black satin, framed by silver-sprayed branches hung with engagement session portraits from Erin Jean Photography, backed by blue to continue the theme.

Let the professionals from Inspired I Do help you find your inspiration and incorporate it into your design.  Share your wedding ideas with us today!
