Recently I’ve done quite a number of desserts and cakes around the theme of SUMMER with fun and bright colours! I thought it’d be nice to share with you a compilation of these cakes, hopefully, to inspire and help anyone during times where they want to order a cake but don’t know where to start.
- Tutti Frutti
This was a cake inspired by ‘TUTTI FRUTTI’ theme! I really like this design because usually, most cakes on this theme would be decorated into a bottom tier, matched with a pineapple decorated to on top. However, the client and I decided to take a twist on the design and came up with adding painted fruits onto the bottom tier with a watermelon colour scheme as the background. (P.S. the painted fruits and pineapple top are fully edible!)
I painted each fruit by hand and gave a good variety of fruits. As I was assembling the cake, the colours came together beautifully and felt like the cake really seamlessly fitted into the party’s theme, design and set up!
2. Rose Gold Florals
I really feel this cake emulates my personal style as I LOVE rose gold 😍 it’s really my favourite metallic shade. Inspired by a rose gold theme, the cake was finished with a watercolour effect (light link) and a cascading rose gold foil to draw the eye up towards the flower wreath and macarons.
The small daisies and green foliage also gave a touch of contrast and also gave the eye breaks in between the overall pink colour scheme.
3. Flower Basket
This was one of the latest floral cakes I made, specially using Korean glossy buttercream instead of Swiss meringue buttercream. Inspired by flower bouquets, I arranged the flowers (peonies, roses, hydrangeas and chrysanthemum) in a dome-like shape! The cake was also finished with a rustic swirl to give off an organic and pottery-clay vase look.
Thank you for reading!
Till next time,
