Square with Roses

One of four dummy cakes made for 2018 wedding fairs.

This one came about because I had made a customer’s wedding cake (heart shaped with roses) and got a bit carried away making roses!  Not wanting to waste the leftover flowers, and loving the customer’s chosen colours so much,  I thought it would make an interesting contrast to the other cakes on the stand and it was, in fact, the only square cake that I had in my wedding fair display.  To make it different from the customer order, I added the piped dot patterns on each tier and a little cake lace amongst the flowers too.  You can’t really make it out from the photos, but the base colour of this cake is a soft ivory, rather than a bright white.
