Having a drop dead gorgeous cake for your wedding isn't enough! You need to make sure that the styling of your cake--where it's located, what's around it, how it's displayed--is on point too! You've got to create a vignette, something that tells a story.
The one pictured above was created by Shishi Events and combines a stunning five-tier fondant cake with roundish florals on candlesticks, sitting atop rustic wooden crates. The juxtaposition of the elegant refinement of the cake and flowers with the rugged and worn effects of the aged wooden crates gives a lush romantic bespoke quality. The flowers look fresher, more alive next to old wood. The cake looks decadent and moist next to the dryness of the wood.
This is how you set up a cake for your outdoor wedding. Yes--there are tons of other ways to have compelling style--but this one stands out as a real winner!
