Simple, Bold, and Elegant Wedding Cake

I knew from the minute that I saw the inspiration (the bride brought a picture to our tasting from the  sept/oct 2009 issue) for this cake, it was the perfect cake for me to make! The design is bold and elegant. As I piped on the royal icing I realized that it was the painterly aspect of the flowers that I connected with. The bold purple flowers are almost in an impasto style, a painting technique in which very thick paint is applied to the canvas with a palette knife.


  1. wow - this is just amazing - very bold and elegant!

  2. wow, that is absolutely stunning!
    have always been intrigued with painting on!
