I mentioned this in the past but one of my favorite parts of making a cake is when I have creative freedom on decorating it. I love applying new and different techniques so it makes the artist in me so happy when I'm given that flexibility. This cake was originally going to have just the flowers and ribbon border but I thought about adding a molding technique to the cake sides. I asked the bride if I can move forward with this design and she told me to go for it. This wasn't surprising as she was one of the most easy-going sweet clients I ever had the pleasure of working with!
The end result: 4 tiered square cake with hydrangeas and orchids, a lavendar ribbon border and baroque style molding on the sides.
