Molly and Kevin
Molly and Kevin were married in early October. They had lots of beautiful elements planned for their wedding, so designing a cake was a breeze. Their color scheme of Green and Eggplant was a unique and beautiful starting point. Then, they showed me their beautiful invitations from A Milestone Paper Company, with a graphic scroll design in those same colors.
Once we decided to stencil the invitation pattern onto the cake, we finished it with gumpaste peonies in Ivory with green tips, and Eggplant Hydrangeas to bring in that beautiful deep tone.
A few weeks later, Molly came up with the fabulous idea to have us create sugar cookies frosted to replicate the cake. Each one was tagged with a place card, so each guest had a tiny little version of the beautiful cake to take home with them. You know what that means...Mini Stencil! Luckily, one of the Gateaux girls, Jenna got the hang of stenciling cookies right away. I, on the other hand, will stick with the hand-piped stuff.
