Whimsical Wedding Cake


Cake by Sugar Blooms and Cakes by Genevieve in Winnipeg

From the designer: “The inspiration of this cake came from Barong Tagalog fabric – a traditional, embroidered material from the Philippines. It is worn for big occasions of celebration such as weddings. We wanted to capture the simplistic beauty of the fabric and highlight the elegance of the embroidery and showcase a wedding cake that represents our Filipino roots. We used Rosals, a Filipino flower, similar to an open rose, and cake toppers portraying a couple dressed in traditional Filipino garments. The type of bride that would best suite this wedding cake would be one who may not have grown up in the Philippines, but holds her Filipino heritage close to her heart. She is a bride who wants something different for her wedding cake, and not the usual cake trends that we tend to see during the wedding season. The three tiers are all covered in fondant. The middle tier has an additional covering of edible wafer paper. Royal icing and gum paste were used for the embroidery details, and painted with gold edible paint. Edible wafer paper was also used to make the Rosals and the cake toppers were made of gum paste.”
