I like to showcase a lot of different options, so the bride has a good idea of what's available to her. Textured buttercream finishes are becoming really popular, so I finished all three with different buttercream looks. The cake on the right is vanilla bean cake with whipped American vanilla bean frosting and a gum paste fantasy peony-type flower. The cake in the center is a chocolate cake with caramel French buttercream in a piped design, with chocolate ganache chevron pattern. The cake on the right is red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting in a rustic texture finish with a modeling chocolate sunflower and leaves.
The bride and the tasting party loved all the cakes, and ended up choosing all the flavors, one for each tier.
