A BED OF ROSES


Yet it had been another busy and luvly weekend, as always. Weekend is the time when I put on my thinking cap and start designing the next coming cakes or client’s cakes. I love flowers in a big way and my favourite flower will always be the roses. They come in many shapes, sizes and colours such as, white, champange, deep red, orange and a few more yet to mention.

Cakes and flowers had been alway being paired together in many ways. One day, I really got so excited when I read about Keiko’s work where she paired her cake with fresh flowers, such as roses. It was gorgeous and so lovely, yet touching, even with readers like myself and I just can’t imagine the one who is on the receiving end.

So last saturday night, I got to deliver a special ordered cake to M.E. & R.T., as they were having their family wedding dinner at one of the restaraunt in KLCC. Well, I guessed it will be a great chance to come up with something special and unique to make the bride and bridgroom happy before they go for their 2 months honeymoon in France.

I decided to do a Bed of Roses Cake for them. This cake consist of nearly 40 buds of imported champange coloured roses, a doubled layer marble honey cake with buttercream and lots of white chocolate squares. It was a great fun when it comes to the arrangment of the roses as it was rather challenging but we did it.

This time I would not say it is easy or even simple to make but I would put it as “It was a great fun and worth the time”.

Love Sunny Yaw

    Such lovely champagne roses! Now isn’t this more fun than just plain roses when one want to propose marriage?? 😀

    But how does one clean the flowers of pesticides? I like the idea of fresh flowers on cakes but have always avoided doing so because of pesticides.

    Sorry for being on d silent mode but I am back.

    Kelly: We ae also cute too.

    ka..t: It sounds great to use then for a propose marriage!

    tigerfish: Sounds like Forrest Gum. :)

    melting_work: it does not cost a bomb for sure!

    joe: the best part of this design really kills my head; the roses do not have any contact with the cake itself. Great right! And also for you to find out.

    lyrical lemongrass: the cake is a 2 layered honey marble cake with buttercream.

    boo_licious: You are defintely right and spot on. I would recommend this design as a few tiers wedding cake.

    oh for the love of food: thanks.
