For minimalists at heart or for brides who covet the classicism of an all white wedding cake, we’re in love with the stunning simplicity of sparing botanicals. Dressed simply with a cascade of peonies or sugar dusted fruits, these classic shapes, styled with the restraint of one or two decorative elements only, offer an elegant (delicious) purity.
More contemporary and romantic than traditional ‘classic’ decorations (satin ribbons or decorative icing patterns), these cakes hint at a more natural origin, and offer surfaces that still bear the traces of being sculpted and applied by hand. And it’s these beautiful irregularities that give this classicism a new face, while feeling infinitely more appetising than an immaculate marzipan cylinder, so perfect you’re not sure if its edible!
