I see a theme for the week happening here – taking something traditional and putting a spin on it…
A lot of our clients have their receptions in the grand hotels of New York City. The Plaza, The New York Palace and The St. Regis are to name a few that we bring wedding cakes to each week. All of these beautiful ballrooms have the most gorgeous gilded details. We have a lot of clients that love to be inspired by these kinds of details from architecture and see them on their cakes. The intricate detail of our molds looks beautiful in an antique gold or silver color.
When we met with our bride Molly, who was having her reception at The New York Palace, she loved the architectural details in the building. Molly and her fiancé decided on a more intimate party for their reception and there was no need for a very large cake. Although they loved the gilding in the building, Molly felt that it might be a little to “heavy” on her wedding cake to have antique gold details.
So rather than using gold or silver, we changed it up a bit and used white pearl shimmer. The shimmer brings out all of the details on the molds but still maintains that “old world” style. This freshens up the cake giving it more of a modern twist.
