I am doing my best friends wedding cake. She is wanting it to resemble a tree or stump. They are avid outdoor people, so she wants it to be non-traditional, ywt be able to tell its the wedding cake and not the grooms cake??? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
There is that famous Debbie Brown tree stump cake. Many people have done that one. Maybe you could use it as a resource. I cant remember which book it was in right now.
have you done a search in the galleries>
Paper birch comes to mind as a tree with "white" bark, biut I don't know if it grows as far south as Arkansas! A quick google search will turn up many photos.
If they are avid naturalists, perhaps some gumpaste or fondant trillium or viburnum flowers (white) -- authentic reproductions of native wildflowers would probably really be popular. The Arkanas state flower is the cherry blossom. So, maybe a cherry tree/branch in palest pink and white?
I made a "log cake" with meringue mushrooms -- but do put them on at the last moment, as they absorb humidity from other icings.
I hope this helps a bit.
