I have been asked to do the 10th anniversary cake for my hairdresser's salon. It is very upscale and trendy, always tons of fresh flowers at all of the stations, etc.
Anyway, they want a cake for approx 50 and want it over the top with bright bold colours and gumpaste flowers. Budget is not an option. They want to coordinate the salon's flowers to the cake for the anniversary party so they need to be realistic rather than whimsy.
I have been pouring over pictures looking for an idea to run with, but everything looks either too wedding-ish or like a birthday cake.
what about a cake that looks like a modernistic vase with flowers in it??
would require carving and stacking
this one even adds the possibility of a round cake as its base
not twisted but....
just make clear areas white like they were in the original paintings
and there's this:
oval cakes stacked and carved? (would look elegant with a single large calla lily in it)
a 3-piece cake? -- wouldn't this be unique
Wow! Thanks for all of the pics!
What about using sugar tiles somehow? Maybe cover your cakes with square tiles and then lay some gumpaste flowers on top like a casual bouquet.
