Rustic Roses And Succulents

A Wedding Cake for a lovely young couple. This is the first time I make succulents. I must admit that the whole cake was totally out of my comfort zone. I've never done rustic buttercream before. Nevertheless, I think the bride made a lovely combination of colors and textures. The request for the design was entirely hers. I tried to execute it the best I could.

@SandraSmiley I know it doesn't seem like I was stressed. You should have seen me panting and freaking in panic the whole morning yesterday. Fortunately, I was praying as I was working...It worked wonders!


The pictures do not do this cake justice!  It came out beautifully - exactly what my daughter requested for her special day!  Beautiful ruffly detail on the roses and the succulents were spot-on, all matching her bouquet.  And not just pretty to look at - it was delicious too.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
