Adrienne Cake

Adrienne Cake

This is the cake I made for a beautiful bride named Adrienne.

Gorgeous isn’t she?

Adrienne had a clear vision about what she wanted from the beginning but at the last minute decided to change the tiers to all square and when I arrived at the wedding, her florist had set aside some bright green orchids rather than red poppies! Oh well, good thing I work well under pressure :)

Her wedding was at the Willamette Valley Vineyards here in Salem, OR so she wanted something grand enough to match the gorgeous ballroom it was being held in.

Since I used to be a graphic designer before I delved into the wonderful world of cake design, I conveniently know how to use very helpful programs such as Adobe Illustrator. So I am able to convey exactly what the bride and I discuss during the consultation into a clear illustration that she can make changes to if she wants AND it makes a great keepsake for the bride.

This is the sketch we came up with:

This is the final cake design.

I really like how the quilting turned out and the green orchids actually matched their pretty table centerpieces which had these little green pom pom type flowers in them.
