White Peacock Wedding Cake
This cake was - by far - my favorite of the wedding cakes we've done. The cake has some of the white-on-white curly piping that's popular on many traditional wedding cakes. Instead of just leaving it at that, however, we added white, gumpaste peacocks with pearly feathers. I can't wait to give this cake another go. The next time I do it, I want to have the two peacocks sitting on the top with their feathery tails cascading down opposite sides of the cake. It's going to be stunning! I can't wait for someone to order another cake like this.
I have to draw attention to something freaky in the picture: doesn't it look like the cake is magically floating off the table. I swear it wasn't Photoshopped - just my poor photography skills, folks! The flowers on top were beautiful, purple gerbera daisies.
This cake was a traditional design - swirly, white piping on a white cake with white ribbon - that we funked up a little with pearly dragees. (You know those silver balls that you see on cakes sometimes and wonder, "Are those edible?" They are. And they're called dragees.) I probably would've added a thousand more swirlies but Sydney is good about reminding me that "less is more" and that I needn't add every curly accessory I can find just because I can.
