3tiers - Modern Cake Design » Wedding Cakes

The Talia Cake

A modern couple, a modern cake.

talia-opt2When given creative license on the design of a cake, it is a Designer’s dream.  These friends of ours are a super modern, creative pair.  I based the design of their cake on one of my favourite textile designers, Amy Butler’s, ‘Midwest Modern’ pattern called ‘Martini’.  I thought the colours would also compliment their purple colour scheme.

The reception was held at a swanky venue overlooking the Rideau Canal, the night and the Bride and Groom were so beautiful.  And the cake fit right in!


The Tesia Cake

A tailored and classic Black and White wedding, what could be more beautiful?

tesia-final

Well, the Bride of course!  She is a lovely friend, whose friendship dates back to Elementary School.  She married the love of her life and requested a white cake with black detailing for the event, which was held at an Ottawa heritage establishment.

Handmade, edible black anemone sugar flowers adorned the top tier and gave this beauty its finishing touch.

Flavours:

  • Bottom tier: Marble cake with Chocolate Buttercream
  • Middle tier: Vanilla cake with Fresh Lemon Curd
  • Top tier: Marble cake with Chocolate Buttercream

The Katrina Cake

A dear friend married her sweetheart and I was lucky enough to design her cake, Carte Blanche. It was an outdoor wedding at her family cottage therefore the ‘Homage to Cottage’ which this cake became. They are both artful people, and I knew I could do something a little out of the ordinary for them.

Enter ‘The Katrina Cake’.

A ‘Cottage Blue’ background with Monarch Orange flowers.  Trina and I used to hunt for Monarch butterflies in the summer at the Cottage as children, and it still, to this day, is one of my fondest summer childhood memories.

Flavours:

  • Bottom tier: Chocolate cake with Chocolate Buttercream
  • Top tier: Vanilla cake with Vanilla Buttercream

The Melissa Cake

Such a simple yet gorgeous cake! One of my favourites, for sure.

I loved working with this bride and groom! The bride is a long-time friend who is very crafty and creative. Their wedding conveyed their whimsical style. My first “out-of’-town” cake took me 3.5 hours to Peterborough, ON.

I incorporated the design from the RSVP card into the piped Juniper Green royal icing on the cake with a few leaves to tie in the wedding invitation design. The purple ribbon adds in their accent colour nicely. A perfect harmony of the wedding colours and graphic design! The fluted silver cup is a family heirloom which is usually a cake topper, we decided to change things up a bit!

Flavours:

  • Top, middle and bottom tiers: Marble cake with vanilla buttercream



The KATHY Cake

A beautiful cake for a beautiful bride. This 3-tier white fondant draped cake with teal satin ribbon was topped with fresh white roses and pearl sprays. I added a handmade subtle wire heart to reaffirm the days message of everlasting love.

The LAURA Cake


I had so much fun with this cake! The bride was an energetic and creative friend who gave me pretty much free reign on the design. Wow, what a compliment!

Chocolate fondant with iridescent sugarpaste flowers piled high to the sky! This 4-tier beauty coordinated well with decor and was stunning in the Grand Hall at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa.

    Flavours:

  • Upper top tier: 4″ vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Top tier: 6″ vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Middle tier: 10″ vanilla cake with fresh strawberries and strawberry truffle filling
  • Bottom tier: 14″ vanilla cake with chocolate truffle filling

Tasty Tasters

I usually don’t do tastings.  Reason?  I don’t bake cakes every week and for me to do a tasting, it would take forever. However, when a friend and Client was coming up especially from Bermuda to plan her wedding, it was a special circumstance which warranted a special cake.

trial-final

Flavour:

6″ tier: Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling


The LEANNE Cake

An all buttercream “fluffy” cake for one of my longest friends. Sparkles were a request, you may notice the shimmer on all three tiers! All handmade sugar flowers painted with edible pearl dust.

Flavours:

  • Top tier 6″ - vanilla with fresh lemon curd
  • Middle tier 10″ - chocolate with rich chocolate buttercream
  • Bottom tier 14″ - vanilla with fresh lemon curd

The KAT Cake

The theme was daisies!

I came up with this 3-tier beauty incorporating the theme in fresh white wired daisies as well as the wedding colour in a satin ribbon. The ribbon broke up the white with a jazz of colour. A perfect combination for “tying the knot”!
