{Cake Inspiration} Pretty Croquembouche with Spun Sugar

The historical French croquembouche with it’s majestic design and historical origins, will always come in and out of vogue for weddings. We’re seeing a bit of a comeback of late – just like this gorgeous creation from an equally stunning handmade Sydney wedding. I love how the over-the-top design is toned down by displaying it on a rustic-style timber log. And the use of spun sugar and teeny-tiny white flowers give it a magical and whimsical look – a lovely mix of organic, glam and pretty. I expect we will see more croquembouche’s inspired by this year’s glamorous wedding trend making an appearance.

{Cake Inspiration} 1920s Couture Inspired Wedding Cake

Inspired by a intricate rose pattern from a Parisian 1920s Zimmermann couture dress this stunning hand-painted wedding cake is more like a piece of collector’s artwork than a slice of indulgence. Whichever way you look at it, it truly is a French fantasy as far as we’re concerned.

And here’s the 1920s Zimmerman dress I found which helped bring the delectable confectionery to life:

{Cake Inspiration} Peach and White Wedding Cake

Peach and white is a classic combination which immediately brings to mind romance and charm – which is everything this stunning wedding cake is!  The soft pretty vintage shade of peach is kept modern and fresh with a large floral pattern and single white bloom for decoration. I discovered this pretty concoction on HWTM as part of a gorgeous ‘sweet as peach’ dessert table (which is also divine). Clearly this vintage inspired stunner would be a winner for a peach garden wedding or bridal shower. It would also marry beautifully with a pretty peach letterpress suite such as this.
