Defying Gravity with Monkeys, Paisleys and Blood Red Callas

This week at Sheri's Edible Designs was geometrically influenced. The cakes created for the weekend were anything but round. Not that we don't enjoy the round wedding cake, I love them all equally.

I had a group of creative clients this week. Clients whom did not want a traditional cake, but rather something that says "You've never seen this at a wedding before!"

Congratulations to the ones who took the plunge, both in life and in cake design!

Amy and George-Daufuskie Island Resort- Daufuskie Island, SC

Amy and George had a wedding cake as well as a grooms cake. The wedding cake was a 4 tiered square with one offset tier. It was a butter cream finish with various beads and piping and a coral colored fondant ribbon border. The grooms cake is a story all its own- George is a combat engineer in the explosives field for USMC and a graduate of Texas A&M University. Texas is also his home state. He LOVES bananas and had been given the nickname Curious George. His grooms cake was Curious George sitting on top a pile of bananas wearing a cowboy hat and cowboy boots along with a banana which was actually a stick of dynamite. I hope he loved it! The flavor was Chocolate Banana!

Kristin and Ryan- Port Royal Golf Club- Hilton Head Island, SC

Kristin and Ryan's wedding was Style Style Style. Chocolate Brown and various shades of greens filled the room. The decor and setting were perfect pairs for the season. Kristin wanted a cake which resembled and included the paisley patterns through out her wedding. The Invitations, Save the Dates, Custom Designed Logo, Menus and Place Cards all included this pattern and color scheme. We have worked together for almost a year creating the perfect design. Congratulations Kristin and Ryan!

Holly and Eric- Indigo Hall in Indigo Run Plantation- Hilton Head Island, SC

Holly and Eric are great! Holly (and forgive me Holly) is hard to please (and she knows it) but I love her!

She has simple tastes but wants the best simple you can get. She came to me with a vision of a tall cake, a cake that is unusual but not crazy and a cake that will make you say 'Is that the cake?"

Well, I think we did it Holly! This cake is a 3 tiered hexagon with a butter cream finish, black fondant ribbon borders, sugar calla lily stems running up through the center, and large blood red sugar calla lilies atop the cake. It was nerve wracking but so worth the end result. Lets just say you won't be seeing many more of these from Sheri's Edible Designs :) for a little while at least! Congratulations Holly and Eric!
