our creative space . . . 'instant cake decorating'

Greetings all,
An oldie but a goodie, when you need to decorate a cake, instantly - add fresh flowers.  It's Spring & there is so much choice for stunning fresh flowers, but how beautiful is a single, perfect, red rose??  Even better on a chocolate on chocolate cake!!
Our wedding cake was a large square chocolate mud cake with a smaller square on top, on an angle, with white chocolate ganache icing & a trio of oriental lillies on top, da dah!!  So pretty, simple & effective.  More creativity?? 
That's all folks, it's been a loooong day, love Posie

Hi Posie

I love the simplicity - and I will take that one and it will go straight to the pool room (it's a keeper)

Your wedding cake sounded perfect too.

Oh i wish, the cake was for a friend in birthday denial, so not for my lips or hips!!

My wedding cake was two round cakes with a trio of red roses on top. Simple but stunning I thought.

Take care Jennie and get some rest!

OUr wedding cake was chocolate and sprinkled with rose petals. My grandmother-in-law disapproved heartily of the chocolate cake - but neither my husband nor I eat fruit cake. That said, we didn't actually get to eat any anyway:)

Agnes said...

Brilliant! I think some flowers are edible.

Mama of 2 boys said...

Haha! What a fabulous tip Posie. Looks beautiful! I have never thought of fresh flowers for my cakes, but they would look stunning. On cupcakes too! Thanks for this one :o) xo
