Paisley Print Wedding Cake

When I asked this bride what was her favorite design element of her wedding, she quickly answered this print. She used this paisley print she found on ETSY from Two Yellow Shoes on her invitations and other stationery. After some amateur graphic design getting a 1" x 3" triangle shaped image into a solid band.....I printed the design on edible paper with edible ink. I wanted to incorporate the sugar gardenia as a topper because this bride along with many others always confess they really want gardenias and magnolias in their wedding flowers. Good florists always recommend against this because of the rapid browning of these flowers...... so a sugar gardenia can capture a dash of Southern charm in the style of the wedding.
