Summer of Faux: Vase Cake

Like Marcy Blum, I am always on a treasure hunt for new ideas..... even if I don't know it. Upon receiving "The White Issue" of CeciStyle Magazine (my much anticipated weekly treat), I saw this beautiful white porcelain vase by Lekker Home. Although I must admit, I initially began picturing this vase in my fantasy remodeled kitchen with fresh peonies...... I stopped an realized it was calling out to be made into a wedding cake! I sketched out the first draft, with a lush peony and hydrangea topper, and decided that a contrast of ivory and white would make my interpretation of this pattern stand out. It came to fruition beautifully!

Hope you enjoy!
