Bohemian Elegance

David and Alaina came to our design consultation with their dream cake already in hand! They found this photo from The Knot and loved how it was different, not like any other cake.  They wanted something original, something that would fit with the vibrant personality of their venue, and most of all something that was elegant.
(This amazing cake was made by Nine Cakes in Brooklyn, NY)

We made a couple of design choices to personalize the cake.  Their reception was at The Grand Bohemian Hotel, a modern artsy hotel in downtown Orlando. We pulled in some of the hotels colors of cranberry, eggplant, and lots of metallics to give the cake a more sophisticated feel.  The couple also liked the idea of having the florals in a cascade pattern on the cake.  Aside from design, it was really important to them that the cake be buttercream, no problem!
