Tiffany Tile Pattern

When I met with Alex and Ron to design their wedding cake, I asked them what their favorite thing about the wedding was... and Alex quickly answered the invitation!  They loved the detailed pattern of the tile pattern in tiffany blue & deeper blue and was especially drawn to the masculine chocolate brown lines.

Although the idea for the sketch seems simplistic, the piping sure was not! In order to get the level of detail in the invitation I would use a royal icing and invert the pattern.  To top it off, we made a custom "AR" topper with intertwining lines as their monogram. For gay couples and couples where the bride is not taking the grooms last name I recommend using the first name initials for the monogram.  It keeps the traditional feel of a monogram, but customized to the modern couple!

 An voila, our detailed modern Tiffany Tile pattern cake.
