Ombre Love!

Ombre the gradual "fade" from one color to another, generally brighter and richer colors to lighter and more muted tones.  We are big fans of this technique and it has been a great way to tie together different design elements. Here are some cakes we've done with this effect!
This cake was for a modern Southern wedding at The MEZZ. The bride used a spectrum of purples and the cake was a great way to tie them all together! 

This outdoor summer wedding used the crisp contrast whites and yellows. The simplicity of the texture and no-fuss white florals on top was perfect for this Cypress Grove Estate House wedding.

This twilight stargazer cake was for a wedding at The Orlando Science Center (how fitting!).  The couple wanted to show the evening sky, but chose brighter blues in their color scheme.  The answer to what color the cake should be: both!  Ombred!

 This bride simply wanted a pretty cake.  This rose cake is a favorite of ours, and we accented each tier with pearlized lace.  She used pink in the reception decor, but wanted just a touch of color on her cake.  The answer: an ombre center to the flower!

This bridal shower cake used a subtle ombre of a darker pink on the sides to give the cake design a bit more dimension on the buttercream rosettes.
