Special Series: Powder Blue and Nude Cake
Posted by Shira Savada
When I first saw the work of Gabby from Cake Coquette, I was smitten (and suddenly craving sweets). I instantly knew she'd be a great addition to our special series. Gabby put together this ruffled confection perched atop a Danish-table-inspired stand. Along with great floral arrangements and hors d'oeuvres by Sebastian Parker, Sharla Flock, and Thomas John Events, this gallery of stunning images by Lisa Lefkowitz contains examples of all of their handiwork.
1 This waves on this cake give it a great texture.
2 Sharla Flock created this bouquet using lambs' ear leaves to add softness. The raffia wrapped stems bring in touches of nude.
3 This sweet floral arrangement sits in a wood bowl. It's a great way to tie in the natural materials of the cake stand.
4 Check out these blueberry shooters with pulled blueberry sugar garnishes.
5 Thomas John created these small filo dough tartlets. Their almond, blue cheese, and blueberry filling looks amazing.
6 Proscuitto-wrapped brie with chive sprigs and a blueberries would be easy to serve during the cocktail hour.
7 Two of the masterminds behind this series: Gabby from Cake Coquette and her brother, Sebastian, who designed and created the sleek cake stand.
8 The cake stand was constructed from light wood.
