The Wedding Library: Caribbean Island Wedding, Part 5
Posted by theweddinglibrary
I love a "bare" cake. It acts as a great backdrop to design a variety of bolder looks. And, in the heat of St. Lucia, I learned: The simpler, the better.
I often add non-edible decor to my cakes, and this was no exception. Use your imagination and incorporate crafting items, decorating sugar, paper products, and monograms to complete your beautiful confection. Take a look at how I did it in the gallery below!
1 I used cardboard letters to create the different cakes.
2 I also brought along some satin ribbon in my favorite color!
3 The top is decorated with confectioners' sprinkles. I painstakingly removed the colors I didn't like from the mix, but the final look made it totally worth it.
4 Kate Greiner made lovely and delicate paper and thread garlands. I hung them around the ceremony site as well.
