Detail photography spotlight again!
This cake was from a wedding in June 2008.. but I've always loved the close up detail shots, so I figure it's about time to share!
This was a really cool cake to do, just very time and labor intensive! It was inspired by a Martha Stewart cake.
Each individual petal was piped in meringue, baked, assembled into flowers and held together with more meringue, then re-baked!
The flowers were made from around 7 different shades of white, ivory, silver, and pink. Rather than being a load of frosting flowers all over this cake.. it was frosted with brown sugar Swiss meringue buttercream, then covered in these crispy meringues!
