whisk me away to somewhere... exotic

We have been so blessed with the wonderful weather this year, but the glorious sunny days almost draw to the end unfortunately... The wet, with some thunderous days are back.  It has been a ultra busy but fun for us this year!  My little boy, Robert, is going to Kindergarten and my not-so-little-anymore James, is going to preschool.  Big adjustment time for my husband and I, as well as for the cake.  I have to unfortunately, take a step back and look after the family first.
Now, back to business :) 
I was approached by our lovely family friend whose daughter is getting married this August.  I was very honored and privileged that she wanted me to make the cake for her daughter's wedding.  She showed me the color that she wanted for the wedding which is deep coral colors with yellow and whisper pink.  Such an exciting colors to work with!  I made some yellow cymbidiums with bright coral throats, some coral ranunculus, whisper pink roses, and lush green hydrangeas.  I kept the cake design very clean and minimal, by using lace stencils, outlined with royal icing and added some sugar pearls on them.   
I thoroghly enjoyed making this cake despite some breakages of my hydrangeas, they all went to the "graveyard of broken sugar flowers," I had to dust some more at 1 am in the morning because I had the need to move some of them after I review some of the shots.  *SIGH*  BUT, it's all good, and I was very happy at the end. 
And the "icing on the cake" of these whole experience was that my little rascal was at his very best in being the ringbearer on the wedding!  He looked very dapper in his tux.  I am a proud mama!
