Wedding is the most exciting, beautiful and romantic event. It is all about love and beauty. A wedding cake becomes a substantial part of any wedding reception. That is why people go from very classic to absolutely crazy designs and ideas about a cake to add more fondant rosespersonality into their wedding.

I always wanted to make a wedding cake. It was always in my head and I had so many ideas and thoughts about the way it would look the best. Finally, I came to a very classing but so pretty look. Having a time limit of just a few days this was the best I could make at the moment.

It was a three tier cake with pink fondant roses and white sugar butterflies. I thought these would be the best colours for a wedding cake. The colours of the fondant roses were pink from bright to pale. I thought that this range of colours in one flower would make it more interesting and playful.

The colour of the cake was white. It is a very clean and beautiful colour, it made pink fondant roses even brighter and the whole look so fresh and light. I also made some swirls on the sides of the cake with royal icing. I’ve seen many wedding cake pictures and realised that white patterns look amazing on white fondant. I thought that with just plain white fondant cover the cake would look too quiet and boring.

Inside it was a butter cake with caramel and cream – one of my favourite fillings. I think very often a wedding cake happens to be more about look rather than taste. I really tried to be good in both. Hopefully I got it right. And I think this could also be a beautiful birthday cake for a very special big birthday party. Why wouldn't it.

Darling, you made our wedding day being extra special. In fact, we would have done the wedding in more private way. But with such a first class or five star cake we needed much bigger wedding. Thank you again for being part of our life and for making it more fun.

Hi Marina, I love your site and have used it as a reference many times! Thank you! I have a question about this one, how did you put the Roses and ribbons together for the top of this cake? I can't seem to get my posies to hold their height and shape the same way! Thanks again!

Hi, Lenore. Thank you for your kind words :) The roses were on thin sticks and I just sticked them into the top of my cake on different heights to form a rounded shape.
