Pomegranates in Bloom
A naked chocolate cake with cream-cheese icing from Dolce Bakery gets a dose of color with fresh pomegranates, pepper berries and pink garden roses. A blossoming bouquet of pink garden roses, peonies, hanging amaranthus, pepper berries and wax flowers from Blue Bouquet coordinates perfectly. Pewter cake stand from Pryde's Kitchen & Necessities.
Limes and oranges accent a cascading bouquet of succulents, coral peonies, sherbet carnations, blue thistle, leucadendron and couture areca palms from Bobby Kyser Events. Cream hypericum berries sit atop a four-tier round cake with buttercream icing from Sugar & Spice Catering. Silver cake stand from Halls Kansas City.
Through the Grapevine
Grapes give a garden-fresh update to this bouquet of red roses, pink astilbe, seeded eucalyptus, sorbonne lilies and leucadendron from Floral Accents. A three-tier round cake with ruffled buttercream frosting from Baked Expressions is a classic choice. Plates and forks from Halls Kansas City, cake stand from Pryde's Kitchen & Necessities.
Naked tiers of vanilla cake by It's a Sweet Treat Day Bakery are sandwiched between layers of buttercream icing and dotted with fresh raspberries and blackberries. A bouquet of red roses, ranunculus, kumquats and proteas from Good Earth Floral Design Studio is tied with cream and pink ribbon. Cake stand and forks from Pryde's Kitchen & Necessities.
