Later this week I'll pull together a how-to make the bows, how to attach the ribbons and where to get the supplies, but for now I wanted to share the looks.
What's astonishing to me is how different they all feel!
Here is where we started. Pretty as it is in it's own austere way....
For this one, again, the basic Satin Ribbon cake as it comes but in addition I created a ribbon bouquet using several colors of white and then accented with creamy ivory paper hydrangeas. Letting the tails hand down gives some soft movement and grace.
Originally this cake was created for New York Weddings- but after submitting several designs this one didn't make the issue but instead made the cutting room floor (many bakers had the same experience, *sigh* oh well!). This design was Lauren's inspiration off of a "crumb catcher" neckline on a wedding dress.
Lastly, we used different tones, widths and types of ribbons to create this design. Grosgrain, satin and paper ribbon were used. Nestled on the top is that pretty group of paper hydrangeas.
