Fuchsia & Navy

These were the shower colors for the cake I did on Sunday. Love!

The blushing bride is a friend of my friend Jess, so it really was a special pleasure to do this cake.

The cake itself was white, filled and crumbcoated with vanilla buttercream, then covered in white fondant.

Jess and I worked together closely on the details, and she even made ALL the accompanying cupcakes! We agreed on an alternating color scheme - navy ribbon and fuchsia flowers for the cake and fuchsia liners with navy monogram accents for the cupcakes!

The flower topper was dark pink peonies, white and light pink campanula and dark pink waxflower. It was so dreamy and romantic, and perfectly paired with the more straightlaced navy. The navy monogram accents were made from stamped fondant and hand cut - quite a process but I was very pleased with the results.

The shower was held in the beautiful home of a family friend, and I'm told a wonderful time was had by all.

Here's the bride, enjoying one of Jess's cupcakes!
