So I recently had a very lovely couple visit us here at Sticky Fingers Cake Co for their wedding cake consultation, who were having trouble visualising the design I was trying to describe to them. I’d created my initial drawings, they wanted the design tweaked slightly, but somewhere between us our conversation was getting ‘garbled’……

What to do?!

“If we can’t visualise it in our minds” I thought, “why not make it for real?” So that’s what I did….. I made the design on a small 4” dummy tier (no yummy cake to eat at this point!), and you can see the result in the picture above.

I think it looks fab and although lilac isn’t my colour (I’m definitely more of a pinky girl!) I was really pleased with how it turned out; lilac “3D” sugar butterflies, with pearl lustred butterflies lying flat against the cake as if forming shadows and finished off with a matching satin lilac ribbon trim.

It did the trick and I’m thrilled to report that my happy couple went ahead and booked their cake with us
