Cherry blossom cakes are elegant, springtime favorites that typically display sprays of gum paste cherry blossoms. It's a popular choice for wedding and ladies birthday cakes.

Cherry Blossom Wedding Cakes

cherry blossom cakeThis was my first paid wedding cake order. It's a three tier, fondant covered wedding cake. The top tier is marble cake, the second tier is triple chocolate cake, and the bottom tier is vanilla cake. All three tiers were filled with raspberry buttercream and frosted with vanilla buttercream.

I hand made the cherry blossoms with gum paste and used petal dusts to give them color. The buds I made using tinted gum paste, then I dusted those as well for a more dimensional look. The border was made using tinted fondant.

To attach the flowers, I first grouped them in sprays, then used Wilton's flower spikes to position them on the cake layers and covered any areas with loose flowers I had made.

I loved the way this cake turned out and the bride did too! =)
