The wedding cake is more than just a traditional wedding dessert. It’s the ultimate centerpiece to the reception’s decor where both sides of the wedding can come together in awe of it’s edible artwork.
For Jasmine and David’s Royal York wedding in downtown Toronto, they wanted the cake to be the first thing you see when you walked into the Imperial Ballroom. Their decor, planned and designed by the talented Cynthia Martyn of Cynthia Martyn Events , made it exciting and easy to find inspiration for the cake design. Jasmine had a good sense for what she wanted. The cake had to be at least 5 tiers tall, vintage inspired, purple and gold, interesting fence like topper, and to accentuate her beautiful wedding decor of roses and orchids. I had so much fun with Jasmine when designing this wedding cake, mainly because we both would get excited and dream up more ways to make her cake luxurious. Over time with our cake plotting and dreaming, it grew, added more flowers and golden lace trim, a grooms cake was added for their brunch, and the cake became more detailed and elegant with 24k gold scrolls to blend with the topper. Her style as a fabulous bride and mine as a cake designer blended in creating this edible masterpiece and the results has made it one of my favorite cakes I’ve designed to date.
Another aspect that excited me for this wedding was who they had chosen for their wedding photographers, Dave and Charlotte Photography. With knowing how glamorous they shoot weddings, I had to use their photos when capturing this large wedding cake. As a cake designer, with it being a busy and extremely labour intensive job,I don’t usually ever get to see the cake cutting or the couple enjoying their cake. So when I saw these gorgeous images, I was so thrilled (almost cried) to see Jasmine and David (one of my favourite couples) cut their dream cake I designed for them. It’s pictures like these that remind me why I work so long and hard on an art form that must be destroyed to be savoured. Thank you again Dave and Char for sharing these!
Congratulations Jasmine and David! It was pleasure designing your dream wedding cake.
This vanilla and raspberry cake was nearly 5 feet tall with 8 tiers (2 double) and a golden edible fencepost topper.
I love how stunning this photo is!
