In the Details: Painted Cakes

>> Monday, February 28, 2011

Happy Monday everyone.  I know my post is a little late today so we'll get right to it.  I saw this cake by My Sweet and Saucy a couple weeks ago and could not get it out of my mind.  It is truly divine.

I fell in love with the hand painted detail on this cake and was immediately inspired to search for more hand-painted wedding cakes. While the design can  range from the simple

to intricate like this design below modeled after a piece of china., there is no limit to the design. You could even mix a hand painted detail with sugar flowers or other design elements.

What I love about the hand painted cake is it's unexpected. The designs are fresh and creative and it allows you to design a cake suited to your theme, a heirloom or like the cake from My Sweet and Saucy that captures the couples relationship.

If your heart is set on beautiful tiers of sugar flowers that's great and it will be lovely.  But if you may want something different think about a beautifully hand-painted cake.  I hope this little bit of inspiration will help.
