Florentine Ivy and Picasso Lilies

Julie and Nick's wedding reception in a Botanical Center begged for a floral/ivy/botanically-inspired wedding cake!

Frosted in our vanilla buttercream, this couple opted for Dessert Works' "Florentine Ivy" design in a soft sage green.  Though ivy-inspired, this design also incorporates flourishes like a waving scroll, and dots that create even further embellishment.

On the middle tier, Dessert Works applied the same design, only much more conservatively.  The stretches of smooth buttercream and open space on this tier created a nice contrast to the top and bottom tiers.

The cake was further decorated with fresh flowers in deep fuchsias and plums -- Picasso Lilies and orchids.  Beautiful!  The floating candles provide an air of romance, delicately accenting the cake.
