Buttercream Rosette Wedding Cake

Love is in the air this week, as Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us.  That air may be a bit chilly at the moment, but the love I’m currently thinking of reminds me of warmer days of summer.  Specifically, I’m thinking back to this cake I made for a sweet couple who got married on a lovely, warm day back in August.  (I’m a little late in sharing it with you, but why not spread the love – and the summer memories – a little further?)

It was sweet and simple – a two-tier version of my classic buttercream rosette cake, topped with a vintage-inspired, gold-dusted gumpaste rose.  A collection of matching full-size and mini rosette cupcakes with gold dragees finished the display.

Here’s a better view of the gumpaste rose – the edges are finished in edible gold paint, and dusted all over with gold lustre dust to give it that antique-y vibe.

Hopefully this love will warm you inside and out, as we wait for summer days to come again.  Congratulations again to the beautiful couple.  It was a gorgeous day, and I wish you the happiest of lives together!!
