Nikki + Ryan

Photo by Tyler Branch

Last August I had the privilege of creating a wedding cake for my friend Ryan and his bride Nikki. All they requested was a “naked” style cake with their colors being ivory and sage. They also mentioned their venue The Lombardi House as inspiration for the look. Their main concern was to have the cake “look good for the photos” since they wanted to have their special day featured in a wedding blog. No pressure.

I instantly knew I wanted to add some wafer paper flowers. They are definitely on trend with the latest cake decorating techniques and add a nice modern touch to any design. They are also lightweight which I felt was important to balance a naked style cake.

They chose carrot cake with cream cheese frosting as their flavors.

Nikki and Ryan’s wedding was featured in Green Wedding Shoes. You can read about their special day and view their beautiful photos under Modern Boho Wedding at Lombardi House: Nikki + Ryan.

A goal of mine was to have one of my creations featured in a popular wedding or food blog. A big THANKS to the Carandangs for allowing that to happen. Hopefully it won’t be my last.
