A Wedding Tea Party

This shabby chic wedding tea party was my first ever cake photoshoot. The wonderfully talented Lora, from Lora Grady Photography, asked me if I would make a cake for her wedding tea party-inspired photoshoot, and of course I said yes! After discovering that the colors were pink and yellow, I went to work. I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

We needed some sort of pastry at the tea party (because what is a tea party without sweets?!), so I decided to make little delicate cupcakes. Simple yet beautiful.
This cupcake was my favorite. 

And we can't forget about the star of the show...the cake!
I went with an ivory buttercream, the bottom layer being swirls, the next layer waves, and the top two layers as petals; all surrounding an almond cake with raspberry cream filling.

I love shrub roses, don't you? They're timeless.
I supplied my own flowers for my desserts, but the remaining gorgeous floral work was done by Lauren at Lauren Hickman Design.

The beautiful bride and groom...
