One of my co-workers asked me to bake her wedding cake and wanted the design to be restrained and low key. She had seen a cake I made in the past with dots on it and felt that would be ideal for her theme.
It’s easy to obsess over a simple design like this. The dots need to be lined up and the buttercream needs to look smooth or it will loose its elegance. When I piped the dots most of them formed peeks and it bothered me that they were not perfectly round so I went back with a damp brush and smoothed out each of the dots.
I made the fantasy flowers out of sugar paste and colored them with metallic purple and some silver food coloring.
It was a white cake with raspberry filling and Italian Meringue Buttercream.
