Monday Sugar High: Maisie Fantaisie's Floral Cakes
Today is one of those tired Monday mornings and I needed a lift, so I went straight to Maisie Fantaisie and found some new wedding cake styles in florals that are so gorgeous it's impossible to be crabby after seeing them.Their styling is always exquisite and the photos are just a dream.
Let's indulge beyond the visuals and look at what's beneath that squeal-inducing exterior:
'Anemone' wedding cake (top left) : Meyer lemon cake, vanilla bean buttercream, Fortnum's rose petal jelly, polka dot ribbon and pale pink sugar anemones.'Hydrangea Cascade and Roses' wedding cake : Madagascan vanilla bean cake, Amedei Chuao chocolate buttercream, satab ribbon (Satab is a French ribbon company) , sugar hydrangea flowers and sugar roses.
'Hibiscus Flowers and Pearls' wedding cake: Meyer lemon cake, 'Duchy Originals' lemon curd, vanilla bean buttercream, satab ribbon, sugar pearls and sugar hibiscus flowers.
'Sugar Swag and Buttons' wedding cake: Orange zest cake, Amedei Chuao chocolate buttercream, caramel, satab ribbon, sugar swags, pale pink and lilac sugar hydrangea flowers and sugar buttons.
I like playing this game where I pick my favourite design, and then which one I would most want to eat. I have a thing for textures and lots and lots of small flowers, so I think my favourite is the Hydrangea Cascade cake (top right). And if I had a cake lifter put up to my throat demanding I destroy one of these beauties by cutting into it, I'd go with the Sugar Swag and Buttons cake because I have a weakness for chocolate and orange together, and this would surely be as good as it gets.
Could you choose?
