Ombre Wedding Cakes
I learned this really interesting and fabulous technique from cake maker extraordinaire Juliet Sear who works with really famous people, including the royals (as you do.)
The word 'ombre' is literally french for 'colour that is shaded or graduated in tone' (me trying to sound intelligent). An ombre wedding cake is decorated in bands of different coloured buttercream. Smooth finish or petal effect, the colours are graduated in tone.
Its all about the colour palette with ombre wedding cakes. They can be fun, romantic or dramatic. Depending on the vibe you want your wedding beauty to evoke.
Ombre cakes can be decorated with a whole host of beautiful and delicious delights. I have found that less is more and to let the ombre do the talking/ make the statment.
In the next few weeks I will be creating a two tier green to white ombre beauty. Base tier taller then the top tier. Dressed with foliage and some small elegant blooms in shades of pale pink. Excited!
