|So we swapped some ideas. She liked the vintage romantic and soft pastel colors. So we found pictures like this one for inspiration.|
|She knew she did NOT want any fondant so we focused on buttercream textures. I watched some you tube video tutorials to learn some techniques. I posted the videos on pinterest!|
|I sketched a few pictures and we decided on an ivory/off-white and pastel pink color palette.|
|I found the perfect brooch!! Actually I found two, but this one was perfect! Since it was a piece of jewelry I wrapped the pieces that would be inserted in the cake with Glad cling wrap.|
|These were the three tests I did to make my white buttercream vintage white! Bottom one was an ivory paste, middle was brown extract, and the top was the almond extract non-clear that worked like a charm!|
|Just a quick close up of the cake without the ribbon and brooch.|
|The fabulous brooch!|
Definitely one of my favorite cakes! I had so much fun learning how to do the different techniques and am excited about doing more with textured buttercream!!!
