This 5 tier wedding cake travelled down to The Rancho Golf Club in San Jose for an elegant wedding coordinated by the wonderful Jimmy Vo of JVoWeddings.com. Adorned with gold filigrees, sugar roses, lace and strung pearls this cake was covered in pale pink fondant and had a little lift filled with ruffled sugar to look like fabric.
This wedding cake design was inspired from Tinga Tinga art. The birds were seen on the couple's place cards and invitations and the design was also inspired from textiles that the bride had collected in her travels abroad in Africa. I am always honored when my cakes are viewed at the De Young museum.
