Wedding Cake, Florence, Italy – Painted Cameo

Wedding Cake, Florence, Italy – Painted Cameo

Wedding Cake in Florence, Italy by Tuscan Cake Designer L’Arte Della Torta di Melanie Secciani. Every cake has it’s own inspiration, and my favorite cakes are the ones that use really unique details.

On the top and second to bottom tier, I recreated a piece of lace that the bride had given me in royal icing on the cake. I love doing that because it’s really amazing when people start looking at the details on the cake and the theres this WOW moment when they realize that it’s the same lace pattern as the bride is wearing. To economize the cake, for the second lace pattern I used a sugar lace pattern and just pulled out some of the details to give it some highlights. The whole cake was then set off by a gorgeous...
