Macramè-Inspired Bohemian Wedding Cake
Weaving Love’s Magic: Crafting a Macramè Wedding Cake
During my Florence apartment renovation, my obsession with plant installations led me to the captivating world of macramè art. Previously, I’d braided fondant to mimic Florentine leatherwork, sparking the idea – could I use the same technique for macramè? Playing with fondant, I twisted, tangled, and braided, letting my thoughts wander on love’s twists and turns. This journey inspired a tiered cake that mirrors the intricate beauty of macramè, capturing the essence of love’s delightful tangles.
A Bohemian Wedding in Italy
Picture this – a Northern Italian airstream adorned with Persian rugs, pampas grass, and wicker details. The couple, embracing simplicity, opted for an intimate escape in the airstream. The wedding planner’s camping vision perfectly aligned with their desire for a distraction-free experience, setting the stage for a magical celebration.
Macramè-Inspired Cake Crafting
Taking cues from the macramè art, I embarked on crafting a cake that echoed the intricacies of a macramè wall piece. Drawing inspiration from my own home’s plant holders, I aimed for a loose bohemian feel. Known for my sugar flowers, this time, I skipped foliage, allowing the gorgeous string work to shine. The all-white fondant and sugar gum paste covered cake resonated with the organic and earthy theme, a reflection of the couple’s unique personality.
Flavors Crafted for Individuality
For the couple’s eclectic spirit, I curated a unique flavor profile for each of the three tiers. Enter the “Millionaire” cake – a moist white sponge enveloped in salted caramel, filled with luscious chocolate mousse. A rich and unexpected choice, balancing sweet sponge, salty caramel, and bitter chocolate. The visual surprise of dark chocolate beneath an all-white cake adds an extra layer of delight.
Three Words: Simple, Gorgeous, Elevated
Summing up this bohemian wedding, the cake, and the couple in three words: simple, gorgeous, and elevated. The simplicity of the elopement, the intricate cake details, and the elevated experience all contribute to a love story told with artistry and natural beauty.
