Laduree inspired wedding cake on Martha Stewart

I came across a beautiful statement wedding cake featured on Martha Stewart Weddings that so reminded me of a past trip to The Designer Wedding Show where I met the amazingly talented Javier and Tony from By Appointment Only Design.  As you would expect their stand was stunningly styled and they featured the iconic, adorably stacked packages of scrumptiousness that is Laduree macaroons.  A fortuitous meeting for me as Virginie from Laduree invited me to tea with her at Laduree, Harrods in London.  Heavenly macaroons of Rose and Pistachio, the taste of summer itself!

The fondant-covered box "lids" are the actual cake here, and the bottoms, also wrapped in fondant, are cake risers. The whole package is tied together with a taffeta ribbon, while each tier is edged with gold luster dust and matching royal-icing dots. The surrounding gumdrops, mint "lentils," sugar wafers, dragees, and pillow mints are treats you might find inside these packages, were they not made of cake.

The full feature can be found on the Martha Stewart Wedding's website.

    The colours and styling are breathtaking. Love the idea of the cake risers actually being the fondant wrapped bases to the cakes. Thanks for sharing this with us.
