Paper Flowers for the Wedding Cake

Posted on Mar 10, 2011

My cousin and I had originally talked about having paper flowers on the wedding cake.  We had talked about the cake looking something like this one and using paper flowers would be an inexpensive way to spruce up a plain cake.

Their wedding cakes ended up looking like their wedding invitation and weren't plain at all! There was really no way for the wedding cake guru to fit my paper flowers on these extraordinary cakes.

I also must say that I was extremely nervous about making flowers for the cake, especially after I had mailed 25 flowers to my cousin and the all ended up looking like this.  I just didn't want their cake to look bad because of my sad, sad flowers.

I firmly believe that things happen for a reason.  The cake was gorgeous by itself with no help from me and my flowers were fluffed up and put in a vase that sat on the head table. They looked great and helped make the head table – with a few additional pom-pom flowers attached to the couples wine glasses – more festive.

At the end of the night, this bouquet was tossed into the group of single folks to see who would be married next.  This is another case of how my flowers started off not being used for the purpose they were created, but ended up having a much more powerful impact than I could have imagined.
