Eastern Styled Wedding Cake

Modern meets Traditional Eastern Wedding Cake

Modern meets Traditional

We first met this bride at a wedding expo in Gainesville, Florida. She initially told us she wasn’t going to have a wedding cake! (Insert gasps from Yeni here). With her wedding reception menu being heavily influenced by different Eastern cultures, she felt that no wedding cake could “fit” her reception.

We love a challenge.

We worked with our bride’s menu and came up with several ideas; went back to the lab/kitchen, and started formulating some recipes. The amazing couple met us in the bakery, and selected a wonderful Vanilla Spice / Chai cake with Chai Buttercream.

Of course, the design of this cake was tremendously fun to create. Our couple wanted modern design meets traditional Eastern influences. =) =)
