Today I want to share a Wisteria Wedding cake with purple ribbon and black scrolling.  It’s been a while since I shared a wedding cake and well…. after getting two calls about wedding cakes today, I just got “in the mood.”

I’m gonna get brutally honest here and say I wasn’t quite sure how this cake was gonna look when I just had a description and mental image.   I was out-right worried that the hexagon shapes and purple and black and silk wisteria was just not gonna work together.

Add to it that the groom’s cake was this oh-so-appealing Catfish cake (tutorial for the Catfish cake here) and I was truly wondering if I’d have my first wedding flub!

But after it was all said and done… I absolutely loved the cake!

The 3 tiers were baked in 6″, 9″ and 12″ hexagon pans and the flavor was strawberry cake.   It was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant (MMF)  and the scrolling was royal icing.   The purple ribbons were also MMF and I used my How to Add Ribbons to Cakes for Borders method to do those (with my favorite FMM ribbon cutter).

The bride supplied the cake topper and the silk wisteria, so I’m not sure where they were purchased but there are tons of online stores that sell things like that and I’m sure you could also check your local hobby stores or Walmart!    If all else fails, there’s always Amazon:  Initial Cake Toppers and Silk Wisteria!

And that’s it!!

Do you have any questions about this cake?   Please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll help if I can!

    I really like the way this cake turned out! One question – do you do your ribbon borders around the tiers before, or after, stacking your cakes? I’d be afraid if I did it beforehand that I’d mess one up in the move.

      Thanks Megan!! I always do my ribbons after stacking the tiers. I used them to cover any gaps or spaces between tiers and I couldn’t do that if they were put on before stacking!
