Monday Funday: Under the sea!

Happy Monday! We hope that you all had a great weekend and are back in action for a productive week! The patchettes are suckers for a theme wedding, this one in particular is very unique. It takes a special couple to pull off the mermaid theme, but is it definitely a show stopper.

Trend Alert: One-Tiered Wonders

We’re used to seeing wedding cakes in size “Tall”, in all their three- or four-tier glory. Here, we’ve compiled a series of single-tiered cakes, decorated just as exquisitely – only more petite, and more approachable! Although larger cakes gather attention right away, their smaller alternatives are also extremely impressive, as all of the raw talent of these artists are essentially condensed into one little tier. You’ll be shocked to see just how mind-blowingly ornate and well-crafted these delectable creations can be!

Don’t be fooled by these rosy buttercream prints! Unlike the previous piece, the marks on this “LOVE”-ly cake are created from finger-painting.

This absolutely irresistable features six layers of chocolate filled with equally chocolatey ganache! Warning: frequent use of “chocolate” as adjective to describe said cake quick to follow.

Golden drips make for a golden wedding, yes?

According to the creator’s description, this cake features purple buttercream paired with turquoise isomalt. Oh, and did we mention it had upside-down drips?

This cake would probably look just as enticing even with just the painterly florals.

Soft sprinklings of sugar bring about mysterious chalky effect, but that’s the very quality that draws people in.
