Pastel Colored Love

One of my former primary school-mate, Atylia contacted me and asked if I can make her a cake for "Hantaran" on her Engagement Ceremony. We haven't talked as much in school actually, but I guess it's good to know that we always there when in need. She asked for the same design as the Red and White Wedding Cake but with no tiers at all. A little twist made when she opt for Chocolate Cake frosted with Vanilla Buttercream and Iced with Fondant.

Her cake was designed accordingly to her request. However, a slight alteration to the Bouquet Topper had gave the cake it's own personality. Instead of gathering just Roses in different colors, I introduced another complementary flower - The Baby's Breath. Also, some Green color of Leaves tied up all the Bouquet nicely. Another distinct feature in difference to the reference design, the Roses here are made in 3 different shades of the same color. The color pallet proposed was in Pastel Themed - Purple and Pink. I incorporated the colors mainly in the Bouquet Topper with additional flowers of Baby's Breath in Pastel Yellow and Some leaves for the Green. The rest of the design is quite similar to the reference design which is Quilted Effects and Hearts Studded.
