We were delighted to get the chance to help at another styled-photo shoot put on by the fabulous ladies of A Charming Fete this past September. We received their "mood board" for the shoot's inspiration, and we had a major swoon moment. The mauves, the leaves, the texturs! So Fall, so moody, so glam.

We knew this cake needed texture. We hand-made soft waves in the ivory buttercream frosting and followed it up with a shimmery sheen dusting. A lace applique detail was added to the edges of the two-tiered cake to take it to the next level. Next up, hand-made fondant foliage: THIS was going take some time. But boy was it worth it. The photographs from this shoot made our jaws drop and our cake definitely had it's moment.
