Sugar & Frosting with The Elegant Petal

At Sugar & Frosting Wedding Cake Studio in Fort Worth we have the privilege of working with some amazing wedding vendors.  We have taken this opportunity to interview some of our favorite vendors and will be offering some of their wisdom and expertise over the next few months on various topics relating to their businesses.  

This week we interviewed Allison Welch of The Elegant Petal area Fort Worth Florist.  

S&F: Can you tell me a little bit about the types of flowers you like to use on wedding cakes?

The Elegant Petal's Allison: For a 3 dimensional look on wedding cake flowers we like to use an interesting greenery or flower buds. Tree fern greenery is feather-like and the Freesia flower has blooms and tiny green buds that look fantastic trailing over the edge of cake layers. 

S&F: What do you suggest for ruffle loving brides: A cluster of gladiolus blooms creates a ruffled effect and, since the blossoms are separate from the stem, most people are in awe as to what type of exotic flower it is. 

The Elegant Petal's Allison:  What's your favorite simple and easy look? A
favorite look to customize cake decor is to use striped or other themed ribbon with a large bloom as an accent.

Textured Cake Trio by Sugar and Frosting, Keller TX Bakery

At S & F Weddings, Fort Worth wedding cake bakery we are seeing a definite increase in brides opting to do a grouping of cakes on the dessert table.  This option allows for multiple flavors, multiple wedding cake designs and more servings with a vintage feel and is certainly easier to serve!

Dallas Cowboy's Wedding by Sugar and Frosting

When S and F Weddings by Sugar and Frosting in Fort Worth Texas was approached by this June bride and groom to create a silver and navy wedding cake and grooms cake we were super excited! What could be more exciting for a dfw wedding cake bakery than to create the iconic Dallas Cowboys helmet and a brides cake to match!
