I like to call my small wedding cakes a 'cakelette' because they are special little works of art.

I am making a cakelette for a couple who are getting married this weekend, and it is simple yet bright.

Their palette is purples and pinks, so for the cake I thought a white cake with colorful flowers would reflect on the table settings but not compete

Something about this vintage print inspired the colors as well;

Especially since the centers will have antique gold, similar to the frame.

And just to make it a little more sweet, I handpainted some detail inside the purple flowers.

Happy Wedding!
