Antonio Gaudi and cherry blossoms
This striking pink, pearl and dark brown sculpted wedding cake was posted to our website late last year and was a result of a collaborative effort between our bride Bella, and Rick. Bella, who works in an architectural firm, desired a cake that would cause jaws to drop, and would draw inspiration from her favorite architect, Antonio Gaudi, a Catalan architect identified with the Modernismo movement of the late Nineteenth Century and the international Art Nouveau style. The result is the cake above. The theme was Japanese and cherry blossoms and the couple wanted to have items like the cake and their Chicago sign, that held significance to them, even if it didn't exactly fall in line with the motif. For the cake, the couple chose our Hawaii Five-0 and Guava Lava flavors. The marriage between the cherry blossoms, pink, pearl and dark brown colors and Antonio Gaudi, was a most unusual match that came together beautifully!
