Purple Ombre and Orchids

Purple ombre and orchids…..with a hint of gold.  Yep, that’s all we were told to incorporate in this birthday cake design for one of our favorite repeat clients.  She is a true spit fire; so full of energy and life.  So, it was no surprise to us that she was going to be “turn’t up” as she celebrated her birthday in style at Ozios, located in Washington, DC.

We covered the cake with Massa fondant and used Americolor Regal Purple airbrush colors for the ombre affect.  To incorporate a “regal” feel, we added gumpaste “crowns” at the base of each tier.

We used our favorite Nicholas Lodge gumpaste recipe to create the sugar roses and orchids.  The flowers were then dusted with our favorite colors from The Sugar Art.
