Art Deco Cake

Black and white and gold…so pretty! We absolutely loved creating this cake for a New Year’s Eve Wedding at The Mayo Hotel in Tulsa, OK. This cake was a three-tier to serve 62 people and had a different flavor and filling in each of the tiers. The top and bottom tiers were iced smooth with white buttercream. And for the middle tier, the bride stepped outside the box with a smooth, black buttercream tier. The contract of the buttercream colors coupled with the pop of metallic gold accents was stunning and The Mayo Hotel was the perfect venue for this cake!

Each tier of this cake had a fondant band at the base and the top and bottom tiers had hand cut and painted art deco fans and accents. These were created by cutting out fondant, adding texture and then painting the metallic gold accents. The middle tier was a bit different as we cut tiny lines and strips of fondant and added it directly to the cake piece by piece to form the art deco design.

The lines on this design were straightened with a razor blade for crisp perfection. Once the design was in place, with a very steady hand, we painted each piece gold with a mixture of edible gold and vodka. Art Deco perfection!!
