Song Bird Wedding Cake


I was asked by a friend to make a cake for her wedding. She is a botanist, and her husband has a degree in forestry, so they agreed that they wanted a “woodsy” theme for their wedding.

This cake fit their description perfectly.

The birds were modeled gumpaste, which I painted with petal dust.

The colors of the song birds were chosen to coordinate with the wedding reception decor.

The cake only had to travel a few miles down the road, but transporting it was easily the most stressful part of the process! An egg crate was used to transport the birds:

Don't count your eggs before they hatch!

Once I was at the reception location, I had to carry everything up a flight of stairs! Five trips, to be exact!

Putting the cake together was the easy (and fun) part.

The camera is crooked...not the cake!

The groom cut the log that serves as the cake plate himself!

    Wow – this is beautiful. You did a great job! I love the little songbirds. I love how you made it look so elegant too. What a memorable gift for the bride and groom. They won’t remember the toasters and the towels they received, but they’ll always remember this cake. Nicely done!

    I really like what you’ve done with the theme but I was asking myself if you are the one that created it or you just bought it and customized it?
