I was thrilled to have been approached by Lovebird Designs to design a cake for a styled shoot at the beautiful Kilshane House in Tipperary. Kirsten, the Creative Director of Lovebird Designs, has a passion and talent for relaxed and elegant floral styling so I was unsurprised by her fabulous choice of ‘Botanical Glamour’ for the theme of the shoot. Her moodboard was one of romantically trailing foliage, ruby pinks and of course a touch of gold.
I always want to push my boundaries a little when designing cakes and having up until this point largely used single statement flowers in my designs, I decided to fully embrace the floral theme of this shoot. My design featured a base tier of edible gold leaf topped by two tall and elegant white tiers which were a perfect canvas for sugar florals. A ruby red sugar peony, pink sugar roses and various leaves and foliage were wired into a circular wreath which reflected the trailing foliage and florals of the moodboard.
Styled by Kristine the shoot was captured by Christina Brosnan of Brosnan Photographic and the results were breathtaking.
And what a setting in the orangery of Kilshane House!
