People that say “I eat to live, I don’t live to eat” are absolutely bananas. Most of my time is spent thinking about food, preparing food, and/or consuming food. Some of my best inspiration comes from this love because some of the best colour palettes can be found in what we eat... especially desserts which tend to be made to look pretty. A good cake contains elements of balance and cohesion throughout, both of which are also the ingredients to the perfect event decor scheme.
Check out the cakes below below and see how I use them as jumping off points to influence an event concept’s colours, textures, patterns, and structure.
1. Shades of pink, smooth white, sage and a hint of sparkle
Soft, curvy and girly florals meets the perfectly imperfect fondant that almost looks like gold-flecked pink concrete, making this feel like a cake of contrasts. Translating this into your event means fun and flirty decor on an industrial backdrop -- the perfect juxtaposition.
2. Copper, white, marble & minimal
Industrial yet smooth with a geometric flair, this cake begs for a decor scheme containing natural elements and powerful clean lines.
3. Abstract Citrus
This one is just plain fun. Use it to inspire your jewel-toned soiree and go bold with colours and accessories.
4. Natural and Organic - Nude, Greenery, and Gold
For that natural, effortlessly whimsical event.
5. Vintage Eclectic
This cake reminds me of a knit pattern on a cozy vintage sweater, which inspired the retro mood board you'll see below.
6. Clementine Cream
Besides the fact that this pavlova looks TO DIE FOR, it's also such an incredible colour scheme. Orange can go so wrong SO quickly, but the clementine hue is the perfect statement colour to make natural elements pop.
