Woodland Inspiration Shoot

I have yet another fantastic photo shoot to share with you all!  I've participated in several photo shoots the last couple months, so I'm excited to share those with you as I get the photos back in.  This shoot was created and coordinated by a couple of truly talented ladies, Amanda with Branches Floral and Mollie with Polka Dots and Daisies.  They did such a fabulous job with the concept and I was truly stunned at the beauty of it all.  The theme was a woodland fall wedding.  I myself love rustic and natural elements, so this shoot was so "my cup of tea."  The colors were rich cranberry reds, moss greens, and touches of metallics like copper. 
For the cake, I wanted to do something really bold and different and not be afraid to show how a very deep colored cake can be seriously beautiful.  Amanda and Mollie still wanted to make sure we had a touch of whimsy in the shoot, so the colorful fantasy mushrooms were a fun addition to the cake.  The cake was done in fondant in a deep cranberry color with fondant "moss" to give it a really organic feel.  The mushrooms and birch wood borders were done in fondant.  Copper floral wire was twisted to give some metallic accents to it.  The cake is very tall and narrow, which is one of my favorite shapes right now. 
This was such a fun cake to work on and a beyond fabulous project to be part of.  There were some absolutely amazing vendors that participated in this shoot.  You can see even more stunning images of it at Azure B's blogspot or Camilla Binks.
