Custom made icing silhouettes for special cakes

Posted by Michelle Bailey on

On trend and very stylish for engagement and wedding cakes are icing silhouettes. We have had the pleasure of creating a custom made icing silhouette for a talented cake decorator recently and we would like to share it with you...

Icing Silhouettes

Please take a few seconds to watch our little video. We hope it gives you some ideas for your next special occasion cake:



From what cakes we have seen, icing silhouettes really come into the spotlight when used on a tiered cake.  Any number of tiers, 2 or more. 
Icing silhouettes can even be designed and made to have the silhouette over more than 1 tier of the cake to achieve the full height of the cake. 
Such a stunning effect. 

Endless possibilities...is your mind ticking away with ideas? 
 
Black is the most common colour for icing silhouettes for cakes, however, any colour can be used and with great effect.  Depending on the theme and design of the cake match colours and be creative.  For example light blue, aqua and white would make perfect silhouettes for a winter or icy theme cake.  
 
We have an ever growing Pinterest board, full of beautiful cakes adorned with icing silhouettes.  Check it out and if you would like to give your next cake a stylish and easy decoration that won't break the budget, contact us. We would love to help bring your cake design to life.   
 
We fell in love with the simply stunning effect that was created with a custom made icing silhouette on this 2 tier engagement cake.  The talent behind the cake in our video is Kerry Neve from SugarLily Cakes and Confectionery, Elanora on the Gold Coast, QLD. 
Here is a photo of Kerry's beautiful cake with the icing silhouette:

We have a few words from Kerry on her experience with the custom made icing silhouette we made for her: 
 

"...send you a photo of the cake using your fabulous laser cut image. The image was absolutely brilliant, I couldn’t have asked for anything better and it was perfect for the cake giving it a really professional finish.  I must say that Michelle’s advice and lovely, friendly help made the whole process a real pleasure and even though I had originally made an error with my order, I’m actually quite glad I did as Michelle’s suggestions and guidance lead me to a far better result!
......
Anyway, suffice to say I’m very happy and the couple I made the cake for absolutely loved it so smiles all around, I shall definitely return!!
Many thanks to Michelle and the team there!
Take care
Kerry

"I can imagine it would be nice to see your products on the actual cakes, that’s when they really come to life and I was so pleased with how well the laser cut silhouette worked on this cake, it was perfect for it!"
......I will certainly be back in touch as and when the need arises, I wouldn’t dream of going to anyone else now!!
Thanks again,
Kerry
