Wedding Cakes with Mint & Grey Foliage

pink peonies and roses with dusty miller wedding cake by Leslea Matsis

With mint and grey two top wedding colours amongst brides this summer, we’re highlighting mint and grey foliage this week as the perfect accent to pastel sugar flowers for a soft, floral garden style wedding cake design.

Our feature cake above is by Leslea Matsis – a textured buttercreamed creation crowned with her signature impeccable roses and powder pink peonies, with little sprays of dusty miller peeping through for pretty silver/grey colour contrast.

A beautiful composition of soft pink roses, buds, blossoms and sweet peas is given a rustic finish with sprigs of dusty miller creating a chic colour palette in this multi-textured wedding cake design by Nine Cakes (Philip Ficks Photography via The Knot).
