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.
