A Rosy Combination
Nikki LeFort of Nikki’s Frosted Fantasies was visiting the Nola B. studio a couple of weeks ago when she spotted my cake stand, Rosie Marie. Inspired by the colors and the roses, she asked to take it with her. Always jumping at the chance to have a beautiful cake created specifically for one of my cake stands, I agreed. When Nikki called a few days later telling me that she had created the perfect cake for Rosie, I couldn’t wait to see what she came up with.
To my delight, Nikki created a three-layer cake with ‘petals’ in shades of raspberry. The slightly ombre effect was a nice way to add softness and draw the eye from the base to the top of the cake. To add a little elegance, Nikki hand-painted the petal’s edges with a beautiful gold. The finished product was the perfect marriage of a cake and a stand. I couldn’t have been more pleased.
I’m so happy to finally have a cake fitting for my Rosie. She’s been resting on a shelf without a cake of her own for three years now! In addition to weddings, this combination of cake and stand would be ideal for Sweet 16, Quinceanera or a fancy garden party. I can envision it with flavors of chocolate and raspberries or maybe even a red-velvet cake with an exotic filling.
Rosie is also offered in a Vintage Ivory finish. Both Rosie Marie cake stands are 13″ in diameter at the top which is perfect for cakes 10″-12″. Rosie adds a full 9′ in height and helps to make a smaller cake look quite grand. Stands are available for rental and can be shipped nationwide. www.nolabstyle.com.
