Styled shoot: Tropical Peonies
Several years ago, I met the incredible Charlotte from Charlotte Jade. I sat with her portfolio, leafing through design after design that I just adored. I was blown away and I knew I had to design some cakes using her incredible prints.
Their work is incredible, and all designs start from incredibly detailed and intricate hand drawings produced by Charlotte. Their designs are usually available as wallpaper, textiles, upholstery fabrics, ceramic tiles and flooring, but they also work brilliantly on a cake!
Charlotte was kind enough to share some of her prints with me.
This cake is a two tier cake with the print playing a starring role on the double height bottom tier, and then replicated in the statement sugar peony on the top tier. The top tier was finished with gold metallic paint to really make it shine.
I love working with these prints because you get so much impact and it takes just a few moments to put this on a cake. If I were hand painting this it would take hours and hours, and it would look nowhere near as good because Charlotte is an absolute artist!
This cake forms a set of 5 and you can see the others over the next few weeks.
You can see more of the Charlotte Jade prints on their website.
Many thanks to Claire of Red Poppy Photography.
