The delicate look of this cake comes from wafer paper—which was used for the leaves and petals, painted in soft, watercolour-like shades of green, lilac and pink, and accented in gold. More wafer paper was used to cover the cake to create an ombre effect, all to conceal a lemon and raspberry cake layered with buttercream.

Penney Pang demonstrates her prowess at sculpting sugar, beginning with sugar roses and hydrangeas to add some floral flair to the top tier, while sugar paste is used to create bas-relief detailing at the base of the cake. Underneath all this pretty sugar work is a decadent chocolate cake matched with rosewater buttercream.

Buttercream is used to create this Autumn Blossoms pattern, featuring a trail of flowers in pastel shades. It looks too pretty to cut into but once you do, a sumptuous red velvet cake—Vive Cake Boutique’s most popular flavour—awaits.

This cake comes with a poetic name—Ode to Butterflies—and a sentimental backstory, starting from an architectural design covered with vanilla fondant to depict a house, as a symbol of a new stage in the couple’s lives, decorated with butterflies made from wafer paper to hark back to the feelings that the bride and groom had when they knew they had found their soulmate. This attention to detail extends to the cake—a pink velvet concoction layered with strawberry jam and champagne cream.
