A Four-Tier Purple Peony Wedding Cake

Everyone loves a good purple palette for weddings! To help all of you purple-loving brides out there, I found this gorgeous peony-embellished wedding cake by Three Little Blackbirds bakery in Colorado. First, pastry chef Erin Schaefgen covered the four cake tiers with Swiss meringue buttercream. Next, she created intricate purple peonies from fondant (each petal was handpainted a different shade of purple) along with additional fondant petals and accents, all designed to match the couple's wedding invitation.
