Neon Wedding Cake in Citrus and Raspberry Colors

Pastry chef Michelle Maric of Sugablossom Cakes in Sydney, Australia, was asked to create a summer-themed wedding cake, so she created this bright and cheery one. "I jumped at the chance to create something bold using summer fruit-inspired colors," she says. To create the zingy design, Michelle covered the cake tiers in chocolate ganache and hand-dyed fondant in varying shades of citrus and raspberry. Next, she cut thin strips of fondant and carefully placed them around the tiers; hand-wired gumpaste flowers were the finishing touch.
