Elegant Wedding Cake Meets Mexican Culture

The latest cake tutorial to be found on The Sugar Geek Show is a lovely Jewel Toned Mexican Inspired Wedding Cake that is insanely unique for several reasons. Combine it with the Fuchsia Flowers, Buds and Berries Tutorial and you have a plethora of brand new techniques you can use on any cake! That’s right, I said plethora. Liz made this cake for a special friend who wanted to represent the coming together of two cultures. Very cool. Let’s take a closer look at the stunning details.

First off we have to swoon over this rose. Just let that set in for a bit. It’s so realistic your guests will be trying to smell it. Now you’re thinking, ” it is gorgeous but it must be super difficult and time consuming”, but guess what? IT’S NOT. Liz said, and I quote, “I think it’s the easiest rose I have ever made”. BONUS!

Fuchsia Sugar Rose

This is the photo Liz took of the real rose that inspired her. It is unlike any other rose I have ever seen, not that I am a rose expert of any kind whatsoever but I can see why she was inspired to creepily take a photo of her neighbor’s rose; this definitely needed to be done in sugar.

Fuchsia Rose

Beautiful gold leaves are a perfect accent on this cake and would be to many other cake designs as well, especially this time of year!

Edible decoupage is a super cool technique to be used on cakes. Decoupage is the art or craft of decorating objects with paper cut-outs. Layering the images as Liz did also adds even more interest.

Liz demonstrates how to arrange the flowers, buds and berries on the cake to create a look that’s appealing to the eye.


Here she is, the full beauty in all her glory. Love the theme of this cake and how Liz brought it to life!
