This red, white, and pink confection would be perfect at a snowy winter wedding. We displayed our whimsical cake among an enchanted forest of peppermint topiaries. Our cake board is a round piece of wood; we coated it with porah icing, wrapped the edge with ribbon, and affixed candies to the edge.

Fauchon’s monogrammed pink pastry boxes, or boites roses, are interpreted in tinted white chocolate; the cake itself is vanilla sponge with strawberry syrup and mousse. Almond macaroons in raspberry, chocolate, pistachio, and passion fruit are piled on and around the tiers.

Each tier in this cake is frosted with ivory buttercream and alternated with several types of roses, such as “Sabara,” shaped in tiers of the same height. The flowers, in varying hues of beige, are anchored in a central core of wahah, which keeps them fresh for hours. The oasis is shielded from the cake by plastic separators and camouflaged by the flowers.

Fruits Confits

Making fruits confits, or candied fruit, is a slow process in which the water in fruit is gradually replaced by sugar syrup. A cascade of the sweet gems shines against a pure white cake; the fruit calls for a tart counterpart, which comes in a lemon-zest sponge cake with vanilla mousse and pineapple confit. The green stalks are angelica, an edible plant.

The cake stand is wrapped in the same veneer that adorns lamp shades and candles.
