I love making wedding cakes. What I love about making wedding cakes is that I get to be a part of their love story.

The couple who ordered this is of different nationalities. The groom is Bulgarian and the bride is Filipina. The theme of their cake is “Come fly with me” so I made a sash out of fondant with those words and put it at the bottom of the globe. On the globe, I put two flags of their respective countries. I also added a Bulgarian and a Philippine passport on the cake.

The cake itself is a 3D cake. I sculpted several layers of cake to make it look like an antique suitcase. To make it look like so, I hand-painted edible gold luster on the luggage latches and dry brushed cocoa powder to achieve a shabby-chic effect.
