An Enchanted Unveiling: Yevnig Davis Launches Her Latest Cake Collection

Yevnig Davis

From the whimsical magic of fairies, the beauty of trailing fresh florals to the majestic inspiration drawn from Roman Greek architecture, Yevnig presents six brand new cakes for her 2019/2020 collection.  Every single petal, cherub and royal iced detail has been completely hand-crafted from scratch.  As with every cake Yevnig creates, artistry and grandeur with a contemporary twist is at the heart of each unique design.

Yevnig Says:

“I have always been enamoured by the beauty of nature and the charm of fairies, combined with a love for material textures and architecture. The Enchanted Unveiling is a very personal collection, sharing the passion and love for my creative platform of sugar artistry. I adore all things pretty and girly, nature orientated, colourful, happy, elegantly floral, and I have designed these cakes with a nod to historic architecture and dress fabrics. This collection was my chance to show my love for creating intricate and show-stopping centrepiece cakes alongside a diversity of creativity to suit each and every bride. 

I will always be inspired by my brides, their choices and their weddings. I always want to give a piece of art crafted with passion for the best day of their lives.”

Elizabeth

Inspired by the rich history of the Elizabethan era, this five-tier design epitomises the grandeur and elegance of 16th Century royal costume. Alongside Queen Elizabeth’s famed frilled collar, jewelled headpiece and crown, detail is drawn from the jewelled embroideries, Elizabethan ruffs, farthingales, pristine lace and pearl embroidery of the period. Hand-crafted sugar flowers adorn the cake, aged in beautiful dusky blushes and olive greens.

Antonia-Sophie

Celebrating the beauty of summertime, this charming floral design is the perfect embodiment of the English country garden. Inspiration is taken from the delicate silky petals of flowers such as lilacs, roses, hydrangeas and deep pink hellebores. The cake is crafted with an abundance of flowing dainty sugar blooms in a pretty pastel colour palette trailing across five tiers.

Chrysa

The translation of Chrysa (from the Greek name Chryso) is ‘golden’. Inspired by the art and literature of the Golden Age of Greece (300-500BC), this six-tier ivory cake wrapped with a golden olive leaf border and swirl-wrapped sugar flower cascade, evokes the wild romance of the era. The orchid and hydrangea florals are hand-crafted in shimmering blush tones.

It’s Time To Eat The Cake!

Couple Cake

 

Upon arrival at the wedding reception, many guests head for the cake table so they can admire the cake. Some time later, the bride and groom come along for a picture opportunity and the grand cutting of the cake. Then everyone enjoys cake and it’s gone. Believe it or not, there are many more activities that can make the wedding cake more about fun and less about tradition.

Of course, watching the bride and groom push cake into each other’s mouths is a long-enjoyed tradition, but there are many more fun – and less messy – activities to consider as well.

Portrait of Woman With Pink Roses

One new option that’s gaining popularity is to have cupcakes instead of a cake. This is a method that is usually more affordable than having a cake and it can be a lot of fun. Cupcakes are decorated in alignment with the wedding theme, just as a cake is, but the cupcakes are instead arranged on tiered cake plates and displayed on a cake table until it’s time to eat them. The cupcakes can be simply handed out on plates to each wedding guest.

Now, what’s fun about using cupcakes instead of a whole wedding cake is you can save money, certainly, as many reception halls and caterers charge a per slice fee to cut and serve the wedding cake, but you can also build activities into the cupcake presentation. For example, the cupcakes that are for the bride and groom can have a different decoration than the ones for the guests.

Pink Flamingo On Top Of A Cake

As an extra touch, you can have the baker include a special prize in one or several cupcakes. A small charm or tiny toy can be baked into the cupcake. Whoever gets the charm wins a special prize. These prizes can range from a gift basket or gift certificate to a restaurant to a dance with the bride or groom.

Some brides like to use a Southern tradition and have charms baked into the wedding cake. Similar to the idea above for cupcakes, this involves baking small charms or tiny toys (but usually charms) into the cake. Those who get one of the charms are said to have good luck. You might even consider having charm bracelet charms baked into the cake, which are then made into a charm bracelet for the bride.

Not everyone enjoys cake. How about an activity for those who won’t be eating cake? They can be required to do the “Macarena” or the chicken dance during the time when everyone else is eating cake. If they manage to do the dance continuously while the other guests enjoy cake, they win a prize. Or they simply get to sit down, as now they are tired!

In keeping with the dance during cake theme, how about a requirement that in order to get cake, a guest must perform an impromptu dance first? Or there could be trivia questions about the bride and groom or about popular culture. Guests must correctly answer the questions before getting their cake. There could be competitions among tables or individuals for most questions answered correctly.

Many people believe that once the cake is cut, they are free to leave if they wish. Since cake cutting usually comes after the meal and after dancing and other traditional celebration activities, many people take the opportunity to leave the party after the cake is cut and enjoyed.

If the bride and groom want their guests to stay after the cake is eaten, it is worth some extra effort to build some activities into the cake-cutting event so people will stick around longer. This can be as simple as telling people not to leave, or can be more subtle and fun.

For example, each person could receive a slip of paper with his or her cake. These slips of paper could be prepared ahead and provided to the catering company with instructions that one folded strip of paper be placed on each plate with the cake. The paper might give an agenda for the rest of the evening or might ask its recipient to perform a little dance, to head over to give the groom or bride a kiss, or might ask them to take the flower girl out on the dance floor for a spin. The unknown will keep all the guests guessing and provide some entertainment as the instructions are carried out.

Monogram Wedding Cake Toppers

Using a monogram is a classic method to customize the look and feel of many items. An embroidered monogram in clothing can give it the extra appeal that you require in an office setting. Monogram stationery adds your own unique taste when you write letters or leave memos for others.

Monograms aren’t just for clothes and paper, either. They’re an excellent way to add a professional and elegant atmosphere to a social gathering. Monogram napkins are a great way to add class to a wedding. Also, you can use a monogram design for wedding cake toppers.

Monogram wedding cake toppers are an interesting change to the typical bride and groom adornment that is found on most cakes. With a specially designed wedding cake topper, you can build onto the atmosphere or theme that you’re looking for. At the very least, you can get rid of the ordinary bride and groom ornament and add a little pizzazz to your cake.

Creating your own custom monogram wedding cake topper couldn’t be easier. Many stores have preset designs for you to pick and choose from. If you need something simple but stylish, you can browse through the different types of lettering that is offered. Or maybe you require a look that only a specific material can fulfill. In that case, you can choose between items such as solid brushed metal or gold acrylic mirror.

Make sure to choose the right color for your monogram wedding cake topper as well. There exists a wide variety of colors to choose from. If you desire something that stands out, you can go with a ruby or topaz look. If that’s too fancy for you, there are more simple choices such as gold or silver.

There are many types of monogram wedding cake toppers for you to decide on. A crystal covered single letter monogram adds a touch of beauty to your wedding cake. A ceramic cake topper can also yield the same atmosphere while producing a different effect altogether. The possibilities are limitless.

Where would one start their search for these exquisite items? A wedding supplies and accessories store should have a few of these items in stock. You may have to look around though, especially if you are looking for something specific. Be sure to ask friends and family if they know any good wedding shops.

Being a highly unique accessory, monogram wedding cake toppers can be expensive. Depending on where you shop, you might be paying for the number of letters, the size, or the amount of decoration on the cake topper. Of course, hosting a wedding is a rare lifetime event, so don’t be afraid to spare no expense. It will be worth it when you get the design you’re looking for.

Don’t omit any small details when the time comes to plan and host your wedding. If you need a small decoration to spruce up your wedding cake, try a monogram wedding cake topper. A simple detail might just make your wedding a whole lot memorable.
