Lotus Blossom, Gypsy Rose, Mini Swans
Christopher Garren’s team makes an elaborately detailed cake with the Lotus Blossom as inspiration. Will the whole team come together to pull off this design? Plus, the LA bakery folds fondant to evoke fabric and trims it with gold tassels. And, NY goes into assembly-line mode to crank out 80 mini-swan cakes.
A couple seeks out Christopher Garren’s Cakes to create a non-traditional wedding cake. In fact, they say they don’t want "their mother’s wedding cake." The couple specifically wants to incorporate Lotus flowers (because they reconnected at LA’s Lotus Festival after first meeting in New York City), henna designs, and lots of color. Chris is overjoyed because he gets to use the airbrush, create appliqués and detailed mosaics, and sculpt the layers into hourglass shapes. Chris gets the whole team involved in crafting the elaborate decorations, with fingers crossed that when all the parts come together, it will be a glorious yet cohesive cake design.
Reva at Merci Beaucoup Cakes designs a wedding cake with dramatic draping effects in fondant, as a nod to the bride’s interest in acting. There is also the tedious project of cutting out dozens of tiny tassels to trim the "fabric" draping. Thank goodness Marc has a background in the fashion industry, because he’s definitely going to have to help with this one...
At Cake Alchemy, Lauri meets with a client who only has one request for her wedding cake, and that’s to incorporate the groom’s last name, Swan, into the design. Sounds relatively simple, except Lauri always has to raise the bar: why make just one cake when you can make EIGHTY little ones instead? The Cake Alchemy team swings into assembly-line mode to crank out dozens of individual wedding cakes, each with a poured sugar swan on top.
