Bridesmaids’ Dresses, Winter Wonderland & BBQ Picnic Cakes
Robin in Minnesota creates a bridal shower cake that’s a stunning salute to being many times a bridesmaid, and now happily a bride. Christopher designs a wedding cake that’s a twist on a classic BBQ picnic, with checkered tablecloths, watermelon, dandelions and dragonflies. White Flower in Ohio dreams up dangling snowflakes and rock sugar sparkle.
Hailey & Chelsea are hosting a bridal shower for their soon-to-wed older sister, Heather, with a specific theme: it’s an ode to being many times a bridesmaid, now happily a bride. The sisters and guests all plan to wear real bridesmaid dresses that they’ve worn to other weddings. Robin designs a cake that replicates 3 of the brightly colored bridesmaid dresses previously worn by the bride-to-be. The Gateaux team molds dress forms out of white chocolate and the plan is to drape stunning fondant “fabric” to form the dresses, but that proves to be harder than they planned for. And to complicate things, Robin still needs to sculpt high-heeled shoes and an edible bridal bouquet before time runs out.
Christopher at Christopher Garren’s Cakes meets Sarah and Brian, a down-to-earth couple who want a wedding cake that’s not formal or fussy. Chris gets his design inspiration from Sarah and Brian’s wedding invitation, which features a fun picnic theme. Chris and his team will create picnic tablecloths out of fondant to drape from the cake layers, watermelon slices to balance on the tiers, and dragonflies and dandelions will complete his vision. Ever the perfectionist, Chris wants to make sure that Kristen creates watermelon slices that appear very real. He asks his newest intern, Junior, to find three unique watermelons to use as references. But accident-prone Junior ends up bringing only two melons back to the bakery – what happened to the third? Will the California team be able to pull all the details of this intricate cake together and get it done to Chris’ satisfaction?
Kate & Anthony come to White Flower bakery for a wedding cake inspired by their winter trip to Paris, where Anthony proposed. Lauren suggests a shimmering design with lots of snowflakes and sparkle. The bride loves the idea, but cautions that the ivory colored cake must be elegant, not gaudy, with only a hint of sparkle. Lauren is inspired to find a way to make snowflakes dangle from cake, something they’ve never done before, but Marianne is worried. How are they going to hang the dangling snowflakes? And the pressure is on to make sure they don’t go too far with shimmering elements - how much sparkle is too much or too little? They create a tall, elegant cake with twinkles of rock sugar and dangling snowflakes, but will it survive the icy delivery and make it intact to this winter wonderland wedding?
