The Ultimate Silhouette Wedding Cake

Have you seen this show on BBC called Sherlock? It’s pretty amazing, in so far as detective shows go. When Lorna Lovecraft took her admiration for the series to a whole new level with a Sherlock inspired wedding shoot, the color palette, bouquets, lace-detailed everything fit right in. But what we loved most was the vintage silhouette cake which totally stole the show. We’ve seen an awesome silhouette wedding cake in the past, but this, um, takes the cake. Read on to see it!

Silhouette Cake for Weddings

This cake features three tiers, cascading flowers more incredible than any we’ve seen yet, lace embellishment along the bottom and top tiers, “pearls” made with icing, and the crowning touch: a silhouette detail of the bride and groom. It’s all set on an elegant, vintage-inspired white cake stand.

Almost too good to eat, no?

And, since I couldn’t resist, here are some other snapshots from the shoot. The groom’s attire = a perfect look for this vintage vibe!

Silhouette Chair Signs

I’ll never know what it is that fascinates me so about chair signs. But, alas, I’ve found yet another that has stolen my heart. These gold-framed silhouette chair signs are all kinds of lovely, especially the gold framing and the black-and-white profile print. I would recommend these chair signs for a vintage wedding theme, particularly one that incorporates rich pops of gold. What I love most about these silhouette chair signs is the ability to use them again as charming home decor. How’s that for money well spent?
