So, part 2 of the National Capital Area Cake Show is the wedding cakes! Everyone loves the wedding cake competition.

Here was the competition information sheet that competitors were to base their cake design off of for the show.

  • The ceremony will be outside on the patio, and the reception will be inside in the converted barn.
  • The wedding colors chosen by the bride are ivory, navy, and kiwi green.
  • The bride will be wearing a dress by Alfred Angelo (style 1719), in ivory with a navy ribbon.
  • Bouquet: Ivory Roses with grass blades looping through with a navy blue ribbon on the stems. She’s also having ivory Calla Lilies, mini ivory Cymbidium Orchids, and Peonies at the reception. Kortni would love to see these flowers incorporated in her cake design.
