Paper Lantern Cake

At Dream Day Cakes®, we love creating unique cakes for any occasion. Every now and then, we receive the opportunity to create unique wedding cakes — take for example a recent wedding here in Gainesville, Florida. The bride had us recreate a Japanese style paper lantern in cake. =)

This cake featured the bride and groom’s name in Japanese letters, sugar bamboo, sugar flowers, a custom message, and a paper lantern.

We love when everything on the cake can be made edible. The framing, the flowers, the letters… this cake was a completely edible centerpiece.

The cake was delivered to Plantation Hall here in Gainesville, Florida. Keith Watson Productions had transformed the venue into something simply incredible.

From the sugar flowers (and bamboo) to the surprise message, we loved working on this Japanese paper lantern cake. From our bakery in Gainesville, Florida, we believe that every celebration deserves Dream Day Cakes.
