What inspired the design of this stunning cake? Kara's Couture Cakes: The idea of “A Black Tie Affair” immediately pointed me to a classic color scheme and, working with a new line of Sarah’s Stands cake stands, I felt it only appropriate to use some new and modern cake techniques. Having eloped 10 years ago, I’ve had plenty of time while designing cakes to daydream of what I would have loved at my own wedding. My imagination spun thoughts of sequins shining, rich and lavish ruffles, romantic lace and a poignant pop of color.
