Parrot and Button Tulips

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2003

Give a beloved bloom a place of honor in the bride's bouquet and on the wedding cake. An abundance of ruffled parrot tulips and smooth button tulips appears to flicker with apricot-hued light; pale lime strokes of color add radiance, and a yellow satin ribbon is the perfect accent. On a cake the tulips' elegant silhouettes are showcased.

This cake seems to rise from a garden of tulips, which match the blooms of the bouquet. The stems are secured in water-filled tubes tucked into a fondant-covered Styrofoam tier.
