Forever Floral

The delicate yet bold accents of the orchid’s distinctive blossoms bring sophistication and exotic flair to any cake.

Exquisite Elegance
Always unforgettable, the calla lily’s graceful curvature lends an enchanting and refined air to any design.

Playful Energy
A natural pair, phlox and zinnia highlight the joy and energy of a summer celebration.

Carefree and Classic
The clean, creamy palette of the gardenia exudes ethereal delicacy, making it a natural companion to cakes with a timeless design.

Boho Chic
Playful and subtly sophisticated, the pink ranunculus captures the fun, flirtation and felicity of the season.

Sun-kissed Radiance
The ranunculus’ bold, primary colors bring to mind the glow of the summer sun against a rich, azure sky.
