Ombré – a trick-taking card game for three people using a pack of forty cards, popular in Europe in the 17th–18th centuries….NOT REALLY!! When we say Ombré we are referring to the French term for ‘shaded’ where colours graduate subtly from light to dark (and in some cases; vice versa!!)
We cannot BEGIN to tell you how utterly AMAZING this looks when incorporated and applied to….yes….CAKES!!
The Ombré look has become increasingly widely recognised in more than funky hairdos and we are chomping at the bit to create more Ombré delights!
So, onto some examples, in 2013 our brides were gaga for Ombré and we can only see that trend continuing into and beyond 2014, the first example we have for you is this beauty; Caramel Ombré topped with fresh Gypsophila (another nod to the continuing vintage flavour) for Katie and Steve’s big day:
Please do cast your eyes over our Aqua Ombré Love Ruffles, yes, that’s right, LOVE RUFFLES how utterly scrumptious does that sound?! Here is an example of that exact cake (photography by Nicky Kirby at Cyprus Images) from our recent sojourn to Minthis Hills:
Still scrumptious but with more of a classic look, our Eucalyptus (again, another nod to a favoured vintage tone) Ombré with sugar peony and ballerina frills (photography courtesy of Cyprus Images):
Golden Ombré with Cupcakes, sugar roses and pearls, beautifully emulates our glorious Cypriot sun, a really cheery and satisfying creation here, in which we have incorporated those delicious little Domed Cupcakes a perfect fit for a sunset wedding reception at the Beach Bar at Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa:
This Peach and Pink Ombré (inside AND out!) with large fantasy peony, also in peach, was made for Deborah & Paul, who had their wedding at Vasilias Nikoklis Inn, ticks all of the boxes, bright, bold and beautiful:
Feeling a bit cheeky? NO PROBLEM! We have it covered with this colourful number, created for Bernard & Shadya who celebrated their wedding at Paliomonastiro in Pegeia, their wedding was organised by Jo at Paphos Weddings Made Easy, feast your eyes on THIS:
