We’re back again with our favorite silk flower company, AFloral, to create a boho inspired wedding cake with silk flowers! Seriously, they look so real right?! We’re also sharing not only how to make this one, but a breakdown of costs so you can see how affordable this one is! It might surprise you. This DIY is perfect if you’re throwing an engagement party, bridal shower or a low-key wedding! Doesn’t take much to make a simple cake really shine with this one.

 

Thanks so much to The Bride Concierge for lending us their gold rimmed cake plate to pretty this one up!

• Scissors
• Cake stand

 

Breakdown of costs: Cake $27.99 + Flowers $39.32 (+shipping) = $67.31

 

Ordering tip: These costs are based off of what is photographed in the photos, but you may want to order more/less depending on the size of your cake and design you want. Have fun with it!steps1-4

Step 1: Begin by cutting your focal flowers (Peony + Dahlia) down to a short stem and placing into the top of the cake.

Step 2: Fill with some filler flowers (like Dusty Miller) to add some texture. Use the icing to your advantage and stick the flowers into the cake to hold.

Step 3: Next move down to the middle and add some smaller focus flowers (Clematis + bud of a Ranunculus) as well as another sprig of Dusty Miller.

Step 4: Move to the bottom of your cake with a few bigger focal flowers again (Succulent + Ranunculus). This will create great symmetry with your cake.final1final2final3final4final5

Such pretty spring color inspiration! Lovin’ how realistic these flowers look, too!
