What are the most popular sugar flowers used / requested for January wedding cakes? Are there any at all? I have a 2013 January wedding cake design on my lap and looking for some ideas other than the usual roses and calla lilies.

Two things come to mind.

1. Ranunculus and kangaroo paw for flowers and color.

OR

2. Create seasonal branches and boughs covered with snow and/or ice.

There is a lovely design on Martha Stewart webpage for weddings, with snow covered pine cones it's on 'good things for winter weddings' you might get some ideas from there. thumbs_up.gif

My cousin got married in December and her cake was covered in pinecones, snowflakes and mistletoe. It was very pretty, I don't have a picture of it on hand, I would post a pic if I did.

When I think of winter weddings, I think more of rich textures and glitz, not so much flowers. Here are a couple of ideas with gorgeous cake jewelry and minimal to no flowers:

I love the suggestions so far, but here is the list I have, although I don't remember the source.

Winter: camellia, euphorbia, iris, nerine, pansy, poinsettia, snowdrop and tulip

Spring: amaryllis, anemone, daffodil, freesia, gerbera, lily of the valley, orchid, ranunculus, stephanotis, and sweet pea

Summer: anthurium, carnation, chrysanthemum, gypsophila, lily, magnolia, peony, rose and sunflower

Autumn/fall: agapanthus, aster, clematis, daisy, hosta, hydrangea, passion flower and pinks

All year round: calla lily, carnation, gypsophila, orchid, protea, rose, and tulip, (although this list may vary by region)

My list also gives color schemes, although I can think of plenty others aside from these:

White: rose, sweet pea, camellia, stephanotis, narcissus, gardenia, orchid, lily of the valley, jasmine, and gypsophila

Pink: rose, ranunculus, peony, sweet pea, carnation, tulip, protea,boronia, and lily

Lavender: lavender, lilac, anemone, statice, iris, delphinium, and hydrangea

Yellow: daffodil, sunflower, tulip, gerbera, lily, and freesia

Red: gerbera, rose, dahlia, poinsettia and amaryllis

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
