This stunning cake wreath is a perfect festive treat. The combination of the marble blended background reflecting the night sky and the floral fancy wreath is all together a feast in the eyes. The rugged twigs that intertwine each other highlight the natural beauty of the other elements: the scattering of Orange Peonies and White Poinsettias, which together with a few pine cones, cotton flowers, berries, foliage and other natural adornments combine to make such a rich display.

About Valeri Valeriano & Christina Ong

Valeri Valeriano and Christina Ong had their eureka moment in buttercream decorating in a small kitchen equipped with an oven the size of a toaster in 2011.

Following a YouTube tutorial, and armed with a ziplock bag, they discovered a passion so vibrant in its colours and so beautiful that it had since taken their lives in an entirely different direction – all over the world.

The Queens of Buttercream elevated buttercream art by putting art into cake canvas. They developed the most intensive and extensive techniques in buttercream decorations and taught classes throughout Europe, the United States, Asia, the Middle East and Australia
