Edible Pearls: Mikimoto-Inspired Wedding Cake

Sep 10, 2010

As you plan your wedding day, one of the most delectable details is the cake tasting. There is a wide variety of cake designs and flavors to choose from, and we were thrilled to come across a cake on “The Bride’s Guide” from Martha Stewart Weddings that was inspired by one of our favorite brands, Mikimoto.

Maggie LaBaugh, chef and owner of MagPie’s Cake in Washington, D.C., has created an exquisite black pearl cake that illustrates elegance, detail, and sophistication with its white fondant, black “pearls” and weathered “shell.”

“For hundreds of years, the Black South Sea pearl has been revered as one of nature’s most exquisite and rare creations. When Kokichi Mikimoto opened his first pearl shop in 1899, the cultured treasures were put into reach at last,” says LaBaugh. “This cake, like the oyster itself, is a study in contrast: shimmering black spheres tumble from the rough, weathered shell perched on smooth white fondant. Take a bite! It’s all sugar…”

If you’d rather wear your pearls instead of eat them, King Jewelers offers a wide selection of Mikimoto pearls, including earrings, necklaces, and rings featuring Black South Sea pearls. They also make great gifts for your bridal party!
