Once Upon a Time Midsummer Night’s Themed Cake & Lighting

Fairytale Once Upon a Time Midsummer Nights Dream cake with texture lighting and cake spotlight.

Fairytale “Once Upon a Time” / “Midsummer Nights Dream” cake with texture lighting and cake spotlight.

Beautiful cake display with a fairytale “Once Upon a Time” or “Midsummer Night’s Dream” cake. There’s lot’s going on in the photo so we’ll breakdown the elements used to create it.

  1. The purple lighting effect is from wireless uplights. This creates the base effect around the cake and throughout the room.
  2. Texture lighting is the pattern that shows up on the pipe and drape behind the cake. In this photo a simple breakup pattern was used to create a light and dark dreamy feeling.
  3. Pipe and drape was used behind the cake to soften up the wall that is normally there in the room.
  4. Trees were brought in (venue actually had them in there) and put behind the cake. We hung fairy berries in the branches to create slowly glowing magical firefly effect.
  5. Under the table lighting was achieved but using two of our wireless uplights.
  6. Candles and flower petals were used around the base of the cake with a  fabric wrap on the bottom of the cake stand to help feature the detail of the cake.
  7. Cake spotlights were used to help the cake stand out in the room and completed the look.

These lighting elements combine to create a beautifully dreamy and elegant atmosphere turning the cake from just a dessert sitting in the dark into a decor piece.
