Cake Design Made Simple: The Wedding Dress

with Rachael Teufel
Translate the beauty and elegance of a bride’s dress into cake with help from cake designer Rachael Teufel.

With cake artist Rachael Teufel as your guide, you'll learn how to make wedding dress cakes that cater to modern brides looking for one-of-a-kind designs. Whether it's replicating a dress with carved cake and embellishments made from gumpaste and modeling chocolate, or drawing inspiration from the gown, invitation and more, Rachael will show you the best way to deliver a bit of marital bliss one piece at a time. Along the way, you'll learn to texture modeling chocolate to resemble the most fashion-forward bridal fabrics and form tiny sequins and blossoms to emulate fine details.
