|Style||Elegant, Simple, Innovative, Modern|
Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I had painted this wedding cake to resemble some fabric lace that I copied. I used gel colors mixed with vodka to paint with. On top there is a hand made sugar peony.
What are you most proud of? How it came out, the bride told me she wanted an elegant, sophisticated and sexy cake :) Was a fun one to design!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to paint! I always practice with various colors of fondant along with several shades of a color so I can see what will look best. Make them big enough so that you can see various shades of petal/luster dust and you'll see some gorgeous colors come to life!
