Homemade fondant, gumpaste roses made using Nicolas Lodge's gumpaste recipe.
What was your inspiration?
Bridal shower elements included, striped pattern in these colors, pink roses, black bows, pearls, heart necklaces, and black and white damask. I incorporated these elements into the cake design so it would compliment the shower decor perfectly. Realistic roses were inspired by gumpaste flower instruction from Nicolas Lodge.
What are you most proud of?
How real looking the flowers turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Ask about all of the elements of the decor for design inspiration. Think outside the box and deconstruct design elements to their basic form. Then reassemble them in a way that will work for your own design. You don't HAVE to use every element in your design - just the key parts that invoke the original inspiration. Your goal is to make it beautiful - not necessarily identical.
