Vintage Cakes, Modern Methods

Add antique appeal to your fondant! Adorned with colorful peonies and lilies of the valley and gilded cages, your cakes will evoke a bygone era. Colette Peters' innovative brush embroidery techniques make petals and leaves look stitched, whether they're applied directly onto the cake or added on as three-dimensional gum-paste embellishments. You'll turn royal icing into a gilded, filigree cake cage to surround your masterpiece for a major wow! effect. And if you love Victorian cameo jewelry, you'll be charmed by Colette's antiqued and edible accoutrements.
