It was an honor to be asked by Sam to be part of this collaboration. I love bridal dresses. The dress I chose was one that I had seen a long time ago and etched in my memory. I made it just as I remembered it with the rustic gold and hand painted jewels. A big thank you to Sam for inviting me to this collaboration. Truly an honor.
So a little details on the cake. Well it's a dummy cake of course. Most collaborations usually involved using dummy so we don't have to waste cake but also so we get more working time.
Inspiration for the cake.
Most of the other cake artist used dresses from famous designers and asked their permission to recreate the dress. However, I wanted to make this one. A long time ago I use to work for advertising and back then I fell in love with this Exotic Black Dress with was very similar to a Bridal dress. I was so in love with the dress I so wished I could afford it. Of course it was so expensive that I'd probably had to invest a full years salary. (back then I didn't earn much lol )
So this has been on my mind and when I was asked to make a Bridal Dress - I knew I had to make this at least in cake. You know if you can't afford the dress at least I can afford the cake.
Some details of my Bridal Dress Cake for you.
The bottom tier is stenciled. I love how rich the gold on black looks .
The middle tier is molds I have use then highlighted the stones in red paint. And I used a Marvelous Broach mold here.
The scarf is again stenciled gold on red. And of course I've used my homemade edible sugar lace recipe to make the lace. I airbrushed it gold.
I hope you like this cake. Is there any technique you'd like to learn from this cake? Let me know in the comments below so I can put it on my list of ideas for future tutorials. Thanks
