Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers-The fashion inspiration issue




                                   Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers- The fashion inspiration issue
As a regular contributor to Cake Craft Guides- Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers Magazine and Party Cakes Magazine, I was very excited to hear the theme for issue 24. The issue is all about fashion inspired cakes!                                      I was given the task of designing a cake inspired by a Zuhair Murad gown. After looking through some wedding gowns, I quickly found a gown that I loved! Zuhair Murad's 'Tiana' gown with its sequins and floral embellishments became my design inspiration.

Here is a look at my initial design and notes for the wedding cake design.

Here is the completed design, beautifully photographed by Melissa Beattie photography. The design features sequins, chocolate jewels and embellished flowers.

The new issue which is available at to purchase here features my step-by-step tutorial for how to make this cake, including instructions for how to create your own jewel mould!







Here is a sneak peek at the inside of the magazine.

 This was a really fun project to work on and I'm looking forward to sharing my next project for Party Cakes Magazine, which will be out later this year!

Glacier Gray

Glacier gray has been chosen as one of Pantone's colours of spring 2015. 
PANTONE describes Glacier Gray as "an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage". 
This makes it the perfect choice for weddings. It can be used as a neutral in its own right or paired with more vibrant colours such as yellow, coral and purple.
