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!
