North Florida Cake Show Entry 2015 "Paper Dress"

Daily Top 3 - Jun 29, 2015

This cake was for the North Florida Cake show and competition. The theme was “couture dress”. This cake was inspired by a dress made or recycled paper. The leaves and loops were made of fondant/gum paste cover with edible images and hand cut. The images were all things inspired by nature. The flower was made of gum paste and air brushed with red and a salmon pearl for a little shimmer. The color was set on a stark white to give it pop and the board was left with all white fondant to not draw away from the colors of the cake. It consists of 28 edible images sheets, 10 lbs of fondant, 3 lbs of gum paste and 7 dummy cakes.

Supplies: edible images gumpaste gum paste gumpaste flower dragees fondant/gumpaste mix silicone mold airbrushed airbrush colors

Tools: rolling pin rolling pin and knife fondant roller exacto knife lustre dust airbrush

I happened to have seen this cake in person and this cake is so perfect in every way you would have a hard time finding any fault with this cake…I know, I judged it!!! It came in 3rd for a few reasons but perfection it was.

Just wanted to show the pic of this cake that was taken from my phone. This cake was impressive!!! Each piece of edible paper looked like fabric. I usually would not write 2 comments but I just don’t feel the pictures of this piece still do it justice!
