Twist on SHABBY CHIC for ACD Magazine's January Trends Issue

Daily Top 3 - Feb 13, 2016

Oh my it’s been SO long since I’ve posted a cake and I’ve been out of it since Christmas with the holidays, kids and projects. Sorry I’ve been so sporadic on CD. It’s been so hectic that I didn’t even realize I never posted this one here when the magazine released.

I was invited by Rebekah of Rebekah Naomi Cake Design to contribute to American Cake Decorating Magazine’s January Trends Issue. We each chose a trend to add a bit of our own twist to and I chose SHABBY CHIC. I wanted to show that a classic design with dressed up vintage influences can be given a modern vibe. I used the traditional pastel colour palettes associated with shabby chic on this cake but paired them with modern lines, shapes and techniques.

Thanks to Rebekah for thinking of me for this project. I hope you all like it. TFL – Violet

Supplies: satin ice fondant satin ice gum paste
