Fashion Inspired Cake

For something different since you’re probably all sick of the sight of this cake haha…..my inspiration was a beautiful soft pink Chanel dress on a model at the end of a catwalk. So I knew straight away I wanted my cake to have an hourglass figure (lets bring it back lol) and I wanted to suggest a vintage dressmakers mannequin….so here we are. The roses are assembled petal at a time, each one veined and fluted as the beautiful Michelle Rea taught me. I then dusted each centre and petal edge with copper lustre dust. It took a week and a half to make the roses alone. I made close to 100…put the whole thing together, rang the photographer to tell him it was ready, then promptly dropped it….now down to 72 roses :( He cleverly some of the broken roses as dropped petals under the cake. It’s now sitting in my hallway and I smile and nod at it every time I walk past…yes I may be just a little crazy haha! Thanks so much for letting me show you AGAIN :) xxxx
