VALENTINO Inspired Black & White Ruffles

Did this small cake (6″ × 6″ and 5″ × 3″) for a special personal occasion. I saw a dress by Valentino on-line and instantly wanted to represent it in cake and wanted to do it originally with a bright pink accent flower. Then I thought it might look nice in just black & white so did a white version of the flower. After, I thought maybe both flowers? Can’t seem to make up my mind so I’ve included all versions here.

My first time with ruffles of any kind and I must say, doing a double layer ruffle was perhaps not a great first ruffle to try! The fondant was drying out faster than I could get the double done and it didn’t ruffle quite the way I wanted.

On a funny note, I saw an ad for ShopBop (?) on CakesDecor after I made it, of the exact dress! Haven’t seen it again since but thought it was ironic!

TFL =D

What a stunning cake Violet! You really did an amazing job making your inspiration dress into a cake! I love it all three ways, but probably my favorite is with the bright pink flower!!

Violet, you probably saw the exact dress in an ad here because the computer keeps tract of sites and things you like to look at, and then they show up in an ad especially for you. It happens to me a lot. I was looking at invitations for a farm themed party for my grandson’s birthday, and what ad just popped on my screen, farm animal birthday party invitations! Scary isn’t it, our computer keeps tract of everything!!!
