My contribution to Be My Valentine: Movie Nights. My Inspiration movie was The Mask of Zorro with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas. I love the Spanish style and thought it would lend itself well to a romantic themed cake. I imagined something with black and red, lace and roses. I sculpted the characters in a cameo style out of modeling chocolate and I chose a romantic embrace for the pose. I have been playing with ideas for unique tier shapes and heights and this project lent itself well to this tapered column I have been wanting to try. Overall I feel like I was able to capture a romantic moment that evokes the Spanish flair of The Mask of Zorro.
