I am absolutely delighted to share with you my contribution for the Avant Garde Cake collaboration which was revealed a couple days ago.
My inspiration came from the designer Krikor Jabotian as many of you know I simply LOVE ruffles and was instantly drawn to his creations.
Apart from trying out new techniques I really wanted the ‘Dress’ to resemble the designers as much as possible but creating them with icing isn’t that easy!
The folds/drapes really tested me as I had cut out templates so many times trying to get the correct look, this was quite difficult
Side view to show you the detail. I gave the middle tier a lustre look so that the dress top would show up more, the tiny flowers I embossed and of course tiny pearl buttons to finish it off
The head piece………..now this as you all know me and flowers on wires DON’T GET ON but I was determined. I used flowerpaste to get the thicker longer/leafy curly look and then painted and buffed it to give the gold/bronzy look. There’s also some curled silver beargrass in there.
I was thrilled to bits to be part of a very talented group of artists from around the world who have created some fantastic pieces of art. A MASSIVE thanks to Rebekah for all her hard work really don’t know how she does it as well as produce stunning creations of her own!!
