Glitz and Glam Wedding Fashion with Sugar Diamonds and Silver Leaf

12239 60 46

This cake was created for the Summer 2013 Quarterly Award Contest on It based on a wedding fashion inspiration board I have created on Pinterest. To view the board, click here:

The board was generated based on what I would want my wedding dress to look like if I had an endless budget :) Diamond and pearl encrusted, covered in silver, big, rich, deep swaggy ruffles…

The cake stand is hand created and is a permanent structure attached to the board. The base board is hand crafted faux distressed/bleached wood, made with fondant and accented with petal dusts. The cake has Isomalt sugar diamonds, edible silver leaf, silver and pearl dragees. The ruffles were created with confectioner’s wafer so they would be light, ethereal and translucent like one of the dresses on my Pinterest board.
