I promise to share the pictures from the event as soon as I have them, but for now here is the cake I designed for the show!
Meena (the creative mind behind 5th Avenue Weddings & Events) suggested ruffles because they are very "in" right now. So ruffles ended up being the basis behind my design for this cake. I love how the layers of fondant ruffles look like delicate fabric and give the cake a feminine and vintage-y look!
I didn't want to overwhelm my little cake with too many ruffles, so the middle layer is simply adorned with fondant, fabric-looking flowers, gumpaste "jewelry," sugar pearls and dragees...
That is not a real jewelry piece! This is a gumpaste sugar broach I made! I added sugar pearls and silver dragees for a little extra shine and sparkle. The broach itself is dusted with edible "Platinum Dust" to give it a soft metallic look. People could not believe it wasn't real :)
I had such a great time, met some beautiful brides and some really wonderful industry professionals. What an honor it was to be included. If you are in the CT/New England area check out:
