In the latest holiday issue of Cake Central Magazine (Volume 4, Issue 12), we asked cakemakers to create holiday wedding cakes that combined traditional imagery with modern motifs. We loved JoAnn’s holiday wedding bells cake and wanted to take a closer look! Read on to learn about JoAnn’s design process.
CAKE CENTRAL: What elements of the inspiration photos attracted your attention?
JOANN MAGUIRE: At first sign I picked up on the curves in the bell interior and the lines in the texture mat background. The flow of the bell interior design set the idea of creating a cake having a flowing elegant design screaming “Winter Wonderland”.
JM: When I started to sketch the cake all I could think about was the beauty of snow and thinking winter wonderland. I wanted to include techniques I have used and loved. I began to sketch away as I put my ideas into creating a cake that was all white with silver details, diamonds and everything that I thought would flow together into an elegant unique design.
