Hi dear friends:
I've been asked to make an art deco cake using Frank Lloyd Wright's stained glass pieces as inspiration.

I'm really excited about the idea because is not a typical wedding cake, the bride wants the cake to have the construction of the cake on this picture, but I was wondering how to get the 'glass' effect on the cake.

I've seen a 'Tiffany lamp' cake around here with the look I would like to get, but I can't find the picture.
I was planning to do a fondant covered cake, lots of luster dust and a very thin coat of piping gel to give the glassy illusion.

I know piping gel takes for EVER(!!!) to dry and I don't want to end up with a gluey/sticky cake.

What do you guys recommend?

Thank you.
LL

I think you've posted the wrong cake. That is definately not Art Deco. I would call it 'Mod' (late 50s-early 60s).

Google 'frank lloyd wright stained glass' and all sorts of lovely images pop up.

Thank you Chutzpah.

The bride wants this off-centered construction on her cake but with F.L.W. artwork on it instead of this 'Mod' decoration.

If you mix vodka with piping gel it won't be near as sticky and easier to paint. You can also buy confectioner's glaze at IntoTheOven (best price).

Okay, thanks for explaining that! I was confused.

Thinking of that Simon & Garfunkel song........

I just saw some sparkling piping gel at a supply store here. Maybe that would help too? icon_confused.gif
