I have an exam in Royal Icing Techniques coming off and one of my projects is a royal iced board, which I have to put on sectional collars and a run out motiff.
I seen a beautiful picture in a magazine that I would like to re-create, but it was a miniature photo on a readers page, not a good angle to photocopy as a template, the cake designer's name wasn't shown.
Basically it had a pink background and a black silhouette of an Art Deco Lady in what I can only describe as a skull cap with three feathers sticking out of it, it was just her face.
I can't find the picture or even something similar online so far and I was wondering if anyone would know a website which I might get Art Deco designs from (like colouring pages, etc). I'm also looking for idea's for floating collars in Art Deco also.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Not sure about the pink cake itself, but I think you are describing the famous Art Deco movement work of Erte, from the 1920s? He was a Russian-born artist, but was famous for his work in Paris...especially his depictions of glamourous and elegant women in fashions of that era.
I'm pretty sure this is what you were looking at?
I actually found the logo I was looking for on an Auction Site called Ruby Lane, luckily I saved it to my hard disk I noticed this evening, its gone!!!
Anyway thanks for your help.
