It was absolutely gorgeous! I can't find any pics of cakes with fondant work like that. Anyone who seen it have any ideas about how it's done. I looked for a pic of her cake but it's not posted online yet.

Several articles say it's by Cheryl Kleinman, but I'm not finding any pictures yet. icon_smile.gif

Cool how it resembles the top of her dress. Is that fondant?

You know, if you look at it closely it looks like they used ribbons of fondant, starting from the bottom of a tier and working up, that they pull out in different places. That would require a lot of playing with the fondant as it dried out to make it stand out like that! Beautiful cake, that's for sure.

Not my tastes, but I can appreciate the work that went into it. Wow! Do you suppose the flowers are real or gumpaste. I love her headband!

It's beautiful, but a lot of hard I think. I can't tell if the flowers are gumpaste or real.

I only took the picture, lol. I didn't have time to read the article. DH was annoyed enough that I was wasting time taking the picture in the first place. icon_smile.gif

You can always find contact information for the cake decorator and see if she'd be so kind to tell you if the flowers are real or not. *shrug*

I was unable to pull the picture link (ya know, filters at work), so I was googling and read descriptions of the cake that said the flowers were real.

HOWEVER, one article said 8-tier and another said 5-tier--so we can't believe everything we read!

Real ones were used on her first wedding cake to Cinjun.....

maybe they are real...it's been so long since I've seen real ones, I'd probably think they were artificial....

Not my favorite.

Wouldn't fondant just droop? Any one else think that could be white chocolate clay?

buggus Posted 29 Aug 2009 , 6:19pm

Can't say this one is my favourite either. I think that technique on the layers kind of makes it look sloppy, or drooping

Here's another similar style cake done by Cheryl Kleinman. It was on the
NY Mag website (www.nymag dot com). Click on the weddings tab, then scroll down the page to "Grand Finales" and click on the cakes and several pictures will come up.

I just lol'd when I looked at that link, wondering how many cake civilians will look at that and say "$11 for that whole cake, what a bargain! That would be perfect for my $250 budget for 200 guests at my wedding." icon_lol.gif

Alyssa's cake reminds me a lot of the skirt on this one, here on CC: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1313492

I LOVE the cake and it looks really easy to do (except for the flowers) . I've done a similar technique with my second fondant cake.

And yet another with that type of ruffling...

She also posted instruction in "I won best in show in AZ show" She wrote it in comments under her cake. I like her ruffles better. Interesting how with effort , one can look so nice. I like the technique, but think Alyssa's cake looks a little sloppy compared to our own CCer's cake.

I had to do a double-take on that price, too! LOL! Then I realized - oh wait, that's per slice!
