I have a request for a wedding cake that inspired by the 1940's
I have had a look and art deco (my 1st thought) was more 1920-30 and retro (my second thought) 1950-60
anyone got any ideas that will suit this theme?
Boy, when I think 1940s I think WWII, Bette Davis, old Hollywood, stuff like that. Don't know if that will help any though.
I would google 1940s fashion, 1940s designs and 1940s prints and see if you can get any inspiration from those.
Maybe gather inspiration from something like this?
If it were me I would do a two tier with ruffles on the bottom like this :
and then embellishments on the top tier
I would do a cake in the Lambeth Method. This is when the technique orginated. It is beautifully traditional. I think it is an amazing technique as well, but it would definitely take a little practice. You may want to consider this. Take a look at Gefion's cakes for an idea of what I'm talking about. There are some lovely photos in Gefion's gallery.
