I got the inspiration for this cake from sandralita, sweetresults, and kden3980! Thank you all for posting your incredible creations!
I did this for one of the women who take care of my disabled husband during the day so I can work. The dress, the first that I've done, is a replica of her wedding gown, or at least as close as I could get it. The black ribbon wasn't ornate enough for my taste, so I sewed on the silver ribbon accent! What do you think?
