Tiffany Lamp-Shade With Grapes And Vines

Tiffany Lamp-Shade With Grapes And Vines on Cake Central

A Big Thank You to Karateka. The original idea of using a real lamp-stand and setting the cake on it is hers.

The fondant is lustre-dusted with dry gold and then the grapes and vines are hand-painted on.Then again I used two shades of lustre dust for the leaves, and amethyst lustre dust for the grapes. The "lead" is black fondant, thinned and piped. The finial is fondant and painted with piping gel and colour, for shine and to match the wooden lamp-stand.

Thank You Everyone! To answer the ?s... I make my own fondant, just thinned with water it till it was good piping consistency. The cakes were one 13" round and one baked in a steel mixing bowl. I later carved them a bit. For the picture of the lampstand itself, email me at [email protected]


This is stunning! What did you make the cakes in and what did the lamp look like under the cake? This is a work of art.


This is beautiful! 8O I just showed my husband and he couldn't believe it was a cake! You did a wonderful job. I don't think I would've ever thought of anything like this.
