My Wedding Cake Inspired By Georgia O'keeffe

I was asked to create a non-traditional wedding cake that was colorful, and inspired by one of the bride's favorite artists - Georgia O'Keeffe. I drew inspiration from several of O'Keeffe's paintings. I tried a few new things with this wedding cake, including sculpting a cow skull from modeling chocolate. I created the morning glories and leaves from gumpaste. The tree was made from modeling chocolate. I also tried my hand at painting a landscape - inspired by O'Keeffe's love of Mount Pedernal, where her ashes were scattered. Before painting the cake, I textured it with royal icing. I wasn't sure about how all of this would come together, but I really loved it in the end.
