Kachnar Goddess

This was my contribution to the Elegant Indian Fashion collaboration The flowers, made of gum paste, are the blossoms of the Indian orchid tree, also known by their Hindi name, kachnar. The cake is two extended tiers and a modified separator covered in orange, rose gold and draped magenta fondant standing 24” tall. A 50/50 mix of fondant and modelling chocolate was used for the trim ribbons that are adorned with isomalt gems and dragees. The strung jewelry beads are made of isomalt and gum paste was used for the hand cut scroll work and brooches. The side drape is made from a gelatin mixture that I made to stay pliable allowing it to hang like fabric. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
