Ruffles, Lace And Jewels
My wedding cake submission for the Utah State Fair took 1st Place. My design was inspired by my mother's nostalgic pearl purse. I sculpted the heart topper out of Rice Krispie Treats & then covered it with various sizes of pearls & non-pareils. After ruffling the top & bottom tiers, I hand painted their gilded edges. I made 2 sizes of 6 petal gumpaste flowers & embossed them with my dresden tool. I molded brooches for the flower centers & hand painted them with gold & luster dust. I molded dragees using my pearl mold & painted them gold. I also made Isomalt crystals using my pearl mold. I created a 3-dimensional lace in the double barrel middle tier. I molded pieces of lace using various flower lace molds. I added the gold dragees, tiny pearls & the isomalt crystals as well as the 3 sizes of gumpaste flowers. I overpipped some of the flowers using a special technique that I learned from Kathleen Lange. I double crimped the fondant covered baseboard to create a decorative border & then hand painted it gold as well. The entire cake was dusted with super gold luster dust.
This arrangement is a mix of gum paste and cold porcelain flowers, thought with the way the small things like calixes fall off when arranging, I wish the entire thing was in Cold porcelain. I make a weekly flower tutorial on my Youtube Channelhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0qhkRbR1dw4ZhDWz2Rt-7A
