Edible Art of the Day Winner for Wednesday, August 21 Raewyn Read.
My inspiration for this cake was a beautiful soft pink Chanel dress on a model at the end of a catwalk. So I knew straight away I wanted my cake to have an hourglass figure (lets bring it back lol) and I wanted to suggest a vintage dressmakers mannequin….so here we are. The roses are assembled petal at a time, each one veined and fluted individually. I then dusted each centre and petal edge with copper lustre dust. It took a week and a half to make the roses alone. I made close to 100…put the whole thing together, rang the photographer to tell him it was ready, then promptly dropped it….now down to 72 roses 🙁 He cleverly some of the broken roses as dropped petals under the cake. It’s now sitting in my hallway and I smile and nod at it every time I walk past…yes I may be just a little crazy haha!
