Fashion Inspired Cakes

Seeing these Fall pink dresses… I fell in love!… And when taking the challenge to create a fashion inspired cake I was very inspired by these Dolce & Gabbana Dresses. I love the colors and I love the flowers all over.

I really enjoyed searching for an inspiring dress to recreate into a cake and Liked it so much that I may have to make this a new thing! So stay tuned for future fashion inspired cakes!!

Below I listed how you too can recreate these cakes! I know you can do it!

These are perfect centerpiece cakes for a girls luncheon!

How to Make: 

First you will want to bake an 8inch round cake (either a boxed cake or if you have a favorite recipe). Then you will icing your cake. Leave a thin crumb coat of icing around the outside of the cake to place your fondant on. You can Watch Here how to make my Icing!

What You’ll Need:caketools

All of these Wilton tools can be bought at Michael’s

How To Decorate:

Open your fondant and prepare to dye your fondant Pink (you can also buy colored fondant but if you are trying to get a unique color, buying white fondant and then dying it yourself is best) put about 2-3 fingertip scoops of pink food coloring to your fondant. Knead your fondant mixing the color all over evenly.

Once your desired color is achieved grab your large rolling pin and about a cup of powdered sugar.

Dusk the powdered sugar over your workspace (this will keep the fondant from sticking to the surface) Roll your fondant out so that it is paper thin.

Then grab your wilton ribbon rolling tool (use the straight edge blades) and roll the tool over your fondant (I used the 1 inch spacing tool, included in the tool box). Then you will place each individual strip around the cake. Pinch the top of the strips to create a thin wave once the strips are on the cake.

How To Make:

Bake a round 6inch cake. Icing your cake (look back at our latest Video for how to make my Icing recipe)

Add 1-2 drops of pink food coloring to white icing. Using a 104 wilton teardrop tip create large waves going up the cake to create ruffled look and repeat around whole cake.

Separate your icing into 4 different cups to color your icing for the flowers on top. I made a light pink, light blue, light mint, white and darker pink colors. I then placed each in their own pipping bag. Cut a very small cut off the end of the bag so that the flowers are drawn very thin.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these Fashion inspired cakes and hope you too try these beauties!!
