Fashion and.. cake?

Recently, we received sort of a bizarre request – to craft fake cake “hats” for a L’Etoile Magazine fashion photo shoot. Given my recent spate of nostalgia for my fashion industry days, I jumped at the chance to participate.

3 Cakers – myself, Sheela from Cake Eater Bakery, and Thea from Perfect Day Cakes were each given photos of 2 dresses to work with, and very little in the way of guidelines , restrictions, or TIME (lol!), and set free to run wild with our imaginations.

Here are the two photos I was initially provided with:

The blue dress is from Blasphemina’s Closet. For this dress, L’Etoile requested something crazy, bright, and mad-hatterish, as they wanted to play up the “Alice in Wonderland” feel of it. The grey/orange dress is from Calpurnia Peach. Here’s what we came up with:

And here are the final shots from the fashion shoot:

So yeah, that was an interesting experience. I really liked the way that the grey and orange cake went so well with the Calpurnia Peach dress… but, if I had my time back, I think I would have pushed to do the other one blue and black, to better coordinate with the assigned dress.

Cool though.
