Fall Wedding Cake
This cake is inspired by Queen Marie-Antoinette. The ivory and gold makes it a romantic cake and the Lambeth Method used on this cake brings the Royal opulence that Marie-Antoinette liked so much. The bottom tier is ornate by gumpaste roses and stephanotis.
Going up one tier, there is a special gumpaste medallion that has some story to tell. The original medallion was on a silver tray that was given to my parents when they got married. I made a mold out of the medallion and from there made 4 gumpaste medallions that I antiqued and applied around the big round tier.
On the tapered tier you can see some piping that is directly inspired by one of Marie-Antoinette's necklace. On the tier above that one I piped some decoration underneath to bring beauty and elegance all around and under the cake. You can see a little bit showing on the picture.
The gold on the cake has been painted with 24K gold dusting powder. Overall, I spent about 500 hours on that cake and don't regret a second as I learned so much and grew as a cake decorator. Thank you to competitions for giving us that opportunity to develop!
