Inspiration to cake is a new series of posts where I share some of the imagery and ideas that inspired the final cake design.
Today I am starting with my Urban Luxe design as it has been so popular this year already.
This cake was designed for my new website and so I had the luxury of finding ideas without the constraints of an existing wedding theme.
I just knew that I wanted something a bit edgy, that combined my love of painting and geometrics.
The gorgeous Bottega Veneta dress was my jumping off point. For the geometrics I wanted something that was less symmetrical than you would expect, a bit like the section in this Taigan fabric but with a bit of an art deco feel.
I barely used any special tools on this one. Strips of gumpaste, paintbrushes, food colours, and a roller stitching tool was about it! I love it when cake designs basically use what you have to hand in a ‘normal’ kitchen.
