I see the world in cake. I can’t help it! Everywhere I look I see fabric prints, magazine covers, china patterns, chandeliers, gift wrap, pillows, purses, greeting cards, labels, and logos all begging to be translated into cake. When I saw this photo in the Lowes Creative Ideas newsletter, I knew it had to be my next cake design. (The fact that there’s a slice of cake pictured is strictly coincidental. I swear.)
I really liked the idea of round objects in different shades of berry, and immediately thought of fabric flowers. I’ve been collecting random images for inspiration for years now and thought this one would work well:
See how this one has tiny words in the center? I imagine it on a wedding cake with words like love, honor, and dream. I hope to incorporate it into the design.
Below, the pencil sketch of the cake I plan to make using all of these elements as well as the paint chips I picked up for color swatches.
The design process is something that really interests me. This is the first post in a series (if two counts as a series) that will document my design process from start to finish. Check back soon (but not that soon) for Part II.
