Working with Rebecca Stone of Duet Weddings is always a little intimidating. You see, she’s a true designer. I can tell because I always have to google some aspect of whatever concept she pitches.(I can also tell because I’ve seen her house and it’s gorgeous!) This time, she emails and says that she’d like me to create a cake that incorporates a fauxbois pattern (huh?) and guinea feathers (wuh?). “No problem,” I write back, and then promptly hop online to find out what exactly that means and how to execute it.
The cake was for a photoshoot and was recently featured on oncewed.com. I was very excited to work with Jose Villa whose work I really admire (and who, I’m happy to report, loved my cake!).
Here’s the inspiration Rebecca sent over.
And here’s the cake, complete with a fauxbois pattern (that’s wood, by the way) and a fondant guinea feather.
And here are some other photos taken by Jose Villa.
