I'm so excited about this cake! I have been wanting to make this design... It is for my cousin who is getting married on new year's eve. I have the honor of making my first wedding cake for Jaclynn's wedding!!!! I'm very excited and a little nervous but I have faith I can pull it off. This cake design was inspired by those on cake central. I used layers of fondant to make the dress. The roses are also fondant. I sprayed the dress with a irridescent food grade spray to give it a special shine. The cake was a hit!
Here is the cake with the crumb coat
Added the final layer of buttercream
Used a cut out template of the dress top and started to add layers of fondant. I didn't really follow a pattern, I would cut strips, lay them on the cake and then cut the ends off...
