When Annie emailed me asking to incorporate her daughter's love of fashion design and some of her original sketches into a sweet sixteenth cake - I got REALLY excited!!
Getting to combine my love of art, cake and Project Runway has got to be the best part of the job.
Annie sent over some of her daughter, Samantha's, designs - I was BLOWN away!!
I knew right away that this cake needed to scream "Fashion!!" and "Samantha!!"
I watch an excessive amount of Project Runway and had the perfect plan!!
This was my favourite design by the birthday girl, and I decided to model the cake design after it!
Presenting (the very talented) Samantha's Sweet Sixteen Fashion Cake!!
|From the sketches I was provided, I recreated them with edible paint onto thin pieces of fondant.|
Then, I let them harden to turn into paper dolls!
|All of the outfits were designed by the birthday girl herself!|
|I would wear any of these! Anyday!|
This next sketch was another one of my favourites:
And here is the recreated fondant version!
I used a combination of black food colouring gel and water to achieve this look - and you can eat it too :)
The Banner was meant to look like a clothing label stitched on!
BIG thanks to Annie and also to Samantha for having such incredible design sketches for me to use as inspiration for this cake!
I hope you had the sweetest sixteenth birthday ever, and I see an amazing future for you in the world of fashion design!!
