Ballerina Inspired Sweets

What little girl doesn’t love to dance?  And as big girls, we all look back fondly on our first dance class… the tutus, the tights, our hair swept back into a neat little bun.  Maybe it’s because of the movie Black Swan.  Maybe it’s because dancers are the ultimate image of elegance and grace.  But girls of all ages are enamored with ballerinas and we see this theme spreading into events everywhere.  From bridal fashion to birthday parties, ballet inspires.  So today we’re oohing and awing over some lovely ballerina inspired sweets.

I am completely mesmerized by this cake!   This feminine and romantic design was created by Rachael of Intricate Icings and it could not be more lovely.  The whole scene is dreamy with its ribbon backdrop, candles and soft sunshine.  Love it!  You can see the full wedding photo shoot HERE on Style Me Pretty.

    My little girl had her first ballet recital this week and I couldn’t have been more excited. We had a small party afterwards and it was sooo fun to decorate such a girly, beautiful, ballet-pink cake. Check out my blog if you’re interested.
