Fabric Flower Cake

A cake can be inspired by just about anything… an invitation, a flower,  a pattern on a favorite dress.   Today’s cake is the perfect example of how inspiration can strike anywhere.  Created by the talented cake designer, Erica O’Brien, this lovely display was inspired by a pillow.  Yes, a pillow!  Erica took a fabulous flowered pillow by Dwell Studio and created one stunning cake!  Fabric flowers are everywhere, why not on a cake too?  With one look at this cake, I think you’ll agree that beauty can translate into many forms, including cake.
