Marie Antoinette Cake

Let them eat cake!  But not just any cake.  A cake as stunning as…. my dress!  Today’s lovely design by Tessa of The Frosted Cake Shop was inspired by Marie Antoinette and the elaborate dresses of the 18th century.  With vintage metallics and delicate touches, today’s feature is ultra feminine and romantic.  Flirty ruffles join gold buttons and bows to create an intricate display with just the right amount of glam.  Stripes, patterns and billowing create a variety of textures and pretties to enjoy!  Five tiers of gorgeous french blue and gold that would have Marie herself demanding a piece of this cake.  Join me in swooning over this modern Marie Antoinette Cake!

Tessa from The Frosted Cake Shop shares some thoughts about her design:

“The cake design has a modern Marie Antoinette theme. With its french blue color palette with regal gold touches, it is crisp and elegant without being too over-the-top. I love the influence of fashion in my designs, and carried out a variety of textures to include the tufts, buttons, ruffles, and bows of 18th century dresses.”
