From Ruffled Dress To Cake

For more than a year now, we’ve been swooning over cake designs inspired by glamorous gowns.  We all have come to know and love the ‘from dress to cake‘ concept.  And the talented Rachael Teufel, owner of Intricate Icings Cake Design, has been leading the way in our pursuit of fashion inspired cakes.  We’ve cheered as Rachael found inspiration in dresses of all styles and transformed them into stunning cake designs (like THIS one, and THIS one.  Oh and THIS one).  Which makes today’s feature even sweeter.  We’re taking a look at one of Rachael’s newest designs and hooking you up with details for her new online Craftsy Class!  Plus a special discount offer!  First, let’s gush over this extraordinary Ruffled Dress Cake.  It’s time to go from dress to cake!

Oh my goodness, talk about spectacular!  Layers upon layers of overlapping ruffles, in cascading diagonals across the cake.  With a tulle inspired V and incredible sequins paired with a gorgeous bow.  Let’s see more of this fabulous cake…

Rachael of Intricate Icings gives us the scoop on her dress inspired design:

“A satin bow, lots of ruffles, and rows of sequins… sounds like the components of a stunning bridal gown to most, but to me it sounds like the makings of an unbelievable wedding cake.  All created out of sugar, this wedding cake is a direct design translation from gown to cake.  There are overlapping layers of textured modeling chocolate, some to mimic satin and some tulle.  Rows of sparkly gumpaste sequins highlight the tulle layers that form a  V shape in the front, just like the gown.  Finally, a satin bow is tied with streamers flowing down the side.”
