You might want to sit down for today’s post. That way you can literally jump for joy when you see what we have in store for you. We’ve been looking forward to today’s tutorial for months now. Ever since the talented Jenna Rae Illchuk of Jenna Rae Cakes wowed us with her Silver Sequin Cake as part of our 12 Cakes of Christmas series. We loved her sequin cake to pieces — and you did too! Sequin cakes are everywhere and definitely one of the hottest new techniques going, thanks to originator of this fabulous trend, Lori Hutchison of The Caketress. After we featured Jenna Rae’s cake last December, the emails and comments started rolling in with requests for a tutorial. Well, we heard your cry and asked the lovely Jenna Rae if she would be so kind as to teach us. And needless to say, we were beyond thrilled when she agreed to show us her techniques. Yes, you read that right! We’re learning how to make a fabulous sequin cake today, in gold!!
For months, I’ve been dying to tell you this was coming! The anticipation built as Jenna Rae had some other little things on her plate — you know, like opening her very first storefront in Winnipeg, Canada! So today we’re celebrating a glorious new tutorial AND the launch of Jenna Rae’s new bakery. And I have no doubt you’ll want to join in the celebration because this may just be the most beautiful tutorial we’ve ever posted. The stunning sequin cake, gleaming in gold luster, is breathtaking. The technique is so incredibly genius you’ll never believe it’s that simple. Add in the impeccable styling of Ashley Nicole (who just happens to be Jenna Rae’s twin sister and business partner) and dreamy images by Brittany Mahood Photography — and you have one spectacular cake tutorial!
I know you’re about to burst right now… so let’s do this! Just click on the link below to open the full step-by-step tutorial. Enjoy!
