Dreamy Vintage Drapery Inspired Wedding Cake

I decided to do a drapery study to see how the color, shape, and texture of fabric could bring drama to a beautiful cake. I was inspired by the abundant and dreamy vintage drapery of fabrics in the Renaissance period. The intricate patterns often seen on luxurious gowns are fascinating. I modernized a classic high-end design with plain white tiers in between the details. The handpainted patterns on the fondant give it an even more unique touch.

The stunning artisan sugar broaches that adorned the center of the draped tiers also brought to life the opulence of the time period by which I was inspired. This gave a more organized look. It also added another element of elegance to a classically romantic design made contemporary.

This photo by Elena Foresto pulls dramatic focus onto the cake. The composition allows the details to truly shine through. The juxtaposition against a dark green grassy background emphasizes the drama of the glamorous cake even more.
