When I made this wedding cake, I was inspired by the brides dress.  It was gorgeous, with this huge rosette at the empire style waist and the waist band itself was covered in jewels.  I mimicked the beading and stones in sugar paste on the separators and gave the cake a lot of height… something very important to the bride.   We we’re both thrilled when the rosette cake was featured in Brides Magazine, and its been a huge hit since.

I adore sparkle of all kinds but I had no idea at the time how popular the style would prove to be.  I’m all for inspiration, but not too crazy about copying my previous work.  I like a challenge and to create something at least a little new with each custom cake creation. Since then, there have been many incarnations of the base styles for all kinds of occasions and it all started from that original sparkling wedding cake.

Just goes to prove how infinite the possibilities are.  How would you change it to make it unique to you?
