Wedding Night ~ Pink
Exhibited at the recent Vintage Wedding Show at Brighton’s Corn Exchange. The colour is reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe’s pink dress in the film ‘Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend’ which propels my ever popular ‘Wedding Night’ cake desig nback into the 1950′s.
Note: The actual colour of the cake is a stronger pink then shown.
I couldn’t wait to exhibit this piece at the Vintage Wedding Show at Brighton’s Corn Exchange. Based on the style of Rennie Macintosh, this black and ivory cake oozes 1930′s with it’s unique cube design, the distinct Macintosh rose design and the royal icing emphasising it’s crisp straight lines.
A Vintage Wedding show would not be complete without a cake styled on 1950′s luggage. I have used a pale yellow pearlised colour to compliment the gold. This piece is made up of three cakes; a rectangular suitcase, striped hatbox complete with sugar rope handle and small vanity case. Look closely and you will also see some miniature sugar butterflies dotted around the cake.
The 1960′s was represented at The Vintage Wedding Show at Brighton’s Corn Exchange with this neat 3 tier oval shaped wedding cake. With bold colours and flowers based on the Mary Quant daisy, each tier is slightly offset to emphasise a platform for the swirls, circles and flowers.
The black and white tiled floor, aspidistra planter and on a column and the grand piano is typical of the 1930′s. This design complimented the Vintage Wedding Show at Brighton’s Corn Exchange and proved to be one of the most popular pieces.
Much Ado About Chintz
This design continues to receive high praise wherever it is exhibited. Who would have thought my grandmother’s curtains would rise up so high in popularity! But with the vintage revival in full swing, I was very excited to use the chintz style for one of my cake designs. Hand piped chintzy roses on the drape and the flowers are handcrafted from sugar.
