Nine fashion designers, eight cake creators, and thousands of admiring eyes all weekend long – our inaugural Icing on the Cake exhibition at New Zealand Fashion Weekend was an intoxicating feast for all the senses.
Each fashion designer collaborated with a cake designer to form a creation that reflected their essence and individuality, all while showcasing the cake designer’s spectacular abilities. Over the weekend, members of the public cast votes for their favourite creation.
This cake was inspired by Trelise Cooper’s ‘tickled pink’ dress. Over 2000 fondant beads were hand cut to represent the intricate beading on the bodice, while five handmade sugar peonies reflected the ballerina feel of the dress. In total the cake took 33 hours to create.
