And the winner is...

The winner of our 2013 Icing on the Cake Exhibition for 2013

  • Story by Photo Shoot Studios

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.

The winning cake? Strawberry Sky Cake's collaboration with fashion powerhouse Trelise Cooper – well and truly a match made in wedding-cake heaven.

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.

See our Spring issue (out October 7) for more blow-you-away inspiration from the Icing on the Cake exhibition.
