Chanel 2015 Runway Inspired Cake and Croissant

When creating a fashion design dessert collection around runway inspired looks, one can not avoid Chanel as inspiration. I’m always inspired by new colour palettes and textures from Chanel that are both whimsical and classic, sexy and girly. For this look I chose a gorgeously detailed floral beaded dress for inspiration for the Cake and croissant. In sugar, I had to hand make hundreds of matching beads and tiny flowers to create this look and for a pairing dessert I had fun with making a couture croissant with cigarettes. (the cliche classic  french breakfast).

I’m posting daily new looks for the collection on my Instagram

Marchesa inspired Cake and Dessert

I’ll admit it’s been years since I’ve wrote a blog post a it can be hard to find time between flights and work. However I’m thrilled to share a new collection of cakes I designed inspired by 2015 runway collections. The first design started the idea for the collection. When I saw this Marchesa (Spring/Summer Couture 2015)  feather fleur gown, I was in love and designed this four tier pastel feathered cake and matching lemon tart. (For some reason I dreamed of eating a lemon tart in that gown. ) I’ll be posting daily the new collection on my Instagram .
