Wedding Dress Replica Cake

We make a lot of cakes here at Cocoa & Fig. And all of them are special in their own way. But every once in awhile, we are asked to create a cake that really moves us. A few weeks ago, we received an email from a gentleman that wanted us to create an amazing cake for his wedding anniversary. He sent us pictures of his wedding day and talked about how magical his wife had looked in her dress. He wondered if it was possible to create a replica of the dress in cake. We didn't hesitate for a second.... of course we could!

Here is a picture of the lovely Lisa from her wedding day. Notice her beautiful dress which consists of a sage green corset top and flowing white skirt.

Joe began by shaping a body of out rice krispie treats. He then cut and shaped the bodice of the dress from green fondant and hand painted the floral detail.

The strings of the corset were piped in pink royal icing and the bodice was attached to the skirt which covered the dome-shaped cake.

Here is the finished cake as it looked when delivered. We even included the sheer white shawl that was in the original picture.

This final picture was sent to us after the party. I just love this shot with our replica cake seen in front of the original picture. I am so happy we could recreate a piece of this special day for them!
