Describe the cake, details and techniques:    

For this 4 tier cake I really wanted to create some movement that would draw your eyes upward. I get a general idea of what I am going to do but it really comes alive when I’m working on it. The technique is actually quite simple, but time consuming. Several different colors of Satin Ice fondant are rolled out and then cut into varying strips. Some of the strips of fondant are roughed up or torn to create even more interest. Each strip is adhered with edible glue, starting from the bottom and working its way to the top. This is when the shape starts to take place.

What is the inspiration for this winning cake?  

The inspiration came from a local metalsmith jewelry designer who creates custom crowns which are inspired from shapes, architecture and nature

How much time did you spend creating this cake?

Approximately 3 days from start to finish.

What do you do while you work?  

While I’m working, I must listen to music! So much inspiration can come from the music that’s playing
