Describe the cake, details and techniques:
For this cake, I started with green Satin Ice fondant. When the cake was fully covered, I used molding tools and started getting some starry details. I then used little ballon lights, cut out open the fondant and embedded the lights into the cake. From there, I watered down some fondant and used it as if it was clay and created more 3D texture. Then I airbrushed the whole cake with shades of blues, blacks, teals and metallics. Lastly, I used edible glitter over the lights so it reflected the glitter.
What is the inspiration for this winning cake?
- This was a real wedding cake, and the couple - Courtney & Kat, love constellations. I had already made a light up constellation cake that they loved, so they wanted something similar to that. I had them choose a starry night painting that I used for color inspiration.
- The inside of the cake was rainbow. The girls wanted another fun surprise when they cut open the cake. Also, as members of the LGBTQ community - it was a big deal for them that they were getting hitched!
How much time did you spend creating this cake?
It’s really hard to say, I was working on a few other wedding cakes at this time. But maybe 10 hours in total, from start to finish.
What do you do while you work?
At Autumn Nomad, we listen to a lot of music. Especially when decorating cakes! I’m typically dancing and decorating. We frequent 90’s pop and Disney a lot. But my favorites are Phish and Tedeski Trucks Band. But on this week, everyone was probably listening to NSync - ha!
