Fleeting by Sliceofcake Fleeting by Sliceofcake
The second cake designed for local magazine Female Brides.

The theme for this shoot was:
All White - elegant, sophisticated cakes that are all white, but featuring different shades of white/cream/ivory. Each cake needs to have each own pattern/styling, and can be matched with white flowers or other white accessories.

This cake was actually designed and built by my manageress (with some tutoring and assistance from me of course). Awhile back I had mentioned to her that anyone could learn how to decorate a cake if they were taught the proper skills and had an interest in it.

"Even me?" She asked.
"If you want... sure, but you'll have to cut your fingernails first. You're gonna leave nail marks everywhere with those..." I said.
"They're already short! My Manicurist is on vacation..."

A week later we have this fine piece of work. Considering this is her first time and she is far from anyone's imagination of what a pastry chef is like (think makeup, manicured nails, designer clothes and high heels), I think you will all agree that she did a fantastic job!

Oh well, she did have a good teacher... *wink*

There are a lot of elements in this cake! Its strikingly beautiful, the attention to every single tiny detail, it looks picture perfect. It shows your obvious skill and dedication to your craft. Every butterfly looks amazing, the wings, the soft pink hue on them - just enough color to keep the cake from being plain. The rhinestones(?) add a different level of sophistication and luxury to the cake, I'd also like to point out the traditional methodology of the cake with its radical originality. The first two layers of rounded cake are very traditional for cakes; as you move up to the second two tiers they're elevated purposefully on each side giving it a more modern edge. The filigree pattern along the cake gives it a wonderful elegant touch.

Overall VERY beautiful. Be proud!

All of your cakes are so beautiful. :)

How did you start into this career? Did you have certain schooling, or did you apprentice?

Looks gorgeous. Great teaching job :D

I dunno, I'd be suspicious about the nail cutting part too, they're too useful for wirework!

lol, i don't think she'd use her nails for wirework considering how much she spends on manicures

Oh wow, that is really cool. I am so glad to see stuff like this. Now when I have a wedding I don't want a boring normal cake!

The design is amazing. I love all those butterflies and swirls. Even if she doesn't make the cakes for a living she should design them!

I don't usually comment, but after reading the Artist's Comment, I have to put my 2 cents in. Your manageress did a wonderful job. Every bride's gotta have some diamonds somewhere, even on cake, haha!

The light color on the butterflies are a good accent to the cake, and the diamond borders make the cake... blingy. XD I was expecting pearls and ribbons as the borders (You see it everywhere in wedding cakes), but this definitely caught my eye; it's different. Overall, it's a great cake for a bride who likes the not-too-simple look.

You both must be so proud. :3

I know what you mean about the nails. I always liked them long / grow them out but they do become a bother when they end up denting or scratching smooth surfaces. And they're not great when kneading dough either, hehe so I've accepted the fact they have to be cut short.

She has done a wonderful job and she did have a great teacher n_n
