Party Dress Cake by pinkcakebox Party Dress Cake by pinkcakebox
We created this aprty dress cake for a cake contest sponsored by the Somerset Art Association. The “Let Them Eat Cake” contest’s theme was the celebration of spring. We created the “Bloom of the Ball” which was a nature inspired party dress adorned with sugar roses, vines, and leaves hanging on a dress form.

The cake was a sour cream orange zest cake filled with pistachio and white chocolate buttercream. It was a really great experience creating this 46″ tall cake, although its transportation to Bedminister Fiddler Elbow’s country club was a little daunting…not to mention our air brush machine overheated and blew out every fuse in our store the night before! This forced us to hand paint the cake…but it all worked out in the end.

It's a cake, it's a dress, it's art, it's just absolutely amazing, it's edible but it would be a crime to eat Party Dress Cake by ~pinkcakebox! ( Suggested by elegaer and Featured by Myana )

Have you ever considered making an orange taffeta dress out of oranges and taffy?

beautiful! I wouldn't even want to eat from something so beautiful like this ;w;
I used to work in buttercream years ago, stringwork and all, and my husband does sculpted cakes for fun, so when I say this is amazing, it is truly amazing. Nice work, and I think the handpainting made it better.
