Styled Shoot | Shine Bright

It's certainly been a little quiet on the cake front hasn't it! With a couple of months galavanting overseas and then throw in Christmas and New Year for good measure, there hasn't been much time for me to bake, let alone blog about it. To celebrate 2017 is spectacular fashion, I thought it was time to show of this shimmering beauty from a styled shoot with MJK Creative and Autumn Kisses Floral Design from last year.

This cake was inspired by Hey there, Cupcake!, but it didn’t quite go to plan. After trying and trying to punch the pattern on the bottom tier from wafer paper covered in silver leaf, with little success and increasing frustration, I eventually decided to cover the tier itself in the silver leaf and then cover wrap with delicate white wafer paper - and I’m so happy how it turned out. 

I love the little hints of reflection through the basket-weave pattern and if you look closely, you might even catch a glimpse of MJK Creative working her photography magic. 

The simply but stunning deep pink roses are just the perfect finishing touch - don’t you think?
