Basic instructions and ideas for creating a cake to match a fabric or lace swatch.
Stacked cake with decorated with Italian buttercream.
Cake sides are replicated from the lace design of the bride's dress, a special request from the bride.
Working from the fabric swatch and using a small tip for the Italian buttercream, the design was drawn onto the sides of the cake. Since the pattern was interwoven, the outer borders of the design were used as a guideline and became the top of the design of the cake sides. Silver dragées are hand applied at the same places as the silver beads on the design of the fabric swatch.
