At the Cake International competition at Alexandra Palace in London, several bakers and cake makers showcase their skills in making the most grand and beautiful cakes. But in this year’s edition, one clear winner would have to be the “Wedding Gowns Through the Ages” cake, which is a cake designed to look like a life size wedding gown. THe cake was made by famous cake maker Emma Jayne Cake Design.
The cake was based on a real dress designed by Mak Tumang. The dress is a streamlined couture wedding dress that has a gray and pink organza ball gown and floral appliqués in the bodice and skirt. According to the bakers, the dress had looked good enough to eat, so it was one of the clear choices for a cake design. The cake has gotten so much attention, mostly because of how much the cake looks like the actual dress.
According to cake artist Emma Jayne, she had to use an innovative tool to recreate all the finer details of the grand wedding cake. The tool that she used is called the dragéekíss cake-decorating tool. Aside from the grand wedding cake, the Cake International also features several beautiful cakes from the world’s best cake designers. It is the world’s largest cake competition and it is open for anyone to enter. The completion is also known to launch the careers of many world famous cake makers. According to its website: “If you love cake decorating and cake art, then join us and take part in a competition that celebrates the ever-evolving skills and creativity of cake decorators across the globe!”
