Funfair Wedding Cake – Candystripe

Funfair themed wedding cake Candy stripe, funfair, pale pink, baby blue, ruffles; it a description of cute, distilled. I was so excited to start on this fairground wedding cake project. My original sketch was actually slightly different, it featured a marshmallow style heart and ruffled swags. The ruffles sort of got transferred to the cake board which, I warn you in advance, took a long time.

I did actually make it and attached it but it didn’t look right so I opted for a fabric, ruffle type flower and the addition of stars.Ombre ruffle cake board

The ‘Roll Up’ was hand-cut and stuck to the plaque which was then embellished with extruded lengths of sugarpaste to give it the look of a mirror, or frame.
