CAKES AND FABS

Sweets, cakes and cream- this widely accepted symbol of celebration is more than just a desert for the menu. Cakes are now trusted allies of the fashion designer and the designer a delicate muse for the flour artist. As a lover of words and its artistic abilities, the search for a muse  is of great important to an artist be it the one with a brush or a pair of scissors, a bowl of butter, a pile of bricks, a base guitar  or even a roll of hair extension; the muse rolls a clarion whisper in the finished product.
Of course, seed must be planted in good soil, 'Art does't spring from the muses alone, but from hard work(of the artist)...Tom Rachman'
Naked or frosted, cakes are a  beautiful sweetness that can provoke more than sugar urge. Its fusion with fashion design only buttress that fact that fashion designing is like a fishing net, searching for new inspirations in the vast ocean of art. But then, art looks to art and the unexpected to breed a new dimension of itself. 
Ruffles, flowers, pearls, ribbons, the flexibility in cake creation make dresses a magnetic and unsurprising muse. Cakes can project just as much attitude as a dress can, its complexity and simplicity.


Vogue set up five pastry chefs in New York to present creations inspired by desert-like dresses(cake creations by Empire cakes and little cupcake bakeshop)

 The mystical beauty in cakes is in the way they can build an imitation that resounds the solidity of the object of its inspiration. Cakes with lace textures resonates class and royal femininity. You can taste the delicacy of the event as in a wedding or bridal shower as well as have exquisite elegance personified .




Vera Wang inspired cakes were created after her 2013 collection. The dresses were embellished with satin, ruffles, ribbons, artistically cut flowers and well placed layering. Her dress art transcended into the cakes created by Vanilla cake shop and other cake artist.
