Over the weekend I made a wedding dress cake topper made out of 50/50 blend of gumpaste and fondant. I had a lot of fun making this cake topper. This dress has a lot of details in it that took a while to make, but I love the final outcome. It's the little details that count and I will be making more dress toppers soon.
The foundation for the dress are two pieces. The torso of a woman mold and a styrofoam bell bottom are all that is needed. This is what makes the wedding dress topper solid.
I'm going to start with the front of the wedding dress cake topper and take you around it. The neckline is a sweetheart neckline that is classic and fashionable. I also put a few ribbon roses in the center of the swags. This gives the dress an even more romantic and feminine feel.
The swags go from both sides all the way to the back. I put every swag on the dress individually, just as a fashion designer would when putting a dress together. This gives the dress movement and dimension.
The back of the dress has even more detail. I put pearl dragees as the buttons on the dress. The swags were individually put around the train to flow around it. The train is individual silicon molds that I layered on top of each other. I love the look of lace and this mold provided that look. I love how the train looks like it is sweeping the floor. This also provides the look of movement.
This wedding dress cake topper will look great on any wedding or bridal shower cake. Variations of this dress will also look great on a little girls cake for a princess themed birthday party. I hope that you have all enjoyed this post and that you are having a blessed week.
