Shifting Focus: "Cake Power Kids" grows up


Wonderland Cake: photographs by Lisa A. of George Street Photo & Video
Whoo-hoo! I've decided it's time to expand the scope of The Cake Power Kids blog into the All Things Cake Power blog!   Now, instead of posting ideas and recipes exclusively for children's cakes and how to projects I'll be doing lots of behind-the-scenes, inspirations and photos of cakes posts of all of our weddings and special celebrations.  (Don't get me wrong, kid stuff will always be where my heart is and I'll continue to do lots of step-by-step decorating with kids projects.) To kick this off, lets start with one of my very favorite wedding cakes of last year.  The bride provided the inspiration for this cake from an amazing body of photography called Wonderland by photographer, Kirsty Mitchell. When I received the inspiration images to work from I nearly fell off my chair.  I couldn't get over the beautiful conceptual imagery! Just scroll down to see what I mean:






A Floral Birth: Kirsty imagines a creature begotten from nature.  The sketch and overall feel of the cake comes directly form this image.
The original sketch. 
Kirsty Mitchell's Danaus: A close-up of a model before a sunlit backdrop, peering through a veil of paper butterflies.  On the cake the butterflies are made of rice paper painted with petal dust.


Thank you, Lauren & Dan for such amazing inspiration!  Thank you also to Lisa A. of George Street Photo & Video for such gorgeous photos of the cake and event!
