Dark Wedding – Gothic Wedding Cake Tutorial
It's that spooky time of the year again!!! And this time, I decided to go in a different way... Gothic.
So I present to you my recent tutorial, "Dark Wedding", a Gothic Wedding Cake.
Everytime we see Halloween themed cakes, is all spooky, bloody, or super childish with happy and cute pumpkins and ghosts. Nothing against (I love bloody things...) but I decided this year to explore another side of Halloween, since weddings in this time of the year are getting more popular and the gothic theme looked a good thing to be explored.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use lace to make a ruffle drapped effect, imprint on sugar paste with dust colours, how to make sugar Honeycomb Dhalia and fantasy Myosotis (Forget-me-not), and many other things.
Here is what you'll need:
12’’ round black base
