Sometimes, when I'm looking for inspiration, especially for my dummy or show cakes, I turn towards treasures like these. Some time ago, I bought some silicone molding compound and used her earrings and brooch to make molds so that I could use them on a Styrofoam showcake.
At the last bridal show I had a bride that just went bonkers over that "fish" cake. She loved everything about it. We booked a consultation, went through the whole design process and in the end she still wanted that as her wedding cake. Professionally I took it as a real compliment that she liked it just the way it was. I love it when I can have that type of connection with a client.
