Our cake of the month is brought to you by Reva Alexander-Hawk of Merci Beaucoup Cakes. Reva’s extraordinary cake was created for the recent Chihuly collaboration. Her beautiful piece showcases the unique beauty of isomalt. Inspired by the work of artist Dale Chihuly, Reva has re-imagined his incredible sugar-glass artistry to create a striking and iridescent cake. Reva shares the inspiration behind her wonderful cake and some insightful progress pictures.
This gorgeous cake was covered with white Satin Ice fondant, and then airbrushed and hand painted using Americolors. The glass creations were created using clear SimiIsomalt which was molded and pulled to mimic the art work of Chihuly, and then also airbrushed to add color and details.
The little spheres were created by marbling different colored fondants together. The entire cake was then sprayed with Dinky Doodles Shine Spray to create a glassy look!
All Isomalt pieces were screamed with Clear Simi Isomalt nibs and then airbrushed to created the multi layer colors in each piece.
