The Woodland Fairies collaboration was the very latest collaboration to unveil this weekend. This group of talented international artists celebrated the magic and wonder of fairies through their edible creations. Organized by Lindsey Trepany of ZeZeLoves cakes, this beautiful collaboration featured an array of fairies and woodland creatures. We share just a few of our favorites- though it was pretty hard to choose- to see more amazing fairy creations, don’t forget to head on over to their facebook page
Eliana Morales of Chiki created this beautiful woodland inspired cake in her signature style. Eliana says, “My woodland fairy collaboration Cake piece wants to inspire you to dream, to hope, and to “Make a WISH”. The magic of this beauty comes from the group of diverse elements together, like the texture of the moss, the sugar paste wood, pared with Succulents, freesias, fiddle head ferns, ranunculus, mushrooms, and of course, the magic of the fairies.”
This lovely little fairy perched on a log was created by sugar artist Catalina Anghel, “Cornflower fairy” – in charge of giving the beautiful blue color to Cornflower.” explains Catalina, “The cake is actually a chocolate sponge covered with Satin Ice fondant, Satin Ice gumpaste flowers and Fratello edible petal dusts for coloring.”
This cheeky little fellow was created by Rose M. Brown of Shiny Ball Creations. Describing her cake Rose states, “Bob the woodland elf spends his time looking for his favorite fairy wine. You can see from his face that he may have just found some! Bob is sculpted from Choco-pan modeling chocolate and the tree stump was created using Renshaw fondant.”
Showcasing the beauty and delicacy of royal icing Beatriz Muller created a stunning fairy lantern, Beatriz notes, “I created a Nirvana style design, royal icing collars and panels, piped forest on hand-painted wafer paper, filigree and string work. It has a pastillage base and dome, and a bas relief fairy with piped wings.” Simply stunning work.
One of our absolute favorite pieces from the collaboration was “Pumpkin the Troll”. This stunning sculpted cake was created by Dana Dees of Dees’Licious Cake Designs. “Pumpkin is the keeper of all things fall and helps lights the way for other woodland creatures.” notes Dana, “Modeling chocolate was used to sculpt his head, hands and arms and Satin Ice fondant was used to cover the pumpkin bottom and all other features.”
Showcasing her signature style, Joyce Marcellus of Toxic Sweets Shop created this cute baby octopus resting in a bowl of berries. Joyce explains, “A baby octopus rescued by fairies. The bowl and the octopus is made from Fantasia Fondant. The berries are made from deco gel glazed with mirror glaze.”
Tiffany Rosales of the Commonwealth Cake Company created this very romantic and elegant woodland cake. Tiffany notes, “I created a romantic interpretation of woodland fairies using alternating wood textured and edible moss covered tiers. The flowers, berries, and leaves are made using Satin Ice gumpaste. The pale pink illuminated fairy globes are constructed from colored gelatin bubbles.”
