Mess with the Dress

A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I would be interested in making a cake for the First Friday Art event in Woodland, specifically for the Woodland Camera Forum's exhibit at Gallery 625.  I have made a cake for them before, but to me this is different, my first art exhibit!  The theme of this exhibit is "Mess with the Dress" where photographers "mess with," alter, or destroy wedding dresses and photograph them in unusual locations. For more on this event, check out this article in Woodland's Daily Democrat.

I have to admit, as excited as I was about making a cake for the exhibit, I almost did  not do it. On the Thursday before the opening of the exhibit, I still was not feeling inspired and my original idea just was not coming together. I needed something wedding dress inspired, but that went with the theme. Then, while doing something totally unrelated, inspiration struck! I had my design!

I am really pleased with how this cake came out.  I especially love the red veil, which was my inspiration.  Sadly, I will not be attending the event, since I have classes to teach, but I hope they appreciated the cake art I created for their event!
