    My daughter is planning to get married sometime in the next couple of years, so there are what seems like hundreds of wedding magazines laying around my house. This picture is from the latest Martha Steward Weddings magazine. They did an article on quilted wedding cakes, and this one was my favorite. I'll never talk her into it, though!

    Is it a quilt that looks like a cake or a cake that looks like a quilt?

    Agree. Pretty picture, but I'd gag eating all that fondant. Give me butter cream or give me death! (that's how the quote goes, right?)

    Cake that looks like a quilt. If you read the text (if you can), it says that traditional designs are stamped onto fondant to make it look like a quilt. I was wondering the same thing when I first saw it!

    And wouldn't this look good in a wedding where the bride and bridesmaids dresses were made like quilt tops? You know....like in the magazine ads.

    Almost makes me want my GD to start looking around for a nice man. That would give me time enough to.....oh, heck, to be honest with myself I'd finish it about the time her future kids went to kindergarten!!!

    That's beautiful and so unique. Keep leaving the picture where she can see it and maybe it will grow on her. LOL

    You could do the embroidery work and quiltwork and make it into a wallhanging...a wedding cake to last a lifetime. (Don't forget their names and date.)

    LucyInTheSky - I too favor butter cream (lol). But, I am not sure that you could reach this type of effect with butter cream.

    I love the detail, the appearance and the simplicity of the cake.

    Cake decorating is my other hobby besides quilting. I too love that cake, and all cakes that have such a simple elegance. The technique they are using is relatively easy I have a quilting tool and have done it a few time, but you need to roll the fondant out on the thick side to make sure you do not puncture through to the crumb coat. I always tell people that donít like fondant to just peal it off because I always put a good layer of buttercream underneath. That way you can have you cake and eat it too. I including photos of the last few cakes I did this month. First was my daughterís confirmation party. The other a friendís childís first birthday. The last my sonís birthday. Hope you like!
