Laduree mini wedding cake

Here is what I have been up to the last days. It took me several days to make this little replica of the Laduree weeding cake. I will not be making many of these!! Hopefully I can figure out how to make a mold for the little couple as this is difficult to make because it is so tiny and has lots of details. For now this will have to go into my own dollhouse.

                                                                        Hope you like it:)

                     The box was bought at Laduree and inside there is lovely rose tea.

Wow Crystal, what a beautiful cake, a perfect job. I love being reminded of my trip to Paris and Laduree. Jain xx

Christel Jensen said...

Asencion: I did use Fimo. White and translucent. Also on the couple I sort of "glazed" it with liquid Fimo and white pigments for the final bake:)

Snowfern said...

oh it's GORGEOUS! might i suggest you simply make a mold of it with 2 part silicone putty, then gingerly cut the mold down one side in half, then when you make replicas you can score off the 'flash' (mold marks?) before you bake them. it will be difficult to capture all that wonderful teeny tiny detail though.....:(

Hi Christel,

Your weddig cake is just AMAZING!
Of corse you keep it for your self...this is a little treasure to keep!

About the MA movie....the story is so so, but the inspiration it gives is WOW...I love it and just like you I watch the movie with diffrent eyes and on the computer so I can stop it every time I wand to see details! So, it came that in the scene were she is fitting al kind of different shoes...there are some all-stars sport shoes hidden...go and look for it. it is so funny...I think it is a joke from the film maker!
