Fashion meet cake – what’s not to love?!

It all began a year ago, when popular baker and cake artist, Joonie Tan, shared this image on her Instagram page –

A wedding cake inspired by a Sabyasachi anarkali? I loved the idea, considering how gorgeous the cake turned out to be!

An Idea Transcends Borders

A few months down the line, a Pakistan-based restaurant created a “Cake Couture” collection inspired by a powder pink bridal outfit by the famous designer, Faraz Manan.

They did a stellar job of recreating intricate embroidered details onto the 3-tier cake.

Refining The Look

Finally, one of Joonie’s students made a STUNNING wedding cake based off of a lehenga from Sabyasachi’s Udaipur collection.

If my wedding cake can potentially look THIS beautiful, get me on this trending train!

The UrbanClap Weddings Take on the Trend

Taking design elements from a pretty bridal outfit and recreating them on the wedding cake now seems like such a straight-forward why-didn’t-we-think-of-this-earlier idea. Because, obviously, picking elements from a high-end designer’s bridal outfit and putting it on a cake has to look good!

Full credit to Joonie & her students for coming up with this. Outfit-inspired cakes are a trend I’d love to see catch on.

The Options Are Endless

It’s not just limited to your lehengas and anarkalis. If you’re getting into a stunning white wedding gown or a fusion cocktail one, your baker can pick up intricate details from the dress and recreate them on the dessert of your choice! Outfit-inspired cupcakes, anyone?
