Fashion Cakes: Pretty Peplum

Posted by

Apollina Spoto is an attorney in Washington, D.C. and a novice baker. She interprets designer dresses into cakes for her blog Apollinas, and we asked her to whip up unique confections for us.

The peplum has become one of the season’s most popular silhouettes. It’s flirty, feminine, a bit romantic and a great way to accentuate your waist while playing up your curves. Every time I see Jason Wu’s pink and white peplum dress, I think how lovely it would look on a string of bridesmaids lined up for a garden wedding ceremony. I’m getting married in June and since peplum dresses won’t quite fit my beachy wedding theme, I made a peplum cake instead—so I can have my Jason Wu and eat it too.

The cake I made is strawberry and vanilla with vanilla buttercream, complete with a fondant houndstooth-patterned top, peplum waist, and a skinny bow belt. She’s quite a sassy little number. I think she’d be perfectly dressed for a bridal shower, too. Come to think of it, maybe I should have waited to make this cake for my upcoming shower! I guess I’ll just have to recreate some other fantastic wedding item that I desperately want to sink my teeth into…

    I love the cake, one of my favorites that Apollina has created. The houndstooth detail up top was special, and the skirt is so perfect for this!
