Fashion Cakes: Pretty Peplum

Posted By guestblogger On April 25, 2012 @ 4:10 pm In Cakes & Confections | 12 Comments

Apollina Spoto [1] is an attorney in Washington, D.C. and a novice baker. She interprets designer dresses into cakes for her blog Apollinas [1], 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 [2], 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…
