The golden wheat cake in the Winter 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is my personal favorite. The design is based on a gold leaf painting by Jeffrey Hatfield. He graciously worked with us to develop a cake from his wheat design and re-created his painting for our shoot with a vinyl stencil and spray paint. We painted chocolate fondant with a solution of vodka and gold luster dust to edibly interpret his art Using real wheat painted gold we attempted a few cake topper designs before settling on the final. Enjoy these behind the scenes photos!
And the result? Gorgeous.
