Go behind the scenes with this gorgeous golden wheat cake

Posted By Erin Furey On January 2, 2014 @ 10:59 am In Behind The Scenes | No Comments

The golden wheat cake [1] in the Winter 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings [2] is my personal favorite.  The design is based on a gold leaf painting by Jeffrey Hatfield [3].  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!
