So. Clearly. This is a display cake. I thought I’d go ahead and just out that gorilla in the room right up front.
But seriously…even surrounded by perfume bottles, and with a backdrop that is obviously retail in nature…how in the world could I refuse? Can’t you just SEE Grace Kelly striding up for a slice in a twin set, pencil skirt, and pearls?
Okay, it’s just me.
If you know anything about this girl, you know that I am madly in love with anything classic, and just about all things preppy. This cakes is all of the above. Alternating layers of plain, buttercream-frosted cake, with a motif of dotted Swiss in black and pink on alternating layers. Each layer is wrapped up pretty-as-you-please with corresponding satin ribbon, culminating with a perfect black bow topper. I just want to grab my Kelly bag, tie a scarf around my hair, tuck my arm into Troy Donahue’s, and GO! What about you? Does cake inspire you to old Hollywood movie fantasies, like me?
