Wednesday Inspiration: JLo Inspired Wedding Cake Design

On Monday I posted a picture of JLo's Birthday cake, created by Sylvia Weinstock.

As I'd mentioned I was (literally) drawing inspiration from her cake for a wedding cake that I was designing for one of my January brides.

Though I studied drawing techniques when I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, I've always been super shy about sharing my sketches. I guess I just worried that people wouldn't understand my perspective. We've moved! Please finish reading this post at: Ariel Yve Design

Anyway, since you are all so fabulous and supportive, I've decided to finally share one of my designs with you. Here is my first personally sketched design ever posted to my blog:

My rendition is a bit smaller and a bit more traditional than the JLo original, but overall I feel it still captures the same sense of drama.
Unlike the details of the original, my client's cake will be created using lavender colored fondant, silver piping/swagging and will feature fresh hydrangeas, spray roses and sweet peas on the upper tiers.
What do you think? Happy hump day!


  1. I'm impressed! My drawings are ever-so-much more cartoony!!!

  2. Very nice! It's definitely a convenient skill/talent to have as a wedding planner!
