A truly stunning cake that would look equally at home in a designer boutique or, as shown at Cake International, shown off in an amazing hanging crystal display stand.
Paul's design formed part of the amazing display of Wedding Gowns Through the Ages showpiece at Cake International's Alexandra Palace show in April 2017.  Paul's design was inspired by Ian Stuart's famous wedding dress, shown via the Templates tab below.
In this tutorial you'll learn how to create lovely textures, make edible flowers, make crystal stamens, work with cake lace and lots more!

We'd love to see your take on the Crystal Parade - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.
