This cake was designed with Ascot in mind. I basically wanted to create some dahlias for a demonstration I have coming soon and thought it would look fantastic on my exhibit table.

These subtle pink hand-made dahlias look stunning on the hat cake – it took a few evenings to complete them by letting them dry at different stages. A ruffled piece of modelling paste that looks like draped fabric draws the eyes to the delicate flowers sitting on top.

Mounting the cake on two sugarpaste covered boards with ribbon around the edges turns quite a simple cake into a stylish hat.
