15 Pretty Cakes


Chatelaine Magazine is celebrating 85 years this month and featured some very pretty cakes to celebrate!  They transformed four of their best-ever cakes into stunning works of art (that are apparently easy to make too). Check out how to ice them from videos they've posted online. (F above): Vanilla Cake in Pink Ombre,  (below) Cherry Cake with Marzipan Roses, Double Chocolate Espresso Cake and  Guinness Fudge Cake with Cloud Icing. Photographs by Colin Faulkner | Food Styling by Ashley Denton, Irene Ngo and Kristin Eppich.  I picked up my Chatelaine on Zinio.com yesterday.

Update:  Props were source/styled by Emma Reddington, she talks about where she sourced them on her blog today - click here to read.

Love the cakes and dreaming of the cake stands. Especially the ones in the last picture.

These are sooooo pretty! I love that most (or maybe all of them) opt for icing instead of fondant. I could never quite get into its level of sweetness.

Great post Jan! Like Kristen said, the prop styling was done by Toronto's Emma Reddington, a fabulous and creative gal who is Chatelaine's new Home Editor! This was her first issue with them, and my goodness she did a wonderful job! Yay Emma!
