Cake by Rebecca de Coverly Veale ‘You said any medium – so I chose cake. I’m not a pro, just an enthusiastic baker and this was my first carved cake. I started by working out the basic shape from my cake tins.I worked out I needed 11,372cm^3 of cake batter to fill all the tins. Everything apart from the doweling rods and cake board was edible and whilst I was tempted to try and deliver it to your studio, I though that might have been a bit stalker-ish. Instead I took it along to a Kiss Me Deadly shoot, as I knew they were also big fans of yours. I did my best to copy your graduate corset but ultimately, as the dimensions were all off, decided it would just have to be “inspired” by instead. The sponge was a gluten free madera, soaked in a spiced syrup, glued together with dark chocolate ganache, and covered in rum buttercream and fondant (for the corset). I used cake lace for the knickers and brush embroidery to do the lace detailing. I painted the corset with edible airbrush paint.’
