CupCake Couture

CupCake Couture

To mark the end of London Fashion Week and welcome National Cupcake Week, Food Network UK designer Janis Morrison created a Cupcake Dress made entirely of – you guessed it – cupcakes.

The Marie-Antoinette-inspired design was made up of 300 purple, pink and red cupcakes (made by Rosalind Miller Cakes), weighed 28 lbs, took 3 days to create and cost a whopping £768.85.

The dress was accessorized with red booties and a red handbag made of 230 individual fondant roses.

Want to continue to celebrate cupcake week? The Food Network UK will show cupcake-themed programming including Bake with Anna Olson, Barefoot Contessa, Cupcake Wars and Ace of Cakes on Saturday.

    This made me smile. Granted, I’d never want to see someone wear a commerical version of this(cupcakes aside) on the red carpet, but for what it is it is deliciously delightful!
