Mardi Gras is this week, peeps, and you know what THAT means:
Time to make Fat Tuesday live up to its nommilicious name!
Although I found so many gorgeous masquerade cakes this week I've decided today will be less Mardi Gras and more carnival masks in general. That way I can show off ALL the colors.
Speaking of which, let's kick off with a classic:
(By Petit Cali Cupcakes)
Ahhh. Gold leaf, black lace, and red roses were meant to be together.
Or for something kicky:
Love the topsy turvy design here; doesn't it look like it's dancing?
You guys, these textures are everything:
What are those on the bottom? Glass drops? And the berry sprigs are perfection.
Here's one inspired by fire and ice:
I like the reversed colors and patterns on the mask.
And another stunner:
(By Kelvin Chua of Vinism Sugar Art)
Look at those metallics! Ah! And the butterfly mask matches the one on the cake board!
A sweet pastel number:
(By The Frostery)
So many cute elements - see the striped handle for the top mask? And I'm digging the random confetti bits sprinkled around.
If you're looking for wedding inspiration, I've got you covered right here:
(By Ana Paz Cakes)
And this next one is - dare I say it? - peachy keen:
Those are all handcrafted sugar flowers - can you believe it? So gorgeous, I want one to wear!
And finally, I don't know how they did this next one, but I think I'm in love:
(By Clairella Cakes)
Look at that oh-so-subtle leafy texture, and those colors! Ah! Reminds me of old-fashioned marble paper, or a soft watercolor painting. And while I'm collecting cake things to wear, I'd like that top mask, pretty please. :D
Hope you all enjoyed! Have a sweet Sunday, and a merry Mardi Gras!
