I made this cake for a friend’s 50th birthday party. It looks amazing and all the guests were very impressed!
I started with a chocolate sponge 14-inch rectangle cake then had a crumb coating applied to it to help the fondant stick. I made a shape of the basque on some greaseprooof paper and put this onto the cake then cut around it. For the boobs I made two chocolate dome cakes using a small glass Pyrex bowl, which was buttered and floured very well to stop the cake from sticking.
These were then trimmed and placed onto the main cake, I manipulated them slightly to get the correct shape I wanted for the boobs.
I then coloured my fondant icing to get a skin tone and this was then placed over the neck of the cake and the boobs. The pink fondant icing was then put into place. Then two small half-inch width strips of fondant were made to make the lace effect to go around the top of the basque by using a lace effect plunger. The black lace was again fondant cut into thin inch-long strips and placed in a kriss cross pattern all the way down the centre of the cake as shown in the picure below.
For the wire effect on the basque or corset I used pink fondant strips using edible glue to attach them to the cake. The overall was stunning and if you have a special person that would love this style of cake then get in contact with me. I have also created a red boob basque which can be seen on my website, which has a few extras on it.
