Melissa Torres from Cake Hero X Charles James Barbie™ Cake

Milk chocolate frosting and tiny bits of gold were used by Melissa Torres of Cake Hero, one of the 6 cakemakers who were asked to bake a « Barbie™ Cake » which reproduces a dress by Charles James, to celebrate the « Charles James : Beyond Fashion » exhibition, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, in New York, from May 8 until August 10, 2014.

To read about Barbie™-influenced collections and items, search for the « Barbie™ » post that I have published on September 19, 2013.

    What a wonderful idea and lucky Barbie to be in the center of all this deliciousness…
    Charles James was a true couturier and translating his gowns into edible delights…
    is truly ‘The icing on the cake’ for this upcoming Beyond Fashion exhibition!! ~ xo

      Thanks a lot, dear Sherri, for your sweet support ! Yeah, Barbie™ looks definitely good for her age hehe ! Maybe that it’s all this chocolate which has preserved her beauty ! The dresses designed by Charles James were so elegant that it’s an absolute treat to see them translated into edible versions ! I’ve got my ups and downs, like everybody I guess, but chocolate is always here to cheer me up ! Have a delicious day ! Mayann

      Me too, thank you : Barbie™ is such an iconic lady, especially when she’s dressed in an edible chocolate gown, which associates fondant, banana cake and milk chocolate frosting, yummy XD !
