What's the saying? "Imitation is the sincerest of flattery" by Charles Caleb Colton
Just yesterday I was walking down Amsterdam Avenue and I was stopped dead in my tracks by a wedding cake magazine I saw in the window. I felt like I was dreaming. I was looking at my design on a cake, yet I hadn't made the cake. Yet, the design, piped in Royal Icing and using the brush embroidery technique, was what I had piped with my own two hands, but I didn't. You know what I mean.
It was my pattern but to be honest it was executed much better, much cleaner then I had! So I went inside the store to see who did it but alas it didn't say on first glance but I took a photo so you can see. The magazine looks to be from Australia which is such a coincidence. I have at least three classes this year with students flying in from Australia.
My Original Design
I looked up the original version that was featured in Modern Bride Magazine (R.I.P.) in 2003! The cake isn't even on our website anymore (besides the press section).
Well, I'm flattered.
