Project Description

These delightful morsels are treasures, every one. Each and every individual “cakelet” here is a monument to one of the most famous and enduring brands in the world: Chanel. Since the 1920s, divinely simple, yet elegant, in women’s haute couture has been the trademark of the house of Chanel, most famous for “the little black dress” and Chanel No. 5 perfume. Replacing the restricting and overly-fussy clothing of the Edwardian era, “Coco” Chanel’s designs were ground-breaking and immediately coveted by women, everywhere. This homage to her and her brand is in keeping with that tradition. The icing on these dainties is patterned and detailed with meticulous care. Perched atop each one is either a handbag, fabulous piece of jewelry, a stunning pair of patent leather mules, or the acclaimed interlocking “double-C” logo. Red velvet with “classic black” icing, or airy white cake in frosting to match, each is truly a work of art. On the top pedestal is the crowning glory of this work – a large round tier in shimmering white satin frosting, complete with quilted motif and a larger rendering of the “double-C” logo. A strand of pearls encircling the base, and another, draping down from the top, add the most classic touch of casual glamour, and a splash of brilliant red, in the form of an extra large peony finishes of “Delicacies by Chanel” in highest fashion.
