a Chanel-inspired 30th birthday dessert display

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

i have been a big fan of cupcake d'lights for awhile now. ever since i've seen their images in flickr, i've been smitten and i have fallen in love with her elegant dessert displays and magnificent cakes. all the way from south africa, zahirah is one seriously talented cake designer.

the following images are from a 30th birthday party for a Chanel-lover and pediatrician. i LOVE the spectacular chocolate fudge cake she created. 

fondant-topped cookies showing the Chanel logo and # 30, instead of the iconic Chanel No.5

cake pops were adorned with Chanel ribbons

and finally, the beautiful dessert display in the neutral color palette of cream and dark brown. to see more incredible cake designs by zahirah, please visit her blog and flickr photostream

That cake is just gorgeous! A party like this would probably be the closest I would ever get to real Chanel. Beautiful!
