Corset Cake

A very dear old friend contacted me a few weeks ago to bake a cake and cookies for a bridal shower she was hosting.  When she sent me her design ideas I got very excited- it was something new for me and I couldn't wait to start putting the cake together.
She requested a corset-styled cake with the colors orange, purple and white.
After looking up various cake corset designs online I was able to come up with this one- which I must say, I'm very proud of!  This was my first real carved cake design.  I carved it free handed.  I was nervous that the bust wouldn't come out even but overall I think it all came out pretty well.
I sure hope everyone at the shower enjoyed the cake (both the outside and the inside!).

The bust still needed some fixing, but this was after carving the cake and applying the crumb coat

Fondant corset and "skin" on- all that was left were the details
