To view this project's edibles, equipment and instructions, you will need to sign in or join Cakes & Sugarcraft Magazine - it's FREE and only takes a minute.

This wedding cake design was inspired by a bride’s beautiful Jenny Packham dress, embellished with pretty button and pearl detailing. The cake was personalised for the big day by incorporating elements of the dress design using little glazed sugar buttons that catch the eye. The fantastic Button mould from SK Great Impressions features seven buttons of different shapes and sizes. As with all moulds in the Great Impressions range, the Button mould is made from flexible silicone rubber approved for food contact.
