The Baking of Adam

This may be the, err, sweetest, thing you might see all day.

In honour of the 450th anniversary of the death of Michelangelo this past week, the cake artist Michelle Wibiwo made her mark of the celebration in recreating the Michelangelo classic “The Creation of Adam”.

The reason this is so impressive is that she did this using frosting, marshmallows and sprinkles which ends up with artwork that is both breath-taking, drool-worthy and incredibly impressive.

The video is time-lapse of 168 hours of work on this masterpiece which is also quite hypnotising to watch.

Now, I want some cake….

Guest Contribution : Top Trends in Wedding Dresses for 2013

Your wedding gown is the centerpiece of your wedding. All eyes will be on you and the gown, and your choice will influence the colors and style of the bridal party attire, the types of flowers you choose, your wedding cake and your other decor. Of course, it will also be immortalized in your photos forever, so it’s important to make the right choice.

This season, there are many trends in wedding dresses that can make you a beautiful bride with an unforgettable wedding. Here are some of the top trends in wedding dresses for 2013 for you to consider:

Bare Backs

barebackwedding1Wedding gowns are getting away from the prim, covered-up looks of the past. Today’s wedding gowns are a little bit sexy, and they’re not afraid to show off your figure. One of this season’s top trends is the bare back — either from a plunging backline or from a cut out. The result is a sexy view of the bride as she walks down the aisle.

The strapless gown is starting to fade into the background as the strap rises again. This season’s hottest gowns have sexy asymmetric necklines with an off-the-shoulder strap. Once reserved for evening gowns, asymmetric necklines are giving a whole new look to wedding gowns.

This season’s gowns are getting lower in the back and higher in the front. The hemlines are getting shorter, resulting in gowns that have tea-length or even mini-skirts. It makes for a much easier dress to dance in during the reception!

Ruffled hemlines may seem like something that went out of favor in the 80s, but this season’s wedding gowns update that look to create something sophisticated and gorgeous. Sculpted ruffles advance far beyond the hemline and can take up the entire body of the skirt, creating dramatic and abundant swirls.

sheersleevesSheer Sleeves

Long sheer sleeves are hot right now, and they add a touch of old-world elegance to a gown. Lacy, sheer sleeves look romantic and feminine, and they are great for a formal wedding or one with a garden theme.

Of course, any dress you choose should reflect your personal style. Choose one of these trends and you’ll get a dress that’s memorable and a great reflection of who you are.

Lady Gaga Starts a Rumour…

Hiya Poutlings

We all know how much I love Lady Gaga like I love a hole in my head …..so I must say that I haven’t seen this coming. Although reports are not confirmed, shouldn’t you believe the rumours if they come straight from the horse’s mouth? In that case, the horse happens to be LADY GAGA, (not far off) and the rumour is that Versace is going to be doing the costumes for her upcoming tour, the BORN THIS WAY BALL.

Lady Gaga recently tweeted that Donatella Versace is going to be designing a makeover of the costumes for her ongoing Born This Way Ball. Unlike Gaga, I have a soft spot for Donatella, but only a small one.

Now, this is actually a rumour that we can start to believe. Donatella and Gaga have become fast friends, with their mutual love for Terry Richardson and vintage designs. Gaga was the first star that Donatella let browse the Versace vintage archives after the death of Gianni Versace. In fact, she went as far to don the iconic safety pin dress that Elizabeth Hurley made famous on the red carpet. Versace even outfitted Gaga for her 1980s inspired video Edge of Glory.

Sooo… this would make sense why these two have gotten so cozy lately. With Gaga’s perfume marketing extravaganza on the backburner, she can now focus on her upcoming album ARTPOP. With her recent collaboration with rapper Kendrick Lamar, Gaga appears to be striving for a new sound. Don’t believe me? Check out the preview for her video CAKE shot by Terry Richardson. It looks like Gaga wants to be Gagaganster… oh poor stutter.
