Couture Cake Sprinkled With Sugar Dust

Has anyone been to the store lately? What happened to all of the Valentine candy? I swear these chocolate candymaker companies are repackaging the prior holiday candy (valentine's day) to meet the current holiday (easter) candy demand. LOL I wonder what the shelf-life is for chocolate? When I walked into the store the other day, I had to rub my eyes. There were Easter bunnies, baskets, grass, eggs, and candy just waiting to be purchased. Easter is April 8th!!! HaHa Tell me what hasn't been commercialized!?! I love all of the above you guys, but please remember it IS a religious holiday! Sheesh.

Oh well. To satisfy your springtime easter pastel palette, I bring to you an editorial entitled 'Moon Dust Is Icing Sugar' that appears in the 2012 Spring-Summer issue of UK's POP magazine. Unlike me, I KNOW the model didn't gobble down any of that cake on set! HAHAHA It was probably faux cake anyway! LOL It features model Frida Gustavsson. Fashion editor Tamara Rothstein has picked designs from Christopher Kane, Viktor & Rolf, and Valentino. The set was designed by Gary Card (click on his blog! OMG'd the sets he has designed and campaigns!!! Ah-mazing!) and flirty curls by Tina Outen. Makeup is by Inge Grognard. The photographer is Daniel Sannwald of Management Artists. Enjoy and I would like to thank everyone for all of the beautiful birthday wishes! I enjoyed reading each and every one. I had a wonderful birthday! Now, I just need a dress like the one below, without the poofy hips! This baby has enough back! LOL  ;)

  1. Chocolate doesn't need a shelf life in my house... ;-) Those pictures are VERY sweet, nearly too pastel-y for me, but still very pretty. Have a lovely day xo

  2. Ah, such sweet images. I agree with Poirot. A spot too pastelish for my taste, but still very lovely. xxx

  8. I agree with you!!! They have to be saving saving that chocolate for next year. If they couldn't save it, it would so be on sale for $.99 right now!!!!

    Easter is my favorite holiday out of the whole year. The food is yummy. The colors are pretty. And it starts to get nice outside. (Not that NY had a winter anyways. It's 60 degrees outside!!!!)

  10. These pictures make my teeth hurt because they are so sweet and pastel. I do love that white bathing suit though!

    I had the same reaction last Wednesday when all of the Valentine's Day chocolate was gone and pastel eggs were everywhere, Lent hadn't even begun!

    And a HAPPIEST BELATED BIRTHDAY to you Kim! I hope you had an amazing day celebrating Mardi Gras!

  15. These editorials are such candies to my eyes, gotta love pastel colors.

    You may be right Kim. Those V day chocolate must have been repackaged for Easter's..lol. I was wondering the exact same thing..where the hell did all Valentine's chocolate went just days after?? I was planning to stock some up when they were on sale but they were gone.

    ReplyDelete
  16. *sigh* I adore them..and I want to wear them all..I love it!! And sure enough I would eat all that cake - no problems!! Haha!! I know what you mean about Easter, it's way over commercialised now...you can't even breathe in one holiday before they are shoving the next down your throat it seems these days!! Hope your week has been great doll, I took some days off to chill, but I'll be posting tomorrow ;) xox

  19. Dude...I went to 2 stores ON Valentine's Day & both of them already had all their Easter stuff out. I was sooo mad! Can't we let one "holiday" pass BEFORE we start putting out decorations for the next?? Besides, who's going to buy Easter candy on Valentine's Day & save it until Easter? So weird.

    That last picture is making me hungry!

  20. I feel like i'm living on Candy-land when I pop over here! Easter is such a massive deal in Greece - Easter Sunday is the week after yours... I'll be prepping for Easter in about 2 weeks, it's crazy!
    It doesn't help that the images are making me crave sweet stuff too!

    Kim - thank you SO much for your comment, I wouldn't have it any other way - not being real/being someone else that is!

  22. I'm not a fan of how commercialized certain religious holidays have become cause it just takes away from their true meanings. You always manage to find the sweetest editorials Kim! I just adore looking at all this confectionery goodness cause looking is calorie-free lol.

  28. Hi Kim! Happy Belated Birthday! I feel a little bummed I missed it. I've been sick and on drugs so I'm not all here. lol. I went to get some half-priced valentine candy the next day and it had been pretty much cleared out. You're right. Easter stuff is everywhere! I love the pastels in these photos. So breathtaking!

  29. I love the editorial. So much effort goes into them! Easter eggs etc started appearing in our stores here (Melbourne) within the first couple of days of January! It's ridiculous

  41. Gorgeous editorial!

    We've had Easter candy in the stores here for months, very funny to see. I guess they are trying to maximise the time they can make money with egg and bunny shapes!

  44. The pastry chef is extremely talented. These cakes are exquisite. I mean, just look at the fine details. Yup, I agree. Not a single piece passed thru the lips of these models. In fact, I'll happily pass over some of my excess weight to them.
