Runway couture as you鈥檝e never seen it before is how we鈥檇 describe Arlette Novelli鈥檚 over-the-top cake creations. The San Francisco-based pastry chef brings her love of architecture, fashion, and art into everything she touches at her Three Little Cakes studio. Alexander McQueen, Carolina Herrera, and Elie Saab are just a few of the fashion designers she鈥檚 paid homage to and the results are *almost* too pretty to eat.

鈥淚 love pulling inspiration from these amazing pieces and putting them into something edible,鈥 says Novelli. 鈥淭wo of my favorite events that I look forward to each year are New York Fashion Week and the Met Gala. I鈥檓 always in awe of the avant-garde gowns that float down the red carpet and in a couple of weeks I鈥檒l be making a cake inspired by Blake Lively鈥檚 Versace gold dress with blue feathers.鈥

Looking for a new way to upgrade your wedding day style? Look no further than a few of Novelli鈥檚 ultimate confections and the designers that inspire her.

1. Alexander McQueen: 鈥淭his cake was inspired by a beautiful red and black gown created by Alexander McQueen,鈥 says Novelli. 鈥淭he customer was having a 50th 鈥楥asino Royale鈥 birthday party and she wanted a red and black cake, so I could not resist recreating the embroidery on this textile.鈥 (Photo via Douglas Novelli)

2. Krikor Jabotian: 鈥淜rikor Jabotian makes incredibly romantic gowns, and this design had so many details with coral and leaves that I just fell in love with its architecture,鈥 she says. (Photo via Douglas Novelli)

3. Krikor Jabotian: 鈥淭his gown was so goddess-like 鈥 I loved the flow of the lines and the tiny beading detail,鈥 says the mother of three (that鈥檚 who her bakery was named after). 鈥淚t was not easy making fondant flow in that way, but what I loved most was making the small beads for the top tier.鈥 (Photo via Douglas Novelli)

4. Elie Saab: 鈥淲ho doesn鈥檛 love the embroidery on this jacket? I tried to recreate it with fondant leaves that I hand sculpted,鈥 she explains. (Photo via Douglas Novelli)

5. Alexander McQueen: 鈥溾楾he Horn of Plenty鈥 was exhibited at the Met as part of McQueen鈥檚 鈥楽avage Beauty鈥 exhibit, so I had to pull inspiration from this and create a cake using edible black feathers,鈥 Novelli notes. 鈥淎lthough it鈥檚 very simple, it鈥檚 one of my favorite cakes.鈥 (Photo via Douglas Novelli)
