Dressing a Cake....


This weekend I created a wedding cake and groom's cake for a lovely couple, Angelique and Matthew. They were married at the Cummer Museum, one of the truly great venues in Jacksonville. 

The bride wanted the cake to recreate her wedding dress with the addition of flowers atop the cake, edged in gold luster dust. The flavor of the cake was: Yellow Butter cake with champagne and strawberry buttercream. 

The groom's cake was inspired by the groom's trumpet play. And of course, the greatest trumpet player of all time was Satcho, aka Louis  Armstrong. I searched for a design that I thought matched the style of the event, which I found in this amazing sketch, which I replicated.
