|A wedding in Tuscany
was the theme of Jamie's wedding. This
very talented bride and her talented
grandmother created the gorgeous
bouquets, table arrangements, cake
table and backdrop and a special set up
for the groom's pumpkin pies!
Jamie wanted a cascade of flowers that
were colored in the jewel tones of plums,
burnt oranges, deep golds, burgundies,
greens, ivory and fall leaves too!
Her cakes were butter pecan with cream
cheese and chocolate with chocolate
buttercream filling. Her 6" hex, 8"
square, 14" round and 16" square cakes
were decorated with a grape cluster
impression and dusted to invoke the
feeling of an old world Tuscan villa.
Flickering candles dropped down each
tier of the cake and their initials were at
the top. Sugar Calla lilies, roses,
clusters of grapes, twigs, hydrangea and
fall leaves cascaded down the side of
the cake in vibrant colors.
The cake was on a plateau of glass that
added that extra special touch.
The cake served 237 guests while
reserving the top tier for their first
