This cake, photographed by Melissa Bagley, was inspired from my own wedding cake. I'm sure you've seen it, the Moroccan pattern, 5 tier cake that is in a few spots on my website and blog and facebook page. But in the end this cake looked very different. The piping was in ganache instead of a deep blue and then the burnt, fall colors of the hydrangeas and roses really made the cake pop.
I loved how this cake turned out. It is buttercream with piping in chocolate ganache.
This shape is a little different, the bottom and middle tier were on lifts. I think the proportions are really great.
I love Sesame Street and watching those vintage 70's sketches still makes me laugh. This cake would have made my day when I was 6, well actually, I wouldn't mind a Bert and Ernie cake right now. I'm convinced that they sculpted my sense of humor to what it is today.
This cake was for a couple, both Pisces, and both with Koi fish tattoos, who got married this weekend in Golden Gate Park.
