Bolton-Spiller, Atlanta Hilton NE, 9/6/8
The wedding of Lisa Bolton and Dave Spiller. A large event (250 guests), and held in the grand ballroom of the Atlanta Hilton NE in Norcross. Lisa was more traditional and wanted a 5-tier cake .. each layer with a different design. The groom cake was my idea .. I had seen a photo of this cake in a magazine (as a wedding cake) and wanted to recreate it in a small scale as a groom cake. So, friend Machelle and I had fun earlier in the morning, cracking chocolate and creating the design on the cake. Thanks, Machelle !!! I often name my cakes .. the groom cake is called "All Cracked Up". I see great potential with this cake .. it can be done in just about any color ... yellow buttercream with dark chocolate, green and brown .. the possibilities are endless.
