Three tier cakes tend to look "short", but after separating each layer with columns, and hiding the columns with many carnations, this cake looked tall and stately with vertical pleats. I added green hydrangea and berries on the top. It was amazing how the green hydrangea made the color of the carnations pop. I thought it came out pretty.
Now the groom cake was a project .... the top design took about 6 hours, but I loved how it came out. Robbie is seen no where without his I-Phone ... so a larger than life I-phone made a great groom cake. I customized some of the icons to reflect a few of Robbie's favorite things. The calendar icon was modified with their wedding date; the clock icon showed the wedding start time (6:00); the british flag repesented where they were engaged (London); the State of Georgia outline was to represent where they were from; the eight note was to show Robbie's musical interest; the Owl was to represent Kennesaw State "owls" where he went to school; the Gretsch logo was to represent Robbie's drum set; and last, but not least, the WB logo to show Robbie's love for classic cartoons.
Instead of driving all the way home, Clay and I stayed in the area .. we went out to dinner, shopped a little, laughed a lot ... and then headed back to pick up the plateau. The restaurant had run out of plates, so while they were washing more, I got hugs from both, Cara and Robbie (Cara looked beautiful, by the way) and made my way to the cake. When the plates arrived, I started cutting and plating the remainder of the wedding cake. It does my heart good when all that remains of a cake is crumbs.
