Re-inventing a Classic

Posted on August 3, 2017 at 12:20 AM

This past weekend we presented Carol and Raul's wedding cake at the Clinton Town Hall in Clinton, Massachusetts. Our lovely bride Carol is very traditional and wanted to have an old-school wedding cake with separate tiers, and fountains. Sometimes making classic cakes can feel a bit dated but I was up for the challenge. Carol is young and vibrant so I wanted to highlight her youth by adding a modern twist to her vision.

I decided to give it a fresh look by adding ruffles emulating the wedding dress, and gilded decorations. The touch of gold made the cake look regal and timeless. The bride also wanted to highlight her Caribbean roots by having bright flowers. I added white lilies and coral roses with touches of champagne spray roses. To add to the tropical theme, the bride and groom selected for cake flavors Passion Fruit, Morir Soñando (orange cream) and Pina Colada.

Now let's talk about the size of this cake. Holy macaroni! it's huge! Let's go over all it went in to create this cake:

For this 250 servings cake I used 156 eggs, 14 lbs of flour, 18 lbs of butter, 24 lbs of sugar, 15 lbs of fondant and about 10 grams of edible gold dust (believe me, that's a lot of gold). It took 45 hours to complete, 1.5 hours to deliver and 1.5 hours to set up at the venue. 

After all was said and done, I think I accomplished what I set out to do, create a breathtaking, classic, and timeless centerpiece for a delightful couple who celebrated their love in from of all their family and friends, and I couldn't be more proud. Mission Accomplished! ;)

I want to express some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this particular circumstance. Right after browsing through the the web and getting proposals that were not pleasant, I thought my life was over. Living without the presence of answers to the problems you've resolved by way of this post is a crucial case, as well as the ones which could have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not noticed the website. That skills and kindness in playing with all things was very helpful. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a thing like this. I'm able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you very much for the high quality and results-oriented help. I won't be reluctant to refer your blog post to anybody who will need counselling about this subject matter.

I must show some thanks to you just for rescuing me from this type of incident. Because of browsing through the internet and getting ideas that were not pleasant, I believed my life was done. Living minus the approaches to the issues you've resolved by means of your blog post is a crucial case, and those that could have badly damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your website. Your own expertise and kindness in controlling almost everything was valuable. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a subject like this. I can also now look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for your high quality and result oriented help. I will not be reluctant to recommend the blog to anyone who ought to have care about this area.
