Gerbera Daisy & Chocolate Wedding Cake @ Independence Harbor, Assonet Massachuetts
One of my favorite venues is the flawless and perfectly kept gardens of Independence Harbor in Assonet Massachusetts. This particular wedding, held on a blustery afternoon in October included gorgeous fresh gerbera daisy blossoms by Nancy and her talented staff at A Wareham Florist. Bright yellows, fushias, oranges and reds were showstopping on this white buttercream cake with tiny hand piped five petal daisy accents. The dark chocolate colored band at the base of each tier is completely edible and hand rolled from dark chocolate sugarpaste and then polished to a satin finish. Piped over the chocolate band is a small base of ivory pearls.
The chilly day was foiled by a fresh fruit cake: vanilla butter cake soaked in vanilla bean syrup with fresh strawberries and buttercream filling.
Here is the original sketch:
