Centerpiece Cakes & Bride's Cake

We created these centerpiece two tiered center piece table cakes along with a three tiered bride's cake for Tiffany and Shawn a few months ago.

The color palette: violet tones, white balmy sea blue and seafoam greens- a hint of Victorian falir and a touch of the coast!

Tiffany really loved a bit of whimsy in the design including stripes and whimsical roses and a few sugar curls of gumpaste!

Two different table center piece designs were chosen each placed on alternating tables and the three tiered cake was placed on the sweetheart table for the bride and groom to enjoy.

Our Favorite Things!

So today let's stray from the norm of cakes and pastries & well--think about a few of our favorite things!

I have to start by first extending my praise to high school classmate of mine, Lauren Methia of Lauren Methia Photography whose photographs blew me away at a recent Bridal Shower and Wedding that I attended she shot- absolutely amazing work! I highly recommend her for any event- wedding, shower, family portaiture--you can find her at

Another of our favorite things... Persimmon Restaurant in Bristol, Rhode Island! Find owners Champe and Lisa Speidel serving local and very very special fare at their cozy and friendly restaurant. I bumped into Champe, the owner, at a speaking engagement at Johnson and Wales University College of Culinary Arts-- we were both speaking to a class of Juniors and Seniors.

You can contact Persimmon in Bristol, Ri:
