They asked me to make a replica of their original wedding cake. While the pictures they had on hand were great, they didn't provide a lot of detail for their cake. So we went with simple and elegant.

The topper is not a Bake Lore original. The flowers are silk, and yes, those are Wilton pillars separating the tiers. I usually balk at the pillared look, but this is just simplicity itself. I love it.
Actually, this is my first ever cake with pillars. I've never had an order from anyone who wanted them. I usually hear someone from Food Network in my head saying something snide like, "Hey, um, the 80's called, and, um, they want their cake back!"
But I can't help it. I love the way this turned out. Honestly, it's a lot easier than sawing dowels to just the right height for stacked cakes. These hidden pillars are pre cut and ready to go - plus they are super stable. Gotta love it.

Sometimes, less is more.
This cake was three flavors - Bananarama, Chocolate and Buttery Yellow. I need to think up a better name for my chocolate cake...any ideas? I love good ideas:). It's iced entirely with Bake Lore vanilla butter cream and topped with some silk flowers.
