Fall-ing in Love

I love the fall. Early fall, when flowers are still blooming and the colors are rich and vibrant with the change of season. This cake was for a wedding open house style reception. We weren't sure how many people were going to be coming through, so we made plenty. A typical two tiered wedding cake, with an additional matching sheet cake just in case.

When doing tiers, pre-assemble the cake before delivering to make sure it all fits and the colums are positioned correctly. Then take it apart and transport with colums in place. You reassemble the cake at the event. So here are shots of the seperate tiers, the final cake, and the extra sheet cake.

I used white daisies, blue forget-me-nots, red primroses, and rusty chrysanthemums. Top and bottom borders are the shell borders, and I used a ruffled garland on the sides.
