Wedding Cake in Florence, Italy. In this five tier topsy turvy cake, the force of the butterflies are literally lifting the hand piped, pearl-covered cake off the ground. The 100 edible butterflies were inspired by a vintage brooch and are painted in gold, reflective purple, and green jewel tones. For this cake I wanted to create the effect of the moment when the butterflies break free from their cocoon and take flight to begin their new life. Carrot Cake with Salted Caramel Mousse. As pictured serves 230.
