Mango Calla Lily Wedding Cake

Here's another wedding cake from back in October 2010. This one was done for some friends who were in the same doctoral program as me at the University of Florida. I'll post the groom's cake tomorrow - it's very "scientific."

Megan and Jeremiah got married at the Sweetwater Branch Inn, where they set up the wedding cakes in front of a gorgeous mirror in the foyer area.

The cake was iced in buttercream, and here is a close-up of the gum paste Mango Calla Lilies cascading down the cake and the hand-piped details that matched the embroidery on Megan's dress.

Their wedding photographer was another friend of mine: Elise Kersey. Here are the shots she got:
