I am curious to find out who made this cake. The top is leaning and it is also buldging out. Different stories says it is supposed to be leaning because that's the way the bride wanted it. Here is a link to see it. It's elegant. I also wonder what it cost.

There are a couple of threads discussing the cake. Apparently, the white house chef made the cake.

There's a thread about it in the Lounge section. There's a link there that explains what went wrong with the cake

Here's the highlights of it: Mary Jane Ontiveroz of the Ultimate Cheesecake in San Antonio decorated and delivered this cake. She has over 40+ years handling cakes. The cake, a combination tres leches/dulche de leche, did in fact have whipped icing. This is a very popular cake in south Texas and she has a lot of experience with it. The cake had all the necessary supports and was set-up completely straight. When Mary Jane asked where the floral was, she was told the florist would be finishing the cake. Mary Jane insisted to assist or do the floral herself! She was told that was not an option and escorted out by secret service ( not before getting a quick photo with George who was in the tent ). Our only guess is, the topper was to heavy or the florist did not use a ladder to place the arrangement directly in the center. Long story shortâ¦leave the entire cake to the pastry chef!!! Do not have people who cut flowers for a living stick them in your cake.â

I kind of thought that was what might have happened after I looked at it.
