I did my best to lighten the photos, but this is the only one to lighten enough. The reception site was ALL picture windows & the front of the cake was heavily shadowed. The top was carrot, the middle chocolate, and the bottom vanilla. All covered in off-white buttercream. I wish I had gotten a better pic of the seashells as I was really proud of them. lol The where white & off-white with gold luster highlights.
