Nautical Themed Cake

Nautical Themed Cake on Cake Central

client requested nautical themed cake, this is what i came up with. original design featured teh black and white striped lighthouse in st augustines florida, but two days before the wedding, i found out the historic b & b would not allow a cake with those colors to be displayed indoors, so i had to do some quick scrambling to come up with something else. after a 22 hour marathon of decorating, i was exhausted but i think i finally made the bride and the owner both happy. sorry pic is so dark!

Beautiful. I love it. Great job...I can't believe the B&B said no to your original colors. Why would they care? Oh well, you knocked it out of the park anyway!


thank you so much for the generous compliments...i actually understand the policy, since the home has antique carpeting and they are nervous about the staining from black food dyes....what i don't understand is that i just happened to find it out, on my own, on thursday morning, and all the cakes were already baked. oh was ok in the end...i said so many prayers this weekend that i think i used up my stash!!!!
