Greenwich Wedding Cake | L'escale Wedding | Silver and Blue Wedding Cake

This past June, we created a custom wedding cake for a wonderful couple, Shelby & Rob.
The wedding reception was held at L'escale, a fine French cuisine restaurant at the Delamar Hotel in  Greenwich Harbor, Connecticut.

When designing a custom wedding cake, we take inspiration from elements from the wedding.  In this case, we took inspiration from the flowers, the beautiful invitation by Paper White Stationery, color palette (silver and blue), and the bride's Monique Lhuillier dress.  

The couple also wanted to include their adorable bunny, Cooper, in the wedding cake design.

Bright hydrangea flowers in shades of blue were used throughout the reception.

 The final result was not only an elegant & beautiful centerpiece at the wedding, but equally delicious. Shelby & Rob chose alternating tiers of Dark Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Mousseline and Bittersweet Ganache, and Spice Cake with Orange Mousseline and Dulce de Leche over Apricot Preserves.

It's so rewarding hearing back from our clients after the wedding is over:

"I just wanted to thank you for our gorgeous cake this weekend.  We were both excited to see it, and I thought the sketches were amazing - but they did not do it justice.

I was able to take a peek at our reception during cocktail hour and I have to say that the sight of that cake truly left me breathless.  The attention to detail was stunning - I spoke with many, many guests who could not believe that the flowers were not from our florist!!!  So many people (too many people to even count!) also said that the flavor of the cake was phenomenal and we agree. People were going table to table and stealing bites from strangers to get to try both flavors!

The fact that our little rabbit was tucked in there was a great little treat for us.
Thank you again for helping us to create such a memorable weekend!

Congratulations to Shelby and Rob, we wish them many years of happiness together!
