I loved everything about this cake. I really did. I loved the tatooed bride. I loved the bride’s mother. I loved the vintage color palette of olive, coral, and peach.
I loved the venue–La Palapa in Long Beach. And I loved the fondant calla lilies on the cake.
But the thing I loved the most was the cake topper. It belonged to the bride’s grandmother who used it at her wedding. The bride’s mother used it at her wedding too. And the cake topper, with its silk flowers, delicate porcelain couple, and still in its original box, would now be used for the third time by the bride. It was my favorite part of the cake.
