Renee's special day!

Our neighbour Renee's special day has finally arrived. Yesterday Rene and Dimitri said their vows and became one in front of their loved ones. The past couple of weeks we had been working on the gum paste flowers that were to be on the cake we made for their big day.

The design Renee chose was a 4 tier with a very elegant white on white with a touch of bling.

Each tier is bordered by a band of tiny glittery stones which certainly gave this cake the bling factor. The gum paste flowers made up of Peony and Roses softly cascade at different levels. Each flower was also lightly dusted with a edible silver dusting powder and the 2nd tier and top tier are imprinted with a Peony in the fondant and highlighted with the same silver dust.

A 12" round chocolate Guinness cake with white chocolate cream filling made up the bottom tier of this cake while the 2nd tier (10"), 3rd tier (8") and top tier (6") were all red velvet cake with cream cheese filling which happens to be Renee and Dimitri's favourite.  The top tier is being saved for them to enjoy on their 1st year anniversary.

Mel and I delivered and set up the cake at The Royalton Banquet Hall a few short hours before the reception and the decor of the hall was done in a beautiful elegance with a definite touch of bling which Renee loves.

Hubby and I were honoured to be among the many guests to help celebrate this wonderful day. Renee looked absolutely stunning in her beautiful princess gown and Dimitri stood by her looking very handsome and beaming with pride.  The day was a great success and the evening filled with great food and wonderful company.  Added entertainment was also provide which included a visit from Elvis, actually Sam who is an Elvis impersonated did a great job and sang 3 favourites for us.  All in all it was a great time shared by all.

We wish Renee and Dimitri many wonderful years together with lots of love, happiness and prosperity!
