Sweet Matchmaking

June 03, 2007|Elizabeth Khuri

A wedding cake that looks as good as it tastes is hard to find. But nowadays couples want a cake that's not only flavorful but also incorporates their personal aesthetic. Joan Spitler, an artist at Cake Divas in Culver City, says "brides will bring in an accent from their wedding that we tie into their cake." To help them get the dessert of their dreams, Spitler has sculpted a cake out of chocolate fondant and gold to resemble a sari, created patterned tiers after a set of heirloom tablecloths, and tiled confections with edible pearls. On these pages, a Monique Lhuillier gown and china by Vellum inspire the Cake Divas to work their magic. The final creations will be sure to please any discerning bride.
