Ivory, Black, and Plum Wedding Cake at Urban Enoteca

Naz and Beni were married last Saturday at the First Romanian Pentecostal Church. They hosted their 230 guests at Urban Enoteca in Seattle, where Flame Catering served an amazing Persian buffet.  My husband and I attended the wedding, which meant an early start to the day -- we had to get to Urban Enoteca and set up the cake with enough time to spare before the ceremony began in Kenmore!

The five-tiered cake featured two floral-foam separators, studded with fresh ivory roses and hydrangeas. Three handmade sugar peonies in a dark plum color, as well as black satin ribbon trim, helped to tie the cake design in with the rest of the reception decor. 

Three of the cake's five tiers were embossed with a series of interconnected ovals, with piped silver dots at the intersections. The other two tiers were subtly quilted with a stitching tool (some photos capture the quilted effect better than others).

The whole confection was displayed on a 28" diameter wooden pedestal, draped with white satin, to create extra height (the cake needed to be visible from across the massive banquet space).

Half the servings were Classic Banana cake with cream-cheese Swiss meringue buttercream filling; the remainder was Pink Champagne cake with whipped champagne frosting. Delicious...

Congratulations, Naz and Beni! We're delighted to be counted among your friends, and it was a treat to have been part of your wedding celebration.
