Tropical Wedding at Hartley's!

Oh, this wedding cake was really fun to create! After redesigning it with the big palm tree and all the flowers, I knew the reception would be beautiful! It was so colorful and the couple are both so sweet!

Westlake Village Inn

This was a late morning wedding, which I don't get to many of.

The day was beautiful and was warming up nicely for the ceremony which was held outside by the lake.

This cake had a great marblizing effect that Jennifer did a great job creating!

Susan at Flowers By Susan did a great job with the flowers for both the cake and the reception. Everything looked beautiful at Westlake Village Inn when I dropped off the cake.

There were so many great cakes, these were just a few that I thought were so creative. The quality of work is unbelievable to see in person, these few pictures really don't due them justice.
