Hearst Castle - Casa Del Sol

Michael proposed to Tatiana in front of Casa Del Sol at Hearst Castle, California, so of course a Hearst Castle wedding cake was perfect way to start their new lives as Husband and Wife.

Hearst Castle is located overlooking the Pacific Ocean in San Luis Obisbo County owned by William Randolf Hearst.  After 25 years of construction, the castle was ready in 1947.  The castle grounds encompasses 250,000 acres, complete with it's own zoo, 2 pools, and three guest houses. 

Hearst Castle has been host to many well known guests such as Winston Churchill, Charles Lindbergh, Howard Hughes, Charlie Chaplin, Cary Grant and Carole Lombard to name a few.

Here is my edible adaptation of Casa Del Sol of Hearst Castle.
