I had the honor and pleasure of making a beautiful cake for Joy and Troy, one of the nicest couples I’ve ever met. They chose an elegant Gatsby theme for their wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MD. The ballroom was beautifully lit and the decor was perfectly executed. Trisha Cranor of Working Brides and her amazing staff did a wonderful job coordinating the event. It was really interesting to see them all in action throughout the evening. What a treat!


I wish I could take credit for the design of this cake. The couple had seen a photo of the original, designed by Leslie Bruckman of Nom Nom Sweeties. I tracked Leslie down and asked if she’d mind my copying it. She was most gracious and gave me her blessing. I was most thankful, too!

I did my very best to do Leslie’s design justice. Here’s a quick photo I took in a rush. I can’t wait to see the photographer’s version. I’ll post that as soon as I get my hands on it.
