Orange Tree Wedding Cake


I love doing wedding cakes here at Twiggs when I’m given a little creative license and a new challenge.  It’s also very gratifying to be able to give someone something unique for their wedding cake which really represents them.  This past weekend I had a fun challenge.

Brieanne grew up in an orange grove — her dad grows oranges commercially — so she wanted her cake to have an orange tree growing up the side of the cake.  We’ve done a lot of wedding cakes that have branches going up the cake with orchids or leaves on the branches.  Brieanne had seen these and that’s what initially drew her to Twiggs.  But she didn’t want just branches, she wanted the whole tree on a cake with square tiers.   As I thought about how to place the tree on the square tiers, it occured to me that it would be cool to have the main trunk going up one of the corners with the branches covering two sides of the cake. 

The reception was at the Southwestern Yacht Club on Point Loma.  Honestly, I don’t go there very often and it’s been a couple of years at least since I was last there.  It’s tucked away off a side street and right on the bay, of course.  I’m pretty sure the place has been refurbished since I was there last and is looking quite spiffy.  The carpetting and chairs in the main banquet room are navy blue and the room has wall to wall windows on two sides overlooking the marina and various boats in dock.  The orange theme was carried throughout the wedding.  Each name card was on top of an orange.  The oranges — both real and the ones on the cake — really popped against the navy blue that dominates the room.  The cake practically screamed “Look At Me!” from across the room.    Brieanne’s mom and bridesmaids all saw the cake when I set it up and were sure Brieanne would love it.  I hope so, because I sure did.
