Simple and elegant wedding cakes are all the rage these days! And this cake is about as elegant as they get! I layered blue and chocolate colored ribbons to give a nice border and then scattered silver dragees on the tops of each tier.
This cake was delivered to Niko's Southside Grill. It was the first time I had been to their upstairs reception room. It was a very nice space to host an event. I even got to ride on the dumb waiter!!
Speaking of Niko's, I once had dinner with Jane Seymour and her husband James Keach at Niko's. Yes, THE "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman" Jane Seymour! It was years ago in my previous career. She developed a line of bedding and home accessories for our department store. She made personal appearances to all our larger stores and in my role as regional visual director I got to join her and our executive staff for dinner. She was very nice with just the right amount of "celebrity kookiness".
Since she's been named as an ET correspondent for the Royal Wedding, it's like I have an inside track to William and Kate's wedding... OK, maybe not!
