Destination Wedding

A pair of good friends recently wed in the Dominican Republic, and it was absolutely beautiful: fantastic weather, a gorgeous venue, and unlimited pina coladas ensured every guest had a fantastic time helping these two celebrate their new life together.

Of course, Sweet&Splendid couldn't bring a cake from Toronto to Punta Cana; but, we could bring one to the at-home reception. 

The wedding colours (for both celebrations) were rich purple and bright orange. Wanting to provide something fun and unique that encompassed the theme, I prepared a vanilla sponge cake with layered ombre ruffles from deep violet to tulip-orange. 

And I even got to eat it too! Very happy Sweet&Splendid got to be a part of such a great occasion for two great people. Congratulations, Pat and Beckee!
