Fall is here even if the temperatures do not show it yet... I love working with the fall colors and for Betty Jo & Michael's cake we made sugar flowers in the golds & oranges of the "circus rose" and the coreopsis and mingled in amongst the sugar flowers were various chess pieces made of dark & white chocolate. YUM... the flowers and the chess pieces cascaded down the side of the buttercream iced cake with a queen & king pair crowing the top. Their cake flavors were vanilla chiffon with raspberry filling and chocolate velvet with chocolate ganache. I enjoyed the table arrangements of various chess boards.
