Turner-Brotherton Oct 24

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.
