A square buttercream cake with fresh flowers

Thank goodness I did not select photography for a living...  my camera was fogging up from the humidity ... this wedding was held at the Haile Plantation Country Club on Saturday July 31 early evening.. One of the warmest wettest days we had.  The reception was being held under a big beautiful tent  up on the green and the staff at Haile was ready for anything mother nature was going to dish out to them.  The florist from The Flower Shop was setting up the floral centerpieces and had buckets of fresh flowers for me to choose from..  I love fresh flowers on a cake and YES... there are safe ways of using fresh flowers on a cake..   This cake was a 4 tier square cake was separated by 2" columns and adding a fresh flowers giving it a floating effect.  The rain came down outside the tent and yet everything stayed dry inside.. The tented room was beautiful in the evening greys of a summer rain.  The weather cleared up in time for the ceremony and reception
