Dr. and Mr. Steven Kirschner, Esq.

You may remember Chelsea Magin from the post a while ago where I made her a Sharklet graduation cake.  Well, this April, her and Steve Kirschner tied the knot.  Their wedding was so unique and fun.  They got married at the Baughman Center on the University of Florida campus and had their restaurant at a new Gainesville restaurant called Boca Fiesta.  Their table decorations were photos of the couple held up by Dia de los Muertos skulls.  Instead of throwing the bouquet and garter, they put them in pinatas and let the single men and women attack the prize like kids going after fallen candy.

A few weeks before the wedding, Chelsea contacted me and asked me to make a surprise groom's cake for Steve.  After a little while, she decided that it would be perfect to have a cake decorated like a Dia de los Muertos skull.  The decorations were piped with royal icing in the colors of their invitations and decorations.  There was never any question about what flavor the cake should be - it had to be the Guinness cake.

The cake at the couple's table.
The picture next to was their Save-the-Date cards.

Very traditional wedding decorations, right?

The cake topper on the right was actually made by their sister-in-law.
It was really incredible and looked awesome on top of the wedding cake (which came later).
