Seinfeld Groom's Cake

A fan of Seinfeld received this surprise three tier Groom's cake for a wedding rehearsal dinner at the Hanover Marriott hotel in NJ.

Something to please every taste. The bottom tier is pure white vanilla cake with chocolate orange filling, while the top tier has dulce de leche cream filling. The middle tier is chocolate fudge cake with chocolate raspberry filling.

I scuplted fondant figurines of each main character in the show (Jerry Seinfeld, Elaine Benes, Cosmo Kramer and George Costanza), while many iconic items from your favorite episodes decorate the cake: Can you spot Kramer's pipe and shirts, the blue sofa, soup, babka, bagels, chinese food, even the envelopes that killed Susan!

Steinway Grand Piano Groom's Cake

Our bride wanted to surprise the groom at their wedding reception with a special cake that matched his passion for music. I created this Steinway Grand Piano cake, with a figurine of the groom sculpted from fondant sitting on a padded bench. Inside is pure white vanilla cake with dulce de leche cream filling.

Under the piano cover you can see the sound board and the strings, while below the piano the player has his feet on the damping pedals. I added a vertical stand with sheet music when the cake was delivered.
