This fabulous cake was one of the main attractions at the fairytale wedding of the two lovebirds, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria, in Paris last year. Created by celebrity cake artisan Sam Godfrey of Perfect Endings in Napa, California, who also made Oprah’s 50th birthday cake, over 1200 sugar-dough handcrafted red roses adorned this edible work of art. Apart from the insanely gorgeous roses, the cake itself was a vanilla-bean pound cake filled with crushed organic raspberry preserves and white buttercream.
This five-tier wedding cake in bold monochromatic red color is softened by its quilted fondant covering and the addition of cascading bows, made of colored white-chocolate fondant. However, pretty cake does not come cheap. This cake reportedly costs the couple a whopping US$40,000, since it was flown with an escort from Los Angeles to Paris – first class!
