Photo shoot at the new Wilmington Convention Center!!!

 photos by The Three Divas
 We are so proud of our new Wilmington Convention Center!!!
We shot these promo photos in the lobby --
"Not a typical wedding?, not a typical Convention Center! -- 
Wilmington Convention Center.

 Jennifer (Diva #3) was our model and wore a black bobbed wig to convey the 1920s theme of the photo shoot.

Our cake and the event design was created to reflect the 1920s theme with use of red roses, white carnations, baby's breath and peacock feathers!!!

Event design is all about "the sum of the whole" -- beautifully reflecting the theme in every detail of the wedding!!!

As The Three Divas, we design the Wedding Cake, Bridal flowers & Event Design to compliment the Bride's colors, style and theme.

The opening event of the Wilmington Convention Center was the Cape Fear Wedding Show and we designed the cake for the Convention Center booth to reflect their logo, as seen in the poster behind the cake!!!

During the Cape Fear Wedding Show our 5 tier Wedding Cake was displayed in the Grand Ballroom of the Wilmington Convention Center.   We designed it to reflect the event colors and theme and decorated it with sugarpaste orchids.

Some of The Divas' favorite Wedding Cakes!!!

Our Sugarpaste Gardenias adorn a delicious butter cake frosted in our signature Italian Buttercream.  
We have often been told, "Your wedding cake is the best I have ever tasted!"  
Our goal is to design a fabulous wedding cake that uniquely represents each Bride & Groom, 
and for the cake and frosting to taste as good as the cake looks! 

Each gardenia is handcrafted, painted three times, and applied on site at the Bald Head Island Club.

A Tale of Four Cities!!!

As cake designers, what do you do when you get a request to create
a very significant birthday cake that needs to represent
Duplin Winery, Miami, Las Vegas & New York!!!...


This cake had a dark chocolate layer and
a vanilla butter cake layer on each tier,
frosted in our signature Italian buttercream.  
The decor was handcrafted out of sugarpaste and fondant.
