Duff Goldman, the star of the hit TV show Ace of Cakes, is no stranger to creating magical cakes for every occasion, from Hollywood premieres to presidential inaugurations and weddings.
So, of course, when he proposed to his longtime girlfriend last April, we all couldn't wait to see what type of cake they would serve at their wedding.
Goldman and Johanna Colbry finally tied the knot on January 19 at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, and their choice of confections certainly did not disappoint.
The pair treated 250 of their closest family and guests to five cakes, each one with its own unique flavor combination and decorative touches.
The main treat was an ocean-inspired cake, suspended from the ceiling and decorated with sugar sea glass and bubbles. According to Martha Stewart Weddings, the chocolate-peanut butter confections were created by Goldman and his team at Charm City Cakes.
The edible sea dragons around the cakes were inspired by Colbry, who Goldman described as "gentle, graceful, and sweet."
The fun-loving couple also made sure to include a classic cake in their dessert lineup.
Goldman created a traditional six-tier red velvet and brown butter buttercream cake with piping that matched the lace on the bride's dress.
Even though he's the cake expert, the sweet groom made sure his bride did not miss out on the cake tasting and designing process.
"I didn't want Johnna and her mom to miss out on designing and tasting the cake just because I'm the cake guy," he said.
For their third and fourth cakes, Goldman baked a pumpkin chocolate chip and a carrot sheet cake.
These treats were available alongside a vanilla and chocolate sundae bar with all the fixings you can think of - brownies, cookies, sprinkles, whipped cream, almond butter sauce, and banana foster.
As for the final "cake," don't let the beautifully decorated tiers fool you. It really isn't a cake at all, it's just shaped like one.
The entire thing is made out of meat!
The bottom tier is made with Colbry's favorite meatball, the one above it is meatloaf, followed by shawarma, and finally, Goldman's favorite Pennsylvania scrapple.
The cake was frosted with mashed potato and decorated with bacon roses.
As amazing as they were, the eye-catching desserts weren't the only highlights of the reception's menu. For the cocktail hour, food stations, including a pretzel table and cheese bar, were available inside the African Mammal Hall.
As the evening unfolded, guests also got to indulge in four food bars, featuring L.A. street tacos, basked potatoes, southern barbecue, and Italian foods.
It couldn't have been easy putting all of this together, but both Goldman and Colbry credit strong communication and trust in their vendors, especially wedding planner Mindy Weiss, for the success of their big day.
Congratulations to Goldman and Colbry!
