COSTA MESA — A six-tier wedding cake, created by a Costa Mesa bakery and adorned with 500 hand-crafted edible flowers, will be featured on an upcoming episode of "Access Hollywood."
One could say that the 6-foot sculpted, sugary masterpiece by Costa Mesa restaurateur Chris Russom, of Christopher Garren's Cakes, is fit for a princess.
That's because it is.
Russom designed the confection to match the china rumored to be selected for the wedding of British royal Prince William and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton.
While the cake won't actually be for the famous couple — it will be on a Los Angeles-area studio Thursday — it will give the American audience a better idea of what the British royals have in store for the much-publicized, yet secret, wedding plans.
"This is a young couple," Russom said of his artistic process behind creating the cake. "It was a long time ago when Diana married Charles — they had 27 cakes. In keeping with British tradition, it is regal, conservative, but still young and lively."
