"A cake that captures all of winter's beauty is perfect to share with the one who melts your heart: Royal-icing snowflakes, fondant pinecones rolled in crystal sugar, gum-paste roses and edible pearls cover four tiers of sour-cream chocolate-chip pound cake, iced in American buttercream and rolled fondant, and hand-painted with blue and silver luster dust, about $12 per person, created by Bredenbeck's Bakery & Ice Cream Parlor, Chestnut Hill."
— From Philadelphia Wedding, Fall/Winter 2007
