When The Voice’s RaeLynn tied the knot with financial advisor Josh Davis last Saturday the evening was pure romance — right down to the couple’s wedding cake.

“[Our cake designer] Jay [Qualls] made the most magical, whimsical cake that matched our wedding theme perfectly!” RaeLynn tells PEOPLE. “Josh smashed the cake in my face, and I didn’t mind it because it was chocolate.”

Chocolate with a twist, that is.

The eight-tiered cake (yes, eight!) was made of three different flavors — almond cake with almond buttercream, strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream and sliced strawberries in between each layer, and a chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream — to feed their 300 guests, including RaeLynn’s Voice coach Blake Shelton and girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

Inspired by the Franklin, Tennessee farm where they wed and the country wedding’s overall theme, RaeLynn wanted a combination of fresh florals and metallics to accent the design. And celebrity cake designer Qualls, the owner of Frosted Affair, delivered.

The cake layers alternated between a rustic, scraped buttercream airbrushed with a pearled finish and a white chocolate fondant dusted in edible gold glitter. To complete the look, a cascade of fondant molded leaves, tipped in gold, were wrapped around the cake and finished with pink roses, magenta dahlias and burgundy amaranthis with ivy and seeded eucalyptus by Caprice Palmer of the Enchanted Florist.

“We had a blast at their tasting, designing the cake and choosing flavors,” says Qualls. “They were simply a delightful couple and we hit it off instantly. RaeLynn kept saying, ‘I love you and I trust you!’ I appreciate them letting me take creative liberty with the cake design. I think it turned out simply gorgeous … It totally reflected their style and her flair!”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Pretty, but too busy….less is more…they should’ve cut down on the foliage, especially the hanging vines…it ruins the look.

PS…I hope that’s not gold “edible” glitter on 3 tiers??
While it is non-toxic, it is NOT edible and only meant for cake decorations that will be removed, like a topper or name plaque etc.

Its a beautiful cake but I see nothing whimsical about it. But smashing cake in her face? Are people still so immature, silly and typical by doing that?

Stop following other silly and typical people and their dumb behavior. Or you may find yourself being a typically divorced in under 5 years couple.

All plans incorporate completely free customer support, import and export data, charge card processing, and data backup. Writing data, especially huge files, directly from QuickBooks to other types of drives, though, can be problematic. QuickBooks has several rates of software and based on the requirements relies upon the selling price. There are many other software programs out there.
