"My husband Willie proposed during a helicopter ride over the Golden Gate Bridge," says the bride, Rochelle. "He owns a construction business and had arranged for a sign to be placed near the bridge so that I'd see it as we flew over." Rochelle asked her cake designers to surprise the groom with a replica of the sign, so Lisa Restrepo and Donna Zell cut and welded a miniature trailer (with actual wheels!) and fashioned the sign from styrofoam and fondant. (The message was comprised of tiny orange-colored fondant circles.) The sign was displayed alongside several layer cakes baked in the groom's favorite flavor: almond hazelnut with Frangelico-flavored Italian meringue buttercream icing.
