This wonderful couple are quoted as saying they were "stuck" in Venice!
Due to the eruption of the volcano back when planes were grounded they got lucky enough to be stuck for a few extra days in Venice!! DARN!
The the brick pattern is to represent the sidewalks they sat on while
enjoying watching the gondolas and having their favorite "meals" each day.
The wine bottle is hand painted gumpaste. the lower part of the back of the bottle is cut out to look as if it is half in and half out of the cake.
Lots of time was pent playing cards, eating cheese and crackers and drinking wine, by the water!
All pieces are made of gumpaste and hand painted.
