Two tiers, dressed in a pale blue reminiscent of arctic ice, create a cool, sophisticated aura, in this pièce de résistance. Each tier is trimmed with a strand of the most delicate white seed pearls, adding a note of refinement to this design. The two large doilies are executed in meticulous detail to simulate the fine crochet work that is characteristic of these practical, yet ornamental, pieces of finery. The “open” pattern typifies the intricate patterns used in crocheting traditional doilies, and the ice blue of the cake is a splendid contrasting backdrop. Two enormous white peonies, with blue green centers, are perched atop this piece and give “Blue Ice and Doilies” its crowning touch of elegance and gravitas. You simply cannot go wrong with this timeless work of art.
