It was made of foam, but if it were real, no
cake from any catering service in Durham could match its attributes:
it could weigh about 160 pounds and serve about 320 people,
with each slice costing $3,125 per slice. "We wanted to do something different
this year," said Butch Stivers, owner of Delicious
Cakes. "With the economy being bad -- and we do the Dallas
Bridal Show so many years -- we wanted to do something
that the new brides-to-be could see and dream about and get
their minds off everything else that's going on."
Although Stivers admitted that this is not the
first time that he had decorated a cake with diamonds, he
said that this is the first cake which he has spent $1.3 million
worth of Jewelry.
