The date is set, venue chosen
and menu selected. Now it is time
to create the quintessential
dessert centerpiece. Other than
the bride, nothing should outshine
the wedding cake and according
to Classic Cake executive pastry
chef Robert W. Bennett, the
options today are limitless.
With nearly 30 years experience, Bennett has seen trends
come and go. Tastes and flavorful
ingredients vary by season as
cake compositions in terms of
size, shape and style. For this reason, couples should start planning early, allowing the creative
process to flourish and avoiding
conflicts or last minute rushes. To
start, he shares words of wisdom

he has long stood by. The most


important point I tell any couple is
this is their day and the cake
should please them not the
guests nor the in-laws.
Of late, shimmer and glitz are
big just take a look at the Golden
Globes Red Carpet fashions earlier this month. Says Kristina Carr,
a consultant at Classic Cake,
Metallics and sequins are definitely making a comeback but
nothing tops the fascination with
geodes. Yes, these hollow, crystal-lined rocks are taking cake
design by storm.
Available in an unlimited rainbow of colors, the sweet edible
confection, most often made of
sugar, can be used to fully adorn a
cake or as a simple accent. It can

be the basis for a topper, as a


foundation along the base or both.
Sugar is not the only option,
Chef Bennett adds. We can blend
in rock candy, chocolate and
caramel to further embellish the
design and taste.
No matter the design or flavors
preferred, Bennett cannot stress
enough the importance request a
professional consultation and
tasting with a skilled wedding
cake specialist one who will
guide a bride and groom with
questions about event-related
specifics. It can make all the difference.
Classic Cake is located at 480
Evesham Road in Cherry Hill, and

chance.
Talk to us, honeymoon specialists, who can give you ideas and
choices.
We have created wonderful honeymoons; to the Caribbean
Islands, Hawaii, Mexico, Bermuda
and Punta Cana just to name a
few destinations. Perhaps Disney
yes a Disney wedding and/or honeymoon can be a lot of fun and
quite different!
How about zip lining in Costa

Whatever your desires, were


here to help you achieve your personal special time.
When you make an appointment
with one of Doctor Travels specialists, well discuss your time
frame, budget and individual interests.
There is a special place for
everyone.
Today, we like to think outside
the box.
For some, a quiet deserted far
away beach is ideal. For others, it
may be a ride on an elephant in
Africa or visiting the Galapagos
Islands.
All these are bucket list destinations that may be incorporated
into a honeymoon.
Well listen and well recom-

mend. Youll decide - all this at


the best price plus exclusive
amenities from Doctor Travel and

destination choice.
Doctor Travel has been in business for over 40 years. That
speaks for itself!
We offer a honeymoon registry
to help our couples supplement
their
honeymoon
budgets.
Friends and family can purchase
excursions or donate funds
toward your trip. Well discuss allinclusive versus a la carte packages and the wedding itself if that
is your choosing.
Just remember, its all about
the two of you!
We hope to be a part of your
memories. Congratulations!

Carluccis Waterfront
Building a family legacy was
never the original intention of the
four Capuano brothers when they
arrived in the United States from
their beautiful hometown of Monte
Di Procida, just south of Naples,
Italy.
Their immediate goal was to follow Mama Rosaria's advice " to
put your whole heart into everything you do, always in pursuit of
health and happiness." They were
taught that was the secret of success in their new land of opportunity.
Today, the Capuano brothers
have six locations in Pennsylvania
and New Jersey. Carlucci' s
Waterfront in Mt Laurel, purchased in 2001 is their largest
and most ambitious location, and
their first restaurant with a liquor
license. It seats 325 indoors, with
a 25-seat bar, and 100 additional

on their beautiful patio terrace


with a full view of the scenic
Rancocus Creek.
This is a wonderful location for
rehearsal dinners, birthdays,
anniversaries, baby showers,
bridal showers, and of course,
weddings! With a beautiful view
overlooking the Rancocas Creek
and the gorgeous outdoor patio,
Carluccis Waterfront is the perfect location for any event.
Carluccis Waterfront won 2015
Best of SJ Magazine for their $15
lunch express menu. The menu
includes a starter, entre and
fountain drink for $15 or for $20
starter, entre, glass of wine and
dessert. Offering half price bottles
of wine every Wednesday and
Friday. Bar specials include happy
hour every day from 3-6 p.m. Half
price bottles of beer and glasses
of wine every Monday-Tuesday,

half price all martinis every


Thursday and half price bar appetizers every Sunday!
Valentines
weekend
at
Carluccis is always a great place
to take your date. Enjoy our
romantic atmosphere while overlooking the beautiful Rancocas
Cree. We will offer a special menu

showers for the upcoming season.
