Of Impressive Golf Trophies and Amazing Wedding Cakes

The sky blue Wedgwood cup that Hunter Mahan won yesterday at the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship, is one of golf's most distinctive trophies.

Named after golden age golf legend Walter Hagen, it will be the second piece of Wedgwood on Mr. Mahan's trophy shelf.

in 2010 Mahan won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, and took home the yellow-and-black Wedgwood Gary Player Cup.  You see, each of the four World Golf Championship events boasts  a distinctive Wedgwood trophy.  They're all  designed in a variation of the distinctive Jasperware style, inspired by cameo glass and embellished with ancient roman motifs ... and each bears the name of a famous golfer. 

After winning in Arizona yesterday Mahan suggested that it would be nice to have all four of the WGC trophies eventually. In the meantime there's an impressive new trend in wedding cake design based on the same Portland blue Jasperware style that inspired the Accenture trophy... and an astounding variety of towering Wedgwood cakes can be found on the websites of wedding planners and lifestyle experts.

As you may know Hunter Mahan married his beautiful wife Kandi just last year.  But if the couple should decide to renew their vows, they may wish to select a blue and white color scheme... and a cake to match their latest trophy.
