"Purple was one of her favorite colors and she loved orchids," Seaman said, noting that an orchid dress that put Ball on Hollywood's first best-dressed list.
He focused on her younger, more glamorous years when Ball was a model and aspiring starlet prior to her popular television situation comedies that aired throughout the 1950s and 1960s.
"The colors and textures of her gowns lent themselves well to design elements of a wedding cake," Seaman explained, describing inspiration he found in a book about Ball.
Producers from The Food Network will air an hour-long program of the competition on Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, as part of a The Wedding Bowl Night marathon. However if you miss Wedding Bowl, you can view the actual Lucille Ball cake at Seaman's Marked for Dessert: The Neighborhood Bakeshop, in Libertyville.
