Every once in a while we get to make a cake that is a bit different than our normal wedding cakes. This Anniversary Cake is one of those happy examples. Made for good friends Nancy & Steve and Chris & Mark, both, respectively, celebrating their anniversaries, this cake is the epitome of married life. Figures were added that represent the unique characteristics of each: pets: cats and dogs, sports equipment and toss pillows, along with a “silly verse” a-la Freud-”One is very crazy when in love” -and the couples’ names whimsically piped on the slatted wood floor personalize this cake for the two happy couples. We had fun creating this scene.
Congratulations to Nancy & Steve and Chris & Mark.
For the most part our consultations go smooth and easy. And most of the time a bride knows exactly what she wants unless she brings all of her bridesmaids, her mom, her aunt and her grandmother… and, and, and the list goes on and on.
This can be a mistake, you don’t want to bring all of your friends, all the bridesmaids, sisters and their friends. It’s very sweet for everyone to want to be there for you, and it’s nice to include them. However having a lot of people at your consultation means a lot of different opinions, one person likes round cakes one likes square and they all like different flavors… So unless you can stand your ground and not let your vision be swayed we suggest only bringing your groom and the parents. This eliminates a lot of confusion and frustration and gives you a special memory you’ll remember forever. (after you have your cake ordered you can always take them online and show them a picture :0)
