I love when we get orders for wedding anniversary cakes. Weddings are a celebration of love and commitment so what’s better than celebrating the anniversary of that continued commitment?!
When Ros asked her parents what they wanted their anniversary cake to look like, her Dad replied, “I want it to say 61 and WOW.” So Ros did a little bit of sneaky research and discovered that 61 years ago, her parents wedding colors were pink and mauve. Here’s the cake we made for them:
It was a vanilla cake with chocolate fudge filling and icing, and the decorations were all done with pink and mauve fondant.
Ros’ response to the cake? “OMG…your cake was a huge hit. Wonderful. Amazing…deliciously great.”
My Aunt Debbie recently shared a photo of a cookie bouquet she ordered for my cousin’s birthday and it reminded me that I never showed you this bouquet!
I made this one for my in-laws’ 30th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. The bouquet featured 2 champagne glasses, 3 red roses, 1 “Happy Anniversary” heart, and 1 bottle of champagne displaying the year 1981.
Then, my mother-in-law Leona wanted me to take a good picture of the 2 of them. Before you see the pictures, it’s important for you to know that we were eating at Malio’s Prime Steakhouse in Tampa. It’s a fancy restaurant with spectacular food!
Ok, ignore my lack of camera skills in less than ideal photography conditions…
But I picked up the camera, counted to 3, and this is the shot I get:
Ok…let’s try again…
Not a horrible shot, but why must we always pose with our alcoholic beverages? And J-Dawg (that’s what I call my father-in-law) looks less than thrilled to be there. Third time’s the charm, right?
Hm…maybe not…Ok, let’s try ONE more time. We give Leona a little pep talk about calming down and looking “normal.” I pick up the camera again, assured that this will be a good photo!
But, now we’ve lost J-Dawg…
I give up.
