Wedding Flashback: CAKE!
This post might be out of order, but I had it written so I thought I would go ahead and hit the Publish button. Enjoy!
Much like the photography, there is not enough compliments in the world I could give to ABC Specialty Cakes. I don't think they have a website, but if anyone needs their contact info, just ask. After only meeting with her twice (both meetings relatively brief), and showing her my ideas, the cake of my dreams showed up that Saturday evening.
It was the most perfectly ruffled, 4 layer funfetti cake a girl could ask for. Especially considering I'm not exactly a "ruffle" kind of girl. It was topped with a sparkly brooch cake topper and monogrammed P, and cut into with this bowie knife.
Bowie knife? For a wedding cake you might be asking..... Well, my dad is a horse shoer who moonlights as a blacksmith who makes knives on the side. And for those of you who do not know, a horse shoer does just what the name says. He puts shoes on horses. Because yes, horses need some Nike's too.
Not to be out done my 4 tiered, ruffled piece of heaven, Michael had this made:
What can I say? My husband chose a Texas for his groom's cake.....we're two peas in a pod.
After admiring my cake for about five minutes as people crowded around, we finally got to the even better part of tearing into that bad boy and having a bite.
Honestly, I don't remember what it tasted like. I'm pretty sure I ate a piece, but I'm still not really sure if it was good, bad, or something else. I just don't remember. Since I've had a few cakes from ABC Specialty Cakes and never been disappointed before, I'm going to assume it was delicious. Plus, no one complained, and how can cake possibly go wrong? Enough sugar, and anything would taste delicious.
