The Wedding Cake
You know I love cake. If you didn't, then you don't know me that well. Katie and Luke (aka the Bride and Groom), asked me, Mom if I would like to take care of the cake. At one point Pam and I thought we could make it. While we could have made a spectacular wedding cake it was the transporting of same to the wedding location (hours hours away) in unknown weather (the heat) with everything else that needed to be transported (clothing, family, decor centre pieces) that I decided to call in the pros. It was worth the research and trips to Kitchener to "The Cake Box", and they made and delivered this beauty on time to the reception. The bottom layer was lemon with butter cream (it had real lemon zest in it) and the top two layers where chocolate with chocolate butter cream and raspberry puree as per the grooms request. Murray suggested the raised cake plate (a gift to the couple) and I added the garland with the mini twinkly lights. The wedding had a sunflower theme and the bakery added little texture dimples to the centre of each flower to look like the centre of a sunflower. The cake was perfect visually and tasted AMAZING. We were (and still are) very happy.
