A Very Big Cake

This cake was for a bride who had her priorities in the right place...She cared about the cake most of all!!

Not that everything else wasn't important, but when she came to me to consult about her cake she made it very clear that she was putting a priority on the cake, and even though the design that she wanted would serve far more guests than she was having she wasn't concerned about that.

We worked it out so that the cake was a combination of real and styrofoam tiers so that she wouldn't be stuck with TOO much extra cake, and then I started working on the flowers.

I was going to count how many flowers went onto the cake, but I totally forgot to. Halfway through the setup, which took over an hour and a half, the bride arrived to get ready for the ceremony. She walked into the room to look at the cake, and started to cry.

In a good way, thank God.

In the melee that followed, as the photographers and friends snapped pictures of her reaction, I remembered that this is why we do this.

A lot of the time we deliver the cake and leave, and we never hear from the couple again. I know that the work that we do makes someone's wedding day happier, but to get a reaction like that was really great.

Congratulations, Lisa, and I hope everything went well this evening.
