Old School

This order was placed by a couple of the sweetest guys. They were throwing a surprise party for their parents 25th anniversary and wanted a replica of the original wedding cake. I usually try to steer customers towards a more modern design but it was such a thoughtful gesture that I couldn't resist making it. It was actually a fun cake to make, although I was a bit nervous about the height of those columns. How did bakers in the 80's survive setting that up without having a heart attack? But I'm told it held up for the party so I guess those flimsy columns are sturdier than they feel. The parents loved the party and the cake and I was glad to be a part of it. Oh, and the topper is from the original wedding cake 25 years ago. I had to clean it up a bit but I finally got to use my archeology degree.

What a cute story! I love how it was the same topper from years ago. You did a wonderful job on the cake.
