Wedding Cake

We gave Jennifer, the executive pasty chef at the NCMuseum of Art, only a couple of directives for our wedding cake as she knew that the cake had to feed 75 people. Instead of the traditional stuffy cake, we wanted something that encapsulated our mutual loves: Books, Art, Chocolate, Coffee, Wine & Travelling. Depending on how much each book would feed, we gave her a number of themes to write on the spine of each book to select at her leisure. The coffee cup at the top (filled with chocolate mousse) represents our first meeting (a local coffee shop) and the articulated figures represent the creative side in each of us. Naturally, the bride articulated figure wore a bit of my gown: a repurposed lavendar sari; Andrew’s figure wore tuxedo black.

    What fun! Did you make the anniversary cakes yourselves? I grew up as the designated cake-decorator in my family, making cakes for all birthdays, and even an enormous, multi-tiered 25th anniversary cake for my parents. (Never again — that was a lot of work!)

    Your wedding cake is really phenomenal. I love the elegant way she incorporated your mutual loves. And the mushrooms on the year 5 cake are making my mouth water!

      Thanks Melissa! No, we didn’t make the cakes ourselves, we returned to the woman who originally made our cake to continue the ongoing celebration.

      25-tiered cake? Geez, no thanks. I love baking cakes, but 2-tiered is as far as I go with that! ;D
