Our 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.
