My Birder Groom's Cake


So, in case you missed it, Beth and I got married on September 26! Beth got me a wonderful wedding gift in the form of this custom-made groom's cake. Check out some close-ups below. Our friends Bianca and Steve made it and I think they did a stellar job considering they had never made a cake like this before. They had never even used fondant. Very impressive! It's a pretty good rendition of me with my trusty Yankees hat (which seems to have shrunk) and my binoculars (you can't see them well in the pic, they're on the left of the pic). I love it. It's sitting in our freezer now. We didn't actually take a knife and fork to it... yet.

I was wondering when either of you would get around to sharing some pics!

Neat cake, but what are you saving it for?

(I think I remember saving a piece of ur wedding cake in the freezer for eating on our first anniversary, but...)

Laura,

Well, we intended to eat some at the wedding, but we all forgot about it. It was on its own table off to the side. So, yeah, we're going to do the ol' 1st anniversary thing. Our real cake top didn't survive the day - long story. I forgot to mention that the cake is actually red velvet cake inside.

So what kind of bird is that exactly?

That cake is nice!

I think it's a "blue" bird.
