Sarah and Adam contacted us for an anniversary cake, just as they promised they would after we made their wedding cake, Two Sides to Every (Love) Story. But they had more great news to share as they are now expecting their first child! (We’re so excited for you both!) Sarah wanted just a small cake for the two of them to enjoy, and requested that the flavour be one of the flavours from their wedding cake, so she went with the Vanilla Bean pound cake with Vanilla Bean buttercream and Salted Caramel. One of our favourite combinations!
When it came to the outside of the cake, she did ask that it be somewhat reminiscent of their wedding cake, saying that she even still had some of the gum paste flowers that we had made for their wedding cake! But instead of just making a mini of their wedding cake, I asked them if we could surprise them with the decoration on this cake. She agreed. Yay!
We decided to incorporate their latest exciting news, but also have their wedding cake in there, too. So we created The Next Chapter of their love story, and stayed true to the two-sided cake. One side we modelled after their wedding cake, but added pink roses and blue hydrangea blossoms to represent their future bundle of joy. The other side also reflected their wedding cake, in a sense. Music is a big part of Adam and Sarah’s life, and soon they will become pros at a new type of song- the lullaby. So we did white-on-white piping, but incorporated Rock-a-bye Baby, along with whimsical music notes, and topped off that side of the cake with fondant baby booties. (So stinkin’ cute!)
Happy anniversary and congratulations, Adam and Sarah!
We received this email the next day:
We LOVED the cake! It was so sweet and delicious, we’ve come to expect no less! Thank you so much for accommodating us at such a busy time, I really appreciate it. I especially loved the baby touches, I will definitely be saving those baby booties.
Thanks again and have a great week camping!!
Sarah & Adam
