Friends and Family Tree

One of my daughters best friends from about four years old to middle school, was Krissy.  They were like two peas in a pod.  They lost touch after middle school for a while, but I ran into Krissy’s mom about three years ago at a burger joint.  We exchanged phone numbers and became Facebook friends. 

A few months ago, she told me Krissy was getting married.  Where has time gone?  My little girl is married and now her friend was getting married.  Seems like only yesterday they were hiding under Krissy’s family pool table building a “fort” and playing with Barbie’s 🙂

Krissy’s mom had seen a few of our cakes on Facebook, so she asked if it was possible for us to do the wedding cake.  We were pretty excited about that.  Krissy had a picture she wanted her cake to look like.  We got a picture of the bridesmaid dress and tried to get the color as close to that as possible.  To me, the leaves were the most fun to make.  Each one is hand shaped, cut from gum paste and colored.  Then, we added a shimmer to each leaf.  It was a challenge, but a very enjoyable one.  The cake topper is also handcrafted from gumpaste.

We stemmed the cake and placed the leaves on it when we got to the venue.

The wedding was held at a marina, overlooking the water…it was a beautiful setting for a wedding.  We over heard one of the young caterers say, “The guy getting married today is a very lucky man; she’s beautiful.”  And she is.  We wish the bride and groom many years of happiness and thank you for letting us be a part of your very special day.
