(New Vows)My daughter had a very small wedding at the courthouse a year ago with just a few witnesses. It was nice, but because she didn’t have all those near and dear to her present, she wanted to renew her vows on her one year anniversary and invite all those that she would have liked to have shared that special day with. So, we set out looking for that perfect location. We found a lovely spot at a local park, with a nice pond and a fountain as a backdrop, and a fenced wooden “patio” out over the water. There was a nice walkway to use as her “aisle” to walk down with her daddy. Then we started talking about all the other details, including her cake. Her colors were avocado green and chocolate-brown – and that’s the colors she wanted on her cake. She gave me free rein with it only she had one provision…she wanted the layers square and offset. I figured that should be easy since I’m not a perfect person, anyway 🙂
The top two layers were WASC and the bottom layer was chocolate with Oreo cookies and cream filling.
She was a beautiful “bride” who loved her green and brown, scrolled, offset, square cake and I am the mommy who loves her 🙂

I’ve never had free reign to put anything on a cake I wanted, unless, of course, the cake was requested BY me :-). A friend asked me to bake a cake for her sweet little momma’s 79th birthday. Her only stipulations were 1) It had to be strawberry flavored and 2) Her mom’s not real frilly. So, I experimented. I made it simple, yet colorful…something MY mom would like. I also took the opportunity to practice my scrolling. I scrolled in the same color as the cake, but only on the sides, so it wouldn’t be too “frilly”. I put some forget-me-nots made out of royal icing on it, but those don’t qualify as “frilly”, do they? Nah, I didn’t think so either. I just got a note from my friend that said her mom loved her cake, so I guess we accomplished our mission.
