Wedding Cake and Other Goodies

The reason for the trip to see Texter and Gibbs was to deliver a small wedding cake.  They got married on the 2nd of February in the magistrates office.  Nothing fancy.  Just a couple of friends.

Anyway, to make a short story long, I recently discovered one of the guys I work with does these fantastic cakes and candies.  So I had him create a small ‘wedding’ cake, but also ordered a couple of belated-Valentine’s Day gifts for a couple of people.

I have to apologize up front for the picture of the cake.  In all the coming and going, I didn’t set up a really good picture.

wedding cake in box  This is the cake sitting in it’s box in the backseat of the car.  The cake itself was a two-layer cake so they could save the top layer.  Then each layer itself was two layers.  Yellow/chocolate marbled cake with wonderful icing.  The flowers were silk so she could save them.  It was simple and elegant and beautiful.  And most important—TASTY!

Then, the real reason I initially went to Mark was to have him make something for me as a belated Valentine’s Day gift for Savvy and Sharon (oh…and myself).

P2240002  This is something you really don’t want to eat because it is so pretty, but like the cake, too delicious not to.  The dogs are going to be walked a lot more over the next few weeks!
