When my sister-in-law and my now, brother-in-law finally settled on a “city (Buffalo, NY to be precise) in a blizzard” theme, for their wedding cake, that was both cool AND elegant at the same time, I have to admit… I had anxiety.
If I lack all else, I usually at least have ONE thing going for me… I can see, in my head, most of the designs I end up going with, like, WEEKS ahead of time. It’s not often that I am stumped on what I want to create.
This one had me up late at night, trying to explain to Thomas why I had a constant look of consternation on my face.
I could not see it.
My man stepped up to the plate. Thomas opened up the laptop, and GOT.TO.WORK. He Googled. He presented all SORTS of ideas to me. He was unaffected by my sullen, sour face. (Yes… I was having a mini, Pinkalicious-type fit. I know, right? Can you believe it? I’m usually such a sweet little angel. 😉 )
And he finally got my creative juices flowin’.
And then I got all KINDS of excited. (That guy knows just how to work me, I tell you.)
As he settled under the covers with a satisfied, smug little smile on his face, I drifted off to sleep… with visions of blowing snow and gray scaled cities swirling through my head. (Um, that will certainly be the ONLY time visions of that sort will send me off peacefully into oblivion. I guarantee it. )
(“Loooove…caaan…builllld…aaaa…briiiiidge”………..or a black and white city in a bliiiiiiizard.) *snort*
How to build beautiful cake tiers, support and stack them, and how to create the roses, anemones and the city skyline silhouettes,
OH! And at the last minute (AFTER I took my finished photos, of course, grrr…) I added the snowplow. It was a special request from the groom. Most people thought it was a fun addition, having no clue of the inside joke that prompted the request. Of which I am not allowed to speak.
‘Cause I’d get killed.
So I’ll just leave you guessing. 😉
