On the 17th of January, 2016, my husband’s Aunt and Uncle celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary!
They’ve always been my cake testers, and have specifically asked if I could provide a cake for their anniversary. Aunt Rita said it would be a small gathering, and when I asked her how many people, she said 20! Obviously small means different to different people!
I’ve decided to go all out, with a 2-tier cake. 12″ bottom + 7″ top, vanilla chiffon cake with Tahitian vanilla chantilly cream, of course I went with a gold theme! They requested this vanilla chiffon cake as Aunty absolutely loved her birthday cake that I made for her a few months ago, and wanted one just the same.
They hosted a lunch with their bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls and page boy, and of course relatives who managed to fly to Wellington to help celebrate this unique occasion.
This cake was dedicated to Uncle Geoff and Aunty Rita, may you continue to cherish each other, and we are Looking forward to your 60th!
Friends of ours got in touch a while back for their mother Pauline’s birthday. Having had my dessert at their daughter’s wedding, she asked for a 9 inch chocolate cake, and her favourite colours are red and pink.
She didn’t want anything too fancy, but she liked simple flowers, so here it is!
The cake was filled with vanilla buttercream, and it was enjoyed among friends and family, just like a birthday should!
I was doing my grocery shopping when my phone rang. I was quite surprised as the caller was from Australia, but answered it anyway. Turned out this woman found me online and as her mother lives in Wellington and was turning 90, she was hoping to order a floral cake with matching cupcakes to celebrate, and she won’t be arriving in Wellington until the night before.
As her mother and her father are of old age, I delivered the cakes to their residence the night before their celebration.
She asked for a plain vanilla cake done in a floral style, “With lots of light pink flowers, something suitable for a 90-year-old lady”, so I played around a little with pink, and she did say I can add other colours other than pink, and came up with this.
They were pretty happy when the received the cakes, so just waiting to hear back from them 🙂
