Anniversary Cake

On August 1, 2009, Erik and I made the trek out to Texarkana to see our friends Jon and Kim tie the knot.

Remember the quilt I made them?

Anyway, a year has gone by, and much to their dismay, the top tier of their wedding cake did not survive.

Lovely, cake, no?

So Jon asked me to secretly make another tier to match the original to surprise Kim on their big day.  Pineapple filling and all!  I even had silver ribbon already in my stash!  See, a stash is a good thing!  I  encouraged Jon to get some fresh hydrangeas from the grocery store to make it even more special. It would also cover up some of the wonkiness on the top  ; )

Happy Anniversary, guys!

(in light of my fitness commitment, I would like to add the disclaimer that I only had a few bites of "leftovers" and very minimal icing - I gained quite a few pounds during my cake making days - yikes)

It's a beautiful cake! How sweet of him to ask you to recreate the original.
