Guys, this cake is super special, for several reasons.
1) ...was specifically requested and made for a friend who lives in Arizona.
2)...is a personalized wedding cutting cake.
3)...was matched to the colors and (kind of) flower style of the actual wedding...I mean...freaking BILLY BALLS!
4)...was FLOWN ALLLLLL THE WAY TO ARIZONA IN ONE PIECE!
5) ...was successfully enjoyed by the bride and groom themselves (who are currently honeymooning in Seattle, btw~)!!!
I am sincere when I say that all the cakes I make for people are very special to me - I LIVE for serving others through my cakes - and I feel like this specific cake goes down in the books as one of the most special because I was actually able to share what I do with people who live hundreds of miles away in my home state. It was a cake that traveled - made in Seattle, enjoyed in Arizona!
I still don't think I can articulate how proud I am of the thought and effort behind this cake. It seems a little silly when I think about it from an outside perspective, but I love the fact that I was actually able to transport this cake (with a little help, of course~). It's like sending a little piece of Seattle me to Arizona me.
Ugh. My heart.
Congrat to the newly weds! May Jesus bless the crap out of your marriage!
