The Purest Love Wedding Cake

by Angel Rushing
(Clarkesville, GA USA)


When I was first asked to make this wedding cake I had no idea the impact that it would have on my own life. I knew from being around these two young people at church that they were different from others their age but I had no idea how committed they were until the actual wedding.

First Kiss


The young man who was 21 had been called to preach at the age of around 18 I believe. I had heard them talking about saving their first kiss for their wedding day which I thought was commendable but then as the preacher began the ceremony he brought to our attention that as the bride's father led the bride down the aisle and placed his daughter's hand into the hand of the young groom that it was the first time that they had ever held hands. After a year of dating...never even held hands??

What a personal commitment on both their parts. The preacher then explained that as the groom and bride shared their first kiss that it would be a pure kiss because neither of their lips had ever kissed another.

Pure Love


As I saw the joy and love in both of their eyes as they became man and wife that day I couldn't help but be moved to tears. I left that day knowing that the white wedding cake that I had made was a very rare cake indeed and truly a symbol of the purest love, the way that God intended it.

I understood that in today's society this type of love may be ridiculed or even teasingly labeled as "not normal"...but if the world could just see the overwhelming love and respect for each other and God that were shining in their eyes everyone would want to experience that.

Life Changing Wedding Cake


The best part of this story is that as I witnessed this Holy event my 10 year old daughter looked up at me and said, "Mom, I want to save my first kiss for my husband and I hope it's a missionary because I want 6 kids and you know missionaries have lots of children". I couldn't help but chuckle a little but in my heart I hoped she could one day experience that and miss out on a lot of the heartaches that I and her Daddy had experienced in our life.

I left that day with a new appreciation for marriage, a deeper love for my husband, and a new commitment to my children to do everything I can to prepare their hearts for the mate that God has chosen for them. Who would have thought that making a wedding cake would be such a life changing event.

Pure Love!
by: Andrea Metrick

Angel makes the most beautiful and delicious cakes!
Everyone has a story and an idea behind why and what they want in their cake. If you go to a big bakery or a grocery store bakery you don't get the same love and passion you get with Angel Cakes. She puts her heart in each beautiful creation.
This is a wonderful story of pure love that is so rarely seen any more. Good luck to this precious couple as they embark on their marriage.
And to Angel another beautiful cake! Great job!

Great Talent
by: Cathy

Beautiful story and Beautiful cake. Angel makes the most beautiful cakes!! She failed to tell in her story that she has never taken any kind of cake decorating class and she make her own fondant from scratch and it actually tastes good. I've seen where people have posted on facebook that it's the best cake they've ever eaten. Her sculptured cakes are amazing and look like real animals or whatever she sculpts. This is one talented young lady.

I had heard about the bride and groom but I had no idea that you were the one that made their cake. What an honor for you to have...a beautiful cake for a beautiful couple. Their story really is an inspiration to us all, even those of us who have already married...
Your cake is beautiful and the story made it even more beautiful...

Building the Cake
by: Angel

I guess I should have explained the cake a little more for those interested but the story was just so heartfelt that I forgot. The bride gave me 2 pictures and wanted to combine the 2 looks. Yes, I have never taken a class just learned from watching tv and youtube videos.

Each tier was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant (I learned to make it from a youtube video..very easy to do and only 3 ingredients). 2 tiers had scroll work piped on and the 3 tier had a quilted pattern pressed into the side and decorated with little beads of rolled fondant. I used "fat boba straws" for supports, first time trying this after seeing several youtube bakers using them and I will never use anything else..they were awesome, cheap, sturdy and easy to cut. Fresh flowers were then used to finish the cake. If anyone has any questions on making the cake I would be happy to answer them.
