A Special Wedding Cake For A Cancer Survivor

A Pink and White Wedding Cake...

with a very special meaning

I got a call a few weeks ago from a relative who is a party planner. She was requesting a 50th Anniversary cake for a client. The next day she called me and asked me to make a cake for another event- her own wedding!

Celebrating Life

I was very excited to do this for her since she was going to celebrate 3 things at this event- Her wedding, Her birthday, and Her 10 years Cancer Free anniversary.

Roses and Ribbon

I asked her what she wanted for a design and she said-"just do whatever you think is appropriate and please add some pink roses." Well, I knew exactly what to do. I designed this cake and she and her husband were very happy with it.

I made a 3 tier, Dark Chocolate cake with Raspberry puree filling and buttercream icing. I added white fondant roses borders and lace made from a mold with pink gumpaste roses and for a final touch, added a pink Cancer Ribbon with a gumpaste rose.

When she got to the reception, the bride was wearing a white short dress with white lace overlay and a pink ribbon sash belt. Without even seeing the cake, her dress and cake nearly matched!

This made a very special occasion even better!

Beautiful Celebration of Life

Donna, Your design is so beautiful. I am always in awe of people who are dealing with cancer. You were completely in sync with what the bride had in her mind as the perfect wedding cake for her situation. It's a beautiful tribute to celebrate life. I hope the bride and groom have a long happy life together. Well done and thank you for telling your story here.
