My Fire Chief contacted me a few weeks ago asking if I was interested in making a wedding cake for friends of his son. He said is would be easy and for a small ceremony as the couple was on a tight budget. He was going to give them the wedding cake as a gift and they had no idea it was being done. Chief knew that I had done one other wedding cake for Michael and Jamie, since he attended the wedding and ate some of it. So I said sure, no problem. He said the bride didn't really have any requests other than she wanted a Blue Velvet cake decorated in primarily turquoise, with purple and off white accents, the colors of their wedding. Ok, I can deal with that. Then he hit me with it. Oh yeah, he says, they want it 20's Flapper Style. Wait.......what? I was lost, I had no idea what that meant. So I turned to the trusty internet for guidance and soon understood what 20's Flapper Style was. I began planning the cake and as usual I did not have a real good idea of what I wanted it to look like until the day before the wedding. So after running all around town looking for what I needed, I put together what I think is my best cake to date. Chief called me that night and said that the bride and groom were totally suprised by it and in fact the bride started crying when she saw it. Mission accomplished!
