Michelle Bakes a cake!!!

Michelle baking a cake is not big news. She does it often. However, this summer we celebrated my Mom and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary.

Michelle decided to try and make a cake for the party that looked like their original wedding cake.

Here is the wedding photo she had to work from.

She started on Thursday baking the cakes, Friday, she iced the layers and decorated the edges. Saturday, we took the cakes to the party site and Michelle put the cake together.

She then decorated around each layer to hide the cardboard that the cake set on.

She set it up....

Layer by layer.

Until it was all put together and decorated.

Michelle then used fresh flowers on top as we didn't have a bride and groom cake topper like was on the original wedding cake.

Mom and Dad exchanged bites. Just like on their wedding day.

The top layer was a white almond cake with a raspberry filling. This was the middle layer, a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

The bottom layer was chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse filling. It was not the least bit healthy! No, I didn't have any. Our guests cleaned up every last bit of cake. There wasn't a piece left. I guess that means that it tasted as good as it looked.

Way to go Michelle!
