Since, I began cake decorating many years ago, this is the 1st time I never met the bride. I received a call from the bride’s mom, requesting a meeting and I met with the parents. Her parents are as sweet as they come – kind, accommodating, understanding and appreciative and very humble.
It was a great honour to hear from the bride’s mom that she came to know of me ten years ago and thought one day when her daughter gets married, that I would be the one to create her cake. It was a great honour. Therefore, the bride was not in the picutre and I never met her.
Embroidery on the bottom tier was copied from her neckline. The only request the bride had was all flowers had to be pink – roses & hydrengeas. As her dreass had lots of bling I incorporated that into the design.
However, the day of the wedding, after setting up the cake as I was leaving the hotel, I bumped into the bride and her mom. Once again, bride’s mom was delighted to see me. That was the 1st time I got a glimpse of the bride. She was ever so beautiful and looked extremely elegant.
