I have an order for a 2nd anniversary cake and I have NO IDEA what to do. The husband is trying to surprise his wife. He is ummm.....kinda goofy! (I know them personally ) He first said he was thinking of putting ON THE CAKE>>> "I know we've had our ups and downs, but there's no one else I would rather have ups and downs with"......YES THOSE WERE HIS EXACT WORDS!! I told him I didn't really like that idea!
As far as the flavor, he told me she loves funfetti cake. I said I can do that! Then he calls me later and says she likes the rainbow chunks icing. I didn't even know what that was and told him...."ummm, do you think I just go buy a box mix and decorate with canned frosting? THAT'S WHAT HE THOUGHT I WAS GONNA DO! LOL
Anyway, I am at a total loss. She is sweet as pie and I want this to be special for her. Do any of you have any ideas?
2nd Anniversary is kind of fun... you could get creative:
2nd anniv is represented by gifts of cotton and china, the gem is a garnet, the color is red and the flowers are cosmos.
You could go the route of a red fondant covered cake with two tiny little white cotton hotel-style robes adorning it along with a bouquet of cosmos.
Or, you could make your cake in the shape of a basket, fill it with "cotton" gardening gloves and a gumpaste packet of cosmos seeds along with a corny line to the affect of ..."watching our love grow..."
Or, you could make a cake into a table top and go with the "china" route in plates, etc.
Just a few thoughts...
