I've been asked to do three separate cakes for a family gathering. One is for a recently engaged couple, the second is a wedding celebration cake, and the last is a 60th Anniversary cake. I really would like to do a design that sort of ties them all together (as they'll be displayed at the same party), but is unique to each couple's celebration. Would anyone have any thoughts they'd like to share?
If you use coordinating colors and decorations, such as red roses, that would be enough to tie the design together. All other elements could be specific to the individual celebration.
Too bad we can’t get into our pix as I have a couple of ideas I agree w/Sandra Also you can put them together on 1 board-pushed together in 3leaf clover fashion or push 2 together w/the 3rd centered on top
depending on the number of servings you could do three mini tier cakes --
oh whatever you do you've got a perfect storm of yesterday, today and forever -- play that up! yesterday for the already engaged -- today for the wedding -- and forever for the 60th
Some great ideas to consider. Thank you so much for your input ladies!
I like K8's take as it being like a timeline.... maybe a display that spirals up with a journey type theme. Beginning, middle, destination. Engagement at the bottom, then marriage, and 60th at the top.
Love those ideas! I’m also a big fan of using silhouettes of the couples..it’s a good way to separate the different time periods while staying cohesive.
Like, silhouette of person proposing to someone with a shiny sprinkle or something attached to hand..then silhouettes of a couple getting married (veil, bow tie? Facing each other holding hands?) and then a couple holding hands sitting on a park bench or something, maybe with the bench etched with their initials and a heart or the number 60?
@MerMadeBakedGoods this is exactly what I had in mind! :-)
I ran it past my client and she was receptive to the idea.
Woohoo!!! Post pics (if the site allows...) when you’re done!!!
