Richard, if you are reading this, close the explorer window!!!! I MEAN IT!!!!
I have been feeling really bad for my FH because there have been some ideas that he wanted to incorporate into the wedding that have been shot down. Now before you think 'what a terrible future wife, she isn't taking any of her FH's wishes into consideration.' I must tell you what some of the things he requested were:
- Ice sculptures to look like our two bulldogs, Buerly and Rooney (as cute as they are I don't think they really fit into the vision I had for a wedding of elegance and class). They are a very important part of our lives but are not well-behaved enough to be part of a wedding. :-(
- Fun-Fetti Wedding Cake- yes, he wanted the entire wedding cake to be Fun Fetti because it is his FAVORITE. My dad may have an issue with this since he is paying for the cake and his favorite flavor is chocolate....lol.
I am going to (hopefully) surprise my FH with a groom's cake made out of Fun-Fetti to look like our two English Bulldogs (see picture above of our cute dogs). I have an appointment with a bakery, called Amazing Cakes of Indy, today. They said they can make it and after seeing their cakes I believe it! I was afraid that my request for Fun-Fetti would be insulting and sound ridiculous but the lady I talked to said that they have had stranger requests so I didn't feel as bad!
The lady at Amazing Cakes of Indy also told me to bring in as many pictures of our bulldogs from every possible angle if I wanted a 3-dimensional cake (which I do). PS - do you know how hard it is to take pictures of wiggly dogs from every angle?!?
I am also going to meet with the bakery about our wedding cake. Hopefully I will be able to kill two birds with one stone! One of my bridesmaids used this bakery for her wedding cake and it was not only the best wedding cake I have ever tasted but also the best priced cake I have ever heard of! So, keep your fingers crossed! Hopefully I will have a lot of good news to report back to you on Wednesday.
Are you going to have a groom's cake? What kind of groom's cake are you going to have?
