A Wedding Cake with a Fun Surprise

A classically beautiful wedding cake,  Simple but actually intricate.

But we want a little fun too.  So in lieu of a grooms cake we made a little Scooby Doo Tribute peeking out of the side of the cake!

So I had a bit of a learning moment on this delivery.  I didn’t ask enough specifics about the reception area, while it was at a restaurant it was actually on the outdoor patio…in June..It was 80 degrees in the shade.  It took some doing, a few discussions with the wedding people and the florist, that “No it’s not ice cream but it will still melt in 80 Degrees”  All in all it was fine, the humidity gave it a little shine, but it could not sit out for the entire reception.  Lesson learned!
