We’ve blogged about grooms cakes before, but this one is special for all you dog lovers out there! ….and baseball lovers! A few months ago, we were asked to do a grooms cake for a couple with an adorable dog, and a huge love of the Yankees. The bride and groom requested that their grooms cake represent both of their loves, so they came up with the idea of the dog wearing the jersey. The end result? See for yourself!
Gothic Groom’s Cake! September 14, 2010
When I sat down to meet with this adorable couple, they expressed to me that their wedding would be a bit different. They wanted a traditional cake with a touch of darkness, so they chose an elegant design with black and red accents…but as beautiful as that was, the real surprise was the groom’s cake.
The groom looked at me dead seriously and said, “I want a skull.” We all had a good laugh and then he said, “but seriously…”. I was so excited! I knew we could do it and I was excited to bring the challenge back to the bakery girls. Over the weekend, it came “to life”…
Below you can see the process. Courtney made the jaw piece first, then the face portion of the skull. The cake was the inside and the back portion of the skull and then the other parts got pieced together on top of it. Ta da!
