All Because Two People Fell in Love

Back in July, my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.  That is an amazing feat in this day and age.  All you hear now days is how people are divorcing.  I am glad I have such a great example in my parents and other family members for that matter.  My grandparents were married for 53 years, and my aunt and uncle have been married for 47 years.  All truly great examples of what love and hard work look like.

For my parent's anniversary we had a little surprise party with just family.  I made a cake that kind of mimicked their wedding cake.  I think everyone liked it.

Don't look too closely at the ruffles or borders.  This was my first cake to do a lot of borders.  It's how it taste that counts, right? The top picture is after it was taken 2 hours to my parents house so there's a little wear and tear.

The cake did look pretty good before I had to take it on it's long journey.
