The Cake

Our new son-in-law is Welsh!
So for the wedding cake, Ashley surprised him with a Welsh flag on top of the cake.

I found the Welsh National Tartan ribbon online and had it wrapped around all three layers, which sat angled on top of each other. Maria the baker did a fabulous job with the Welsh flag, which wasn't an easy task.
The cake itself was the groom's favorite. White cake with strawberry filling and marzipan frosting!

Look how happy it made him, and his father, who came all the way from Wales when they saw it for the first time.

The top layer ended up in my refrigerator. No one had the heart to cut into it!
Traditionally, it is frozen anyway and eaten by the newlyweds on their one year anniversary.

Pin It!
