.. and i still can't help but to tell everyone I meet about this most amazingly fun Indian fairytale wedding I delivered my cake to!
The bride and groom were both of mixed culture backgrounds but both shared Indian roots in common. The beautiful bride had carefully conceptualized her fun elephant themed party with vivid colours and fun ideas! It was just Out of THIS wORLD! *jumps around in excitement*
I walked in almost speechless... not knowing where to begin swooning or prancing about in celebration and joy! From the moment my trusty Delectable delivery car pulled up to the drive way; my eyes were drawn to the incredibly colourful streamers and lanterns adorning this perfectly manicured garden. I literally pounced out of my car (forgetting the cake inside of it) and ran towards the walkway to take a peek from up close. It was like WOW! the festive colours; the traditional touches and the unique mix of flowers.... just every little detail the couple, their planners; and decorators had done was sending me spinning around in circles trying to absorb all of it. Funny thing is.. they hadn't even completed their masterpiece assemblage!! *laughs* they had 2 hours to finish up the decor before the engagement party guests arrived. 4 steps up the oil lamp adorned garden steps; i spot an adorable little elephant friend on my right. Wait a minute; it isn't little! it's huge!!! and Oh mY! It's made of a montage of tiny flowers!!! That just absolutely took the cake!
I was tempted indeed to touch it on the trunk...
....but then i thought about the inconsiderate few who strut into my Delectable store; touching away at the cakes and destroying them with their fingers. I quickly withdrew my itchy fingers.. NO! no touching... too pretty! *smiles*The charming couple were incredibly excited to see what the cake would turn out to look like the day before; and I can see why! The place is picture perfect!
But the girls reassured them to fret not! "You've got Su from Delectable!"
and she's no heartbreaker!~ *wink* haha
After a good oohhh ahh run about the place; I finally found our busy wedding planner who was glad to see I had made it fuss free and on time. I was a little afraid initially my pink, orange, gold and silver cake might be a little out of place with it's vibrant colours.. but when I saw the place; I was convinced... my 2 little elephant masterpieces are going to fit right in! We worked out a quick stand and placed the modest 3 tiered cake in the center of it.
That's when it hit me.
This is outdoors..
There is a pool.....
It had just rained a little drizzle...
My poor baby is going to have to sit here for 5 hours at least... was it going to be okay?!
and that's when i saw a little crack begin to form.
I began freaking out in my mind in silence! >.<
I had to maintain my professionalism and resolve this in calm...
Several sugar pieces from the cake were already beginning to fall off a little and I re-glued them on and prayed they'd stay stubborn for me for just awhile more!
My heart was heavy when I had to finally step away and allow it to stand alone. My job here is done; the wedding planners; decorators and I all begin whispering hopeful "It's going to be okay"-s in our minds. *Sigh*
The cake cutting ceremony was still a ways worth; but i'm sure eventually the deliciousness of it all will blow everyone away! The cake had decadently matching indian themed flavours like ginger; vanilla and coconut buttercream throughout! There was a full tier of just chocolate on chocolate as well! MmmMmm.... yumm-ness!
I'll wait till tomorrow before I give the couple a call to see how it all went. I bet they must be really exhausted today. I'm sure the party was more than a blast!
I told dad on the way out that I might have to marry an Indian man so I can have an Indian wedding just like this one! *giggle*
