Compass Wedding Cake
We've said it before. We LOVE our clients and the awesome ideas they bring to us every day. It keeps our creative juices flowing and gives them a special cake they will remember for years to come. Rick and I were excited about this cake since we received the order. I doubt there was a single person at Allison and Evan's wedding who will not remember their sculpted compass wedding cake years from now. Their story is a sweet one. Allison resides in Memphis, Tennessee, and Evan is in the military stationed in Japan. They met halfway, in Hawaii in October to get married. He is a navigator in the Air Force and she, an Air Traffic Controller. They both have a love of aviation and wanted that prominently displayed in their cake. For their wedding cake, they wanted a compass with a map that incorporated some of the places they have lived together. Rick sculpted their compass out of cake and handpainted the map below it. The compass was so realistic, I thought it might navigate us to the reception site. We had a wedding right before theirs but the timing worked out beautifully because we had a chance to meet Allison and Evan, who we only had contact with via email and phone. They were thrilled with their cake and it immediately drew a crowd around it.
Congratulations to Allison and Evan on their marriage. We hope this is the start of many adventures together!
