Sherman-McKloskey, Park Tavern, 11/22/8
We had to wait a few minutes while the photographer took pictures of the Groom and his men at the entrance of Park Tavern ... the photographer told Nick (the groom) to step forward and had the groomsmen just look toward Nick ... well, this got all the guys making all sorts of comments about Nick's bald spot .... it was very funny and should be a cute picture. When the picture was taken, the boys moved aside so that Clay and I could start bringing in the cake ... Nick greeted me with a hug and I told him that "God only made few perfect heads .. the rest he put hair on." He wholeheartedly agreed.
Wendy and Nick came to see me a couple of times. I had to convince Wendy that I could design in "color" ... using colored icing .... I can't blame her, she had a point .... 99% of my cakes are done in white with white designs. I truly feel that when Wendy saw her cake ... finished ... it was at that point, she was convinced. As I've said before, I can't pick favorites (cakes), but this one was my pick of the weekend ..... I loved the color, and the design. Thanks Julie Coffin of Unique Floral Expressions for that incredible topper.
