I’m throwing a big anniversary dinner for my parents 30th anniversary next month. I’ve been toying with the idea off and on about making their cake myself. It would be a really special touch if I could make it cute. It’s a month away so it’s getting to the point where I need to either find a nice cake place and order them a cake – or fully committ to making it myself.
There will be 40-50 people there, and I want the cake to have at least 2 tiers not a big rectangle cake.
Here’s the other thing. I’ve never baked a cake that wasn’t out of a box. So it may very well be quite an undertaking. And I don’t want fondant on the cake, because although fondant = pretty, fondant also = gross.
I want the cake to look fancy and cute and somehow have something representative of their 30 years together. I’m having a dinner party with some friends next weekend and I can practice my cake-making skills with them.
I will have to share my parent’s love story soon, but until then – any advice on the cake-making?
