Wedding anniversary cake spanning 50 years

irenes-cake

Irene had kept the floral topper from her original wedding cake. It was carefully packed in a box and had survived unscathed for 50 years. Irene planned a 50th anniversary party but wanted a second cake to share with her friends at church the following day so we settled on this two tier fruit cake. I made sugar flowers which I hope reflect those in the vintage topper and this was the result. Very many congratulations Irene.
