Hello Fritz Pastry Buddies!
So just a few days ago, we had the chance to do a special catering service to a wedding. You may be thinking of a formal celebration with all white decors. To tell you, we assumed the same thing that’s why we were quite surprised when all the orders that came in were accompanied by odd requests.
FYI, we already catered for parties that came with unconventional theme previously, and we still do from time to time and on various occasions. We make customized cakes for bridal showers and stag parties, Halloween parties, children’s themed birthday celebrations and the likes. However, for wedding cakes, it was the first time we encountered such a theme.
We are tasked to do an ET movie themed cake. Odd, isn’t it? But it was fun nonetheless. The cake was supposed to look like an outer space kind of thing. We need to abide by the black and blue colors, so we did. Another request is to have everything edible, starting from the inside up to the designs we are going to incorporate into it. Even the statuettes should be eatable and should take up the image of two astronauts. The story behind this is that the couple is an ET enthusiast. It brought them together, so they want it to be the center of everything.
The wedding cake itself was 9-tiered. It symbolized every planet in the solar system and was arranged systematically in a spiral way that one could compare to a spiral staircase. We put as many details as we can in it, including some moons, the colors, what it looks like from internet photos and the likes. We create a spaceship-like launching pad at the EARTH’s tier and put the miniature statue of the couple in front. It took us several hours of continuous labor to finish it, and when we did, we never have felt more fulfilled.
The challenge now is the transportation. Good thing we have just the right service vehicle for this. We have a delivery van that is well insulated and in perfect condition as ensured by the best automotive repair service provider in Phoenix. Of course such cakes are disassembled when we deliver it. The assembly is made during the venue. The tricky part is just for the every part to not get tussled along the way
The wedding party is a bomb itself. It was magical and created for that momentous event. Because of the ET theme, they achieved a futuristically themed wedding. Just the venue itself looked like a humungous spaceship in black and purple. Even the suit of the groom is in the same color. The bride instead of the traditional white was dressed in silver with purple details. But we are flattered that the center of attention which invited the crowd is the fruit of our labor. It was an experience working with John and Michelle Smith!
