Weekly Photo Challenge: (Extra)ordinary

Lovely fall wedding cake

It’s not a wedding without wedding cake, but we’re always amazed at the extraordinary feat it must be to create an elaborate, elegant, showy-yet-tasty after-dinner creation.  At my niece’s wedding this past weekend in Magnolia, Texas, the bride’s cake drew attention. And well it should.  It had it all:  layers of almond cake with buttercream frosting (both smooth and embellished), an elegant monogram, fresh fall flowers, and a stately cross at the top.  Extraordinary in and of itself.

Groom's cake -- a six-foot deer!

But much of the conversation related to this sweet ending centered on the groom’s cake. Yes, it really was a six-foot deer!  And an edible one at that.  With a red velvet cake interior and chocolate buttercream frosting body, this was one deer even the crew of Duck Dynasty (the groom’s favorite show) would find extraordinary!

Best of all? They were both soooooo good.
