this is a picture of the original cake
and this is the copy for the party. The invite had a picture of them cutting the cake.
the 40th is the ruby anniversary, so we went with a red theme. Candles were NOT allowed at the place we rented so I found these flameless ones at Amazon. I set them on some red glass beads, just to add a little height.
of course I had to make some cookies!!
the flower arrangement for the buffet table
since the party was only for about 30 people, the ENTIRE bottom of the wedding cake was left over. I was responsible for dessert for Easter dinner...so...I scraped off the flowers, added that frosting to the top to have a smooth surface, and voila! An Easter Cake! J and C had fun helping with the jelly beans!
