It's DONE at LAST!
This is my mom & dad's 50th Anniversary cake. It's finally done! Isn't it cute to have an anniversary on Valentine's Day? We are celebrating tomorrow because the restaurants are so crowded today.
My 12-year-old daughter Sarah picked the colors, but they are fitting because it's a Valentine's Day anniversary. And, I admit, I didn't have metallic gold food coloring. :)
See all the white conversation hearts in the pink flowers? Notice that they are turned so you can't read the printing? That's because out of 2 boxes of hearts, there were very few in white and most said things like, "Hot Mama." Well, maybe not that steamy, but you get the idea, not for your mom's 50th anniversary cake. :)
I worked on this thing ALL DAY off and on. I baked THREE cakes and made SIX pounds of icing! I loved it! :)
The bottom layer has a homemade apple filling. I can't wait to try it! I've never made a filling for a cake before. But, the leftovers in the pan sure were tasty! :)
I just hope mom and dad like it! It's very very VERY pink, after all. :) It's going to have to stay that way because I can't think of anything to make it more manly.
