Earlier this month I had the pleasure of making a 60th wedding anniversary cake for the cutest couple from the UK. 60 years!! What an accomplishment! They were here in the states visiting with their son and daughter-in-law, who threw them a celebration party to commemorate this milestone in their lives.
The bottom tier of the cake was vanilla cake with almond buttercream. The top of the cake was a carrot cake with almond buttercream. The carrot cake was the closest I could get to the fruit cake they had on their wedding day. The cake was decorated with white buttercream roses along with silver foil leaves and silver gumpaste horseshoes, all of which were on their original cake. It was so much fun making this cake for this very special couple. I wish them many more years of happiness together!
