.......... for a friend's son and his fiancée who live in Bournemouth. We've been friends since before he was even born and they called him Christopher after Chris :D my Chris was so proud :yes:

I wasn't expecting to be asked as I don't really make many cakes anymore, but I was really honoured when Chris phoned me and said "Auntie Wendy will you make my wedding cake" I blubbed yes and then had the phone taken away from me :lol:

We're going to go and see them in the summer and hopefully she will have some ideas what she wants, after all it's up to us girls to choose isn't it :) I will take up my photos of others I have made so she can see them as well.

I'm already panicking about how I will transport it up there in one piece and said we will have to travel at night if it's warm :lol:

All I've got to hope now is that my hands don't get any worse as making the flowers will be difficult. Once I know the colours and/or if she wants flowers and what type, I might start making them.

I'm really excited :happydance:

I know :lol: Chris and I will probably have fallen out by the time we get to Bournemouth :lol:

One of the last wedding cakes I made was in the shape of a church, it was enormous. I had to have a carry board made out of wood so that I could put the cake on there for transportation, it was four tiers of fruit cake piled on top of each other and then a clock tower made out of icing (this was separate though and safely packed with the flowers) it took two of us to carry the thing!!

I was leaning over the backseat telling Chris to slow down, watch the bumps, don't take the corners too fast - by the time we got to Kitley House, he was fed up and it's only about 15 mins away from us :lol: To make matters worse they had their evening reception in a different place so we had to transport it twice :lol: I can laugh now, but it was that cake that stopped me going professional - never again.

I'm hoping this cake will be able to just go in the boxes and then I can make it up at the venue :fingers:
