From the beginning of our engagement, one of the things I was adamant about was making Mr. Sugar Cube’s and my wedding cake. As you could guess, I got the usual slew of responses—“OMG, seriously?! You’re crazy.” “I will not let you make your own wedding cake, even if I have to pay for it.” “I can’t let you do that.” “That’s not something you do yourself, make your own bouquet instead.” “You’re going to stress yourself out.” “You should be relaxing and enjoying your day.”
I was even more bound and determined after we decided to get married on Mr. Sugar Cube’s birthday, since I’ve made a cake for him on every one of his birthdays since we’ve been together. (Fun fact: I have not made a cake for either of our anniversaries—we decided to follow one of our traditions and have cupcakes and coffee to celebrate our first anniversary, and I was not in town for our second this past weekend. I did, however, make half a cake for our half-year anniversary!) I love to bake, especially for Mr. SC, even more especially on his birthday. It only made sense to me.
I wasn’t just planning to bake our wedding cake, though. Oh, no. I was planning on making cake for all of the wedding guests. Go big or go home.
