Until recently, I haven’t thought much about wedding cake. But my newest release A Groom for Mama, started me on the search for blog topics, and since the cover has a wedding cake on it, I thought the history of wedding cakes would be a great idea.
Today’s wedding cakes can look like anything and be made of any flavor. The cake shown at the top of this blog was from the wedding of the daughter of a dear friend of mine. They chose cupcakes because the groom was lactose intolerant and he didn’t want to impose his limitations on their guests. The small cake at the front of the table was the one they cut and ate. If you know someone getting married, why not suggest they think outside the box. It could be fun and beautiful.
What the most unusual wedding cake you've seen?
The last thing corporate-climbing Allison wants is a husband. Furious with Mama’s meddling, and a bit more interested in Jack than she wants to admit, Allison agrees to the scheme as long as Mama promises to search for a cure for her terminal illness.
A cross-country trip from Nevada to Ohio ensues, with a string of disastrous dates along the way, as the trio hunts for treatment and A Groom For Mama.
