Last week two dear friends Angela and Carlo were married, and yesterday we had a celebration among friends. Angela is Australian like me, she too lives in L’Aquila. Carlo is from Florence and has moved to L’Aquila.
Cathy is yet another Australian who lives in Sulmona. She is a wonderful cook went to great lengths to prepare a banquet for us all including a wedding cake.
With very little planning and co-ordination between the two of us Cathy and I combined our talents and made the unveiling of the cake cause for much laughter.
Cathy made a delicious three-tiered wedding cake and it was my job to come up with the bride and groom to decorate the top of the cake: a personalized cake topper.
Knowing boht Angela and Carlo there was no need for photos or descriptions: it was going to be a simple topper, yet we wanted it to be cheerful and fun so I got wo rok with my fantasy to interpret them …
It was flabbergasting to see how there had obviously been real telephathy going on between us….the colours …the size of the top tier…PERFECTION!
Proof that two heads are better than one!!! (and even better when they think alike).
This was the cake:
…and this is a close-up of the cake-topper:
…and the real Mr and Mrs Ricci!
What was funny too was that the cake characters really did look like the bride and groom!
It was lots of fun!
