I absolutely love weddings. So when I find out that couples I know are ‘sealing the deal’, sometimes I am more excited than they are. Now, it’s not just from a business perspective (I’ve never professed to ‘specialise in wedding cakes’), but weddings are joyful occasions.
I’ll let you into a little secret…If I am invited to a wedding, or if I happen to know of a couple getting married, it’s always a delight for me to buy them a gift from their gift list. To bless the couple even more, I buy them a gift ‘under cover’ (the gift comes as a gift from my daughters, with a cake related message). I look for a small item on the gift list that is cake related:
- Baking trays
- Mixing bows
Basically, I look for any item that would be useful in a kitchen, when baking. I found this card from a couple we secretly bought a gift.
“Dear Jemimah and Phoebe,
Thank you so much or your incredibly generous and kind wedding gift. We will now be making lots of cakes, but I don’t think they will be as nice as your Mum’s – with much love.” – Tom and Sarah
