Mrs. Judy Bagsby, wife of my seventh grade science teacher, called us a few weeks back in need of a cake for their 50th Anniversary. She wanted a tiered vanilla cake with buttercream to feed 100 and two sheet cakes to feed 25 people each.
We began by baking two 12″, two 9″ and two 6″ round cakes for the main tiered cake and two 10″ square cakes for the sheet cakes. We covered all cakes in ivory tinted buttercream and then stacked the main cakes. The bottom and top tiers were adorned with a gold ribbon and a smaller ivory with gold trim ribbon in the middle. The middle tier was covered in buttercream rosettes. A gold bow was made and an antique broach added to the center for decor. The main cake was completed as the 50th topper was placed. The sheet cakes were covered with buttercream rosettes to match the middle tier and ribbon and bows were added for decor to pull the design together.
Congrats, Mr. & Mrs. Bagsby! 50 years is an amazing accomplishment that everyone should strive to celebrate. We are honored to have been able to create this cake for such a special day and an even more special couple.
