Are men not into cakes? Apparently most men eat cakes, but they don’t seem to take much effort reaching out to cakes, especially if it comes to ordering customized cakes. Over the years, the number of male customers ordering my cakes could be counted by fingers. Why so?
So when recently Scott, a British gentleman rang me I had a great surprise. He wanted a special cake for his wife, Da as their second anniversary present. She is a LV bag fanatic and adores anything blue and purple. I promised him (and myself) that I would do my best to craft her surprise bag along with her fancy Anemone flowers.
I had to admit that this bag reminded me of the scenes in the movie “The Vow”, the story about the power of love and the possibility of falling in love with the same person all over again despite a memory loss. The most touchy moment was when Paige, played by my favorite artist Rachel Williams declaring her wedding vow.
“I vow to love you love life
To always hold you in tenderness
And to have patience that love demands
To speak when words are needed
And to share the silence when they are not
To agree to disagree on red velvet cake
And to live within the warmth of your heart
And always call it home”
And her husband, Leo played by the latest Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum replied...
“I vow to fiercely love you
In all your forms, now and forever
I promise to never forget that this is a once-in-a-lifetime love
And to always know in the deepest part of my soul
That no matter what challenges might carry us apart
That we’ll always find the way back to each other”.
And suddenly, my room is completely filled with the air of love!
Scott and Da, Happy Anniversary!
Wish you both all the greatest joy in love and life!
