You'd never have guessed. It's a Tetris wedding cake! How weird is that??? But it's so unique and fun and it was a real surprise for everyone who came to the wedding. And for people who knew the couple, they'd know straight away the "inside joke", you know? Because the groom is a real computer gadget person and actually, and he was the one who said his cake must have a geek element to it, and he thought of including Tetris since he likes the game.
So I got to work thinking about the game and decided it'll be interesting to have rectangular shaped holes carved into the sides of the cake for the spaces that weren't filled. Thanks to Carol's nifty Sculpey handiwork, we had ornaments in the shape and colour of actual teris block configurations that looked like they were falling into position.
But the Topper was the really fun part! We had this idea of making a tetris blocks topper that made up the couple's initials, J and C. It was a T, L, L and the inverted L that made up the topper. Carol was super. She thought of using magnets to make the pieces attachable and detachable!
When the cake was on display, it looked like the J and the C but after cutting the cake, the couple took apart the topper into their four individual blocks and fitted them onto the spaces of the cake I had planned for them.. And so the line was completed and the cake was to "disappear" (as in served up immediately)!
The couple were very "game" (pun intended), and the part when they were looking around the cake to fit the topper pieces into their cake was very animated and interesting for everyone to watch. The groom then proclaimed that this cake will go down in history because it's has to be cut side ways because the line will disappear.
Anyway. It was a truly rewarding cake and again, well worth the effort. Phew! I slept at 4:30 am saturday morning painting on the luster dust!!! It was like putting nail polish on many many many finger nails. But really, it was very rewarding and well worth the effort just to see the joy on the couple's faces. :O)
