A sweet proposal

For our avid Facebook followers (and if you don't follow us on Facebook, why not???) you already know that we had a very unique opportunity this past week to help a couple take the next step in their relationship. Allow me to share with you the story:

A few months back, we got a request from a young lady named Heather to make a small birthday cake for her boyfriend. She just wanted a simple cake that looked like a present so that he could have something a little bit special on his birthday. Well, the birthday boy, Delbert, loved the cake, as did Heather. When the time came for Heather's birthday, Delbert wanted to return the favor. He, however, decided to take it one step further.

Delbert asked us to make a cake in the shape of a diamond ring so that he could use the cake to propose to Heather!! We were, of course, very excited to be asked to be a part of such a special moment. We made a HUGE diamond ring, complete with a little sparkle in the diamond. We even made sure to check whether or not the ring should be white gold or yellow gold.

We had to keep this agonizing secret for 2 whole weeks prior to his picking up the cake! Delbert made sure that this would be a total surprise for Heather and we even made sure to use extra tape on the lid so that she couldn't peek. Delbert very graciously gave us a heads up after the party to let us know that she said "Yes!".

We are extremely happy for Delbert and Heather as they embark on their new life together and we were thrilled that we could be a part of such an important memory. Congratulations guys!!!
