Ants on a log
I knew I'd like Chris and Megan as soon as they told me their wedding colors. Not necessarily because I'm an enormous fan of "Raisin"(a dark, purplish brown) and "Celery" green, but because they added "If we add peanut butter, we'll have Ants on a Log!"
Come to think of it, it must have subliminally affected my designs, because I drew them a cake in the same formation of the "log" cake that we made for Christopher and Santhi (a few posts down from this). While I didn't have any pictures to show them (Christopher and Santhi hadn't been married yet) I did sketch them up a little thumbnail of the layout.
They loved it as much as I did, so we went with that layout, their delicious color scheme, and added in ferns and frosting fiddle-heads to complete the look.
One minor detail...they don't make cake stands in that shape. So we enlisted "Magic Phil" to make us a beautiful oak stand in the shape of a "ladybug". I think the wood came from my sister in law's old dining room table. I love how that man recycles!
