For my in-law's 30th wedding anniversary which we celebrated last weekend, we created a cake in their honour- or as mama Canning exclaimed, "It's our life in a cake!" Each tier features photos of times in their life: their wedding, their kids, and their growing number of grandkids. (Look close, their photos are on each tier!)
This was my first attempt at a) baking a cake b) using fondant icing and c) doing this all with a crying infant but for the look on mom and dad Canning's face it was well worth the effort.
Enjoy the weekend and time with the fam, xo Lisa
