I'm taking orders

Today I went to a bridal show with Melissa. One of those deals you walk around, pick up business cards, see samples, register to win.

Well, the big prize was the free honeymoon. They were looking for 3 contestants to make a Krispy Kreme cake in under 2 minutes. Melissa had a 1976 quarter and that made her the third and final contestant! So, of course, she dragged her maid of honor up on stage to help her. We had a box of donuts, ribbons, beads, dowel rods, and fake flowers to make a beautiful wedding cake.

I KNEW the minute we got up on stage we were going to win. We ended up being the only group that made a multi-leveled cake. We had a top donut with a flower, with beads and ribbons spilling down across the base. And when the crowd was asked to cheer for the best, we were HANDS DOWN the best. So Melissa won a free honeymoon!!!! I was screaming and jumping up and down, hugging her with my sticky fingers and freaking out.

Anyway....what a fun way to spend a Sunday, helping my best friend win her honeymoon. Plus, I was able to pick up a copy of Oklahoma Bride Magazine, so I can thumb through hundreds of OKC brides (more than half I know from high school, college, and work). Good times...

Anyway, congrats to Melissa! And checkout our beautiful cake...we're taking orders if you're interested!
