Love Birds 50th Wedding Anniversary Cake

This cake was made for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. When I started to make it I actually had no idea how I wanted the finished cake to look, which is often the way with me. Needless to say I eventually fell upon a theme and this was the finished result.

The cake has appeared in Cake Wrecks Sunday Tweets which made me hugely proud and I have had several people message me and ask my permission to replicate it.

On the down side, I have only just learnt how to watermark my photos, and on several occassions now the picture has been lifted and other people have claimed it as their own. More recently a company named Cherry on a Cake used it on their Facebook page and then blocked me when I tried to get her to take it down. Hilariously the like of Maise Fantaise, Couture Cakes and Kylie Lambert came to my defense and after a few exchanges the picture was finally removed along with cakes from some other very famous cake makers!

This is beautiful ! and well done for sticking up for your own work and getting it removed after it was “stolen”.. its yours be proud :) xx

Michelle Keel ...

Thanks, yes I did feel quite vindicated when she took it down. Why people steal other people’s work is beyond me. I always feel so proud putting my own work up x

I’ve recently purchased a GCC mould & have been looking for ideas on how to decorate them when I found yours. It’s so beautiful. I have a family 50th anniversary coming up this year & it would be a wonderful cake to do for them. I hope you wouldn’t mind if I copied your idea if I decide to go ahead. Thank you :)
