Award-winning Minnesota baker Marie Porter is adamant that she no longer makes custom wedding cakes ...but this one is an exception for friends.
Carrie and Otha get a very, VERY rare exemption to that rule, however. They’re good friends, and this weekend I made their wedding cake. Carrie and Otha aren’t traditionalists (unless we’re talking certain aspects of geekery!), and their cake would need to reflect that. At a quick, casual design session, it was decided that I would be making a Transformers themed cake for them.
As an accomplished comic book artist, Otha was VERY detailed in drawing up reference sketches for the fondant Optimus Prime that would be down on one knee atop the cake. Rather than holding out a ring box, he would be holding up a Matrix of Leadership. Awesome, right?
