What do you get when you combine a love of vegetable gardening, reading and education, and thirty-eight wonderful years together??? Well, a unique creation that includes all four! I wanted this cake to be well-loved, aged, worn, treasured, and bountiful....all the attributes I think of when I ponder a long marriage. Every bent page, wrinkle in the leather, scuff on the corner tells a story and holds a memory and the lush vegetables radiate the bounty of life. The worn leather book and vibrant vegetables capture this beautifully. The authors could be no other then this extra special couple that the cake was designed for. The book symbolizes the story that these two have been writing together for the last thirty-eight years that they have been married AND pays tribute to her love of reading and education. She is a retired learning disabled teacher and he is an avid vegetable gardener who enjoys growing tomatoes, green beans, lettuce, and a host of other yummy treats! Congratulations to you both for spending thirty-eight wonderful years as a couple and may you enjoy many, many more happy years to come!!
