The redhead’s Aggie cousin, Reese, got married a few weeks ago in College Station. I planned on making a few bride and groom cake pops for the wedding, but strange things happened and the cake plans were popped.
At the family Easter gathering (when the Easter cake pops article had just "dropped") Nicole’s, the fiancee's, dad said it would be fun if I could make Reese and Nicole pops. I wholeheartedly agreed. What better way to celebrate a marriage than by eating a cake pop of the bride and groom’s face? I'm pretty sure that's a ritual in some culture - and if not, perhaps it should be.
For their wedding rehearsal dinner, I crafted them each a cake pop portrait. Due to extreme Texas heat compounded by my own forgetfulness (I left the pops in a car) the cake pops melted into a mushy mess.
Chris said that Reese looked a little too much like Bobby Hill anyway (pre-melt).
I told Nicole’s mom that I would re-make the portrait pops. And though I couldn’t get it done for the wedding, I still kept my end of the promise - a little late.
I used Facebook for research on facial structure. Thanks Mark Zuckerberg.
Nicole’s head is a little bigger than than I hoped. Sorry Nicole. I hope you still like your bride cake pop.
Here’s to Reese and Nicole. Non-cake pop pictures from the wedding to follow.
