Grooms, Start Your Engines!

We live in the South, and people here really love their NASCAR racing, but it's odd that until now, I have never been asked to do a NASCAR groom's cake.

This groom is a big Jeff Gordon fan, and wanted his signature "24" number to adorn the top of his groom's cake.  We printed the checkered flags out on card stock, and cut the numbers out of black and yellow modeling chocolate.

To get a little more chocolate on the cake, the groom opted for the "chocolate drippy" look and a few tuxedo and chocolate-covered strawberries.

As we were setting up the cake, a lady approached us and was telling us what a huge Jeff Gordon fan the groom was.  So big, in fact that the couple invited Jeff Gordon to their wedding!  She said that Jeff had declined their invitation, but did send the couple a wedding present... how cool is that?
