About 30 minutes before I started writing this, I was looking through my iPad at the last few weeks cakes to find the perfect one to write about. And as I sat here in the sweltering Georgia heat, with record-breaking 100+ degree temperatures, this hockey rink cake called my name, as seeing it immediately made the room feel 10 degrees cooler!
This is a simple cake, but it holds TONS of sentiment. You see, when Nick decided he wanted to propose to Meredith, he did so by writing his proposal on the ice rink. Now I don't know how one goes about getting something written on an ice rink, but I bet it's not an easy feat to accomplish. This groom's cake really shows the commitment this couple has made to each other; it really touched my heart!
Tomorrow we celebrate Independence Day here in America, and while it's not super patriotic, here's a quote I read recently that made me smile by Erma Bombeck: "You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism."
