50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

sunflower bra-71My parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary last year in a beautiful garden setting in Kelowna, BC, where they were married. We had a lovely afternoon gathering of old friends and family to celebrate.

The cake I made for their wedding was a two-tiered cake decorated with gold art-nouveau lattice-work, edible pearls, and hand-painted dragonflies.
