Now that "takes the cake". At the January Bridal Spectacular Harrahs Entertainment had a cake you could not miss in their booth! It was at least 3 feet tall and featured all of their properties. Other incredible cakes were shown by Creations Bakery, Simple Elegance, and Albertson's. There were even wedding cupcakes on display. Today's bride has many options to choose from.
After attending a few weddings myself recently, I wondered if the trend is going toward smaller cakes on display and then having sheet cakes to make sure you have enough for all your guests. While this might be an option that is better on your budget, these smaller cakes don't make as dramatic a presentation for photos ....especially during the cake cutting ceremony. There are other ways to make your cake look larger than it really is too, ask your baker if they can make a dummy layer for effect and to make the cake taller. Please do consider how the cake will look on the cake table and size does count in the over all scheme of things.
Remember the best way to pick a cake is to be able to taste it! When you attend The Bridal Spectacular July 20 & 21 there will be lots of cake to sample and savor.

OK, I've been a little busy lately and have not kept up with my blogs. However, I have a very good excuse.
I'm such a proud mom right now and getting ready to see both my kids graduate! First my talented, son Ty Hansen is graduating from UAT in Tempe, Arizona with a Bachelor in Science Degree with an emphasis in Web Development. Ty is the creator and webmaster of our website and has programmed such innovations as our virtual floor plan and our barcoded on line ticketing system. Ty also runs the ticketing department at the show and has worked there since he was 5!

Next comes my lovely Laura, who has also been working at the show since she was 3; first modeling as a flower girl and now one of the beautiful bridal gown models in the show! She is graduating from CCSN with her Associate of Arts Degree on May 14th and from high school on June 12. What a determined young lady to do both by the age of 18. She is a truly talented artist and recently created our new logo! Laura will be attending NAU in the fall pursuing a degree in Art Education.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to brag a little about my two fabulous children, now young adults, making their parents so proud!
