Help us design an anniversary cake!

Recommended Posts

We are having a 50th wedding anniversary for my grandparents. My mom (the new and improved MelanieS) and I were trying to decide how to decorate the cake, and we decided to come to our favorite resource!

 

Here's what we've got so far: The cake will have 2 tiers, the top one 6 inches, and the bottom 8-10 inches (we haven't decided yet). It will be iced with white buttercream and have white icing roses tipped in gold icing.

 

The big question:

Do we want ribbons, words, dots, scrolls, initials, etc? It would likely be in white icing.

We thought the words would be cute, but we’re not sure what to put. Maybe things like love, forever, celebration, 50 years, etc. Any ideas?

I like the words or maybe the year they were married on one and 2008 on the other? You can always do it in the same color icing so it doesn't detract from the rest of the cake.

 

I did an 80th birthday once where they had every name that family members had called the birthday girl throughout her life (mommy, sissy, nana, ellie, etc.) It was a really sweet way to personalize the cake from everyone there.

Ooh, I love that idea for the birthday cake with all the names they had been known by. I'll have to remember that one! I guess on that same theme, we could put all the kids and grandkids' names around the cake.

We might have to get the bigger cake!

We had a cake with just roses in between the different layers for my grandparent's 50th. We had a picture of them at their hs prom (they never had an "official" wedding day- just a church with a handful of guests) and a picture of them now. I had created a bedazzled 50 (courtesy of all the BDW ideas) and placed that on top of the cake. I also made bedazzled initials to place in front of their cake.

 

I think the family names would be such a cute idea. Our cake would have been HUGE too!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
