Piece of cake, I say...

Wanna know where I'm getting my cake? Imagine this. Melinda, the owner of Dede's Decor and the oh so talented creator of cakes makes a personal visit to my home. She pops open her laptop and shows me hundreds of pictures of cakes she has created (a small sampling is located here, on her Web site: http://dedesdecor.com/Gallerynew/celegallery.htm ) and asks me to point out just what I like about the cakes that are my favorites. I tell her I like a little bit of this and a little bit of that. She gets out a blank piece of paper and a pencil and starts to sketch. Out of her pencil comes this magical drawing of my dream cake. Then she gets out her colored pencils and starts coloring it all in to match the colors I've selected for the big day. How ultra cool is that? And the best part... the cakes she brought over to sample were just to die for. Great looking and even better tasting. Yum. It almost doesn't matter that the cake is costing more than my dress. That's just a little detail. But really, it is so worth it. I'm happy to admit I'm a cake snob. And this cake is living up to all a wedding cake should. What fun.

WOW! She's talented. And beautiful. Please tell me she was either dumb or conceited. I couldn't take it if she were nice and smart as well...
