Happy 35th Wedding Anniversary!

Happy 35th Wedding Anniversary BaMe (dad and mom in Vietnamese). It was such an honor to be asked by my in-laws to make them a cake for this very special occasion! Khoa's dad's favorite cake is carrot cake, so the bottom tier is carrot cake with whipped cream cheese filling, and Khoa's mom likes something that's not too sweet so French Vanilla with Bavarian cream filling was the perfect blend. The cake is covered in buttercream frosting, and the flowers are made out of fondant. Some of the flowers had edible pearls in the centers while others had non-edible stamens in them for variety. I also made feathers out of parchment paper to add a more couture look! The cakes were bordered with glittery fuchsia colored ribbon as well because fuchsia is my Khoa's mom's favorite color.
BaMe first met on a boat back on April 30th, 1975 when they were on their way to America from Viet Nam. It truly was love at first sight! Fast forward 41 years later to today, July 2, 2011, and now we celebrate their 35th Wedding Anniversary!! They had a big celebration at one of their favorite restaurants the Emerald Bay in Santa Ana where all their close friends and family gathers to party the night away. Co Muoi did a great job DJ-ing and hosting the celebration! My mother in law had her ao dai (tradition Vietnamese dress) custom made and it turned out absolutely stunning and beautiful on her! We all had a wonderful time celebrating their marriage, and it was truly an inspiring event. We have lots of AMAZING musical performances including a super impression Vietnamese singing from our beautiful cousin Linh and a very soulful and heartfelt song by Bao (Chi Tu), and my awesome husband Khoa sang the best he's ever sung while my brother in law An did a really great job on the guitar as always! BaMe really deserved a great big night to celebrate because they've done so much for their kids, family, friends and loved ones. Just being there and celebrating their marriage was a truly inspiring night and if I sure hope to follow in their footsteps! I wish BaMe 35+ more years of love and happiness!

Here's a sweet poem I found by Karl & Joanna Fuchs:

Loving Pair
It takes two special people,
To make a loving pair.
There’s a joy just being around you,
A feeling we love to share.
We send anniversary wishes to you,
For years of joy and pleasure.
May each year keep getting better,
With memories to treasure.

Happy 35th Wedding Anniversary BaMe!!!
