Whilst most couples usually have a stunning cake specially made for their wedding reception, others clearly summon the power of baked goods for an engagement.
When Alex Patterson decided to propose to boyfriend Benjamin Mize, he had to find a unique and wonderful way to do it. So, he looked to cake for the answer!
Turning to Creative Cakes by Catherine, Alex ordered a cake that involved all their favorite things, including Harry Potter, The Walking Dead and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's incredible - take a look!
Speaking about the idea behind the cake, Patterson said:
We’ve also developed a shared interest in board games, so I thought about the books and games that are most important to us.
If you look closely, the cake features a copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, The Iliad and The Odyssey, the Pandemic board game, some boarded-up doors from The Walking Dead, a stake from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a Dunder Mifflin logo from The Office, all topped off by a little rainbow. It's genius!
Patterson gave the cake to his boyfriend, along with a stunning ring that his mother had given to his father. And... Mize of course said yes!
A huge congratulations to the happy couple!
