I was there, at the scene of my thoughts, eyes staring blankly forward, fingers drumming the passing seconds and lips humming to a familiar tune. It has become a consistent affair now to align my thoughts with all of the above actions, crystallizing the apprehension of the unversed. I was in love with the idea, adored the very thought of doing something different for a wedding cake. But when the unnerving side of me took charge, the mere thought of executing it became extremely formidable. Here was a cake which would defy gravity, one that would have to travel down south on the day when everyone else chose to tread on the same road.
It was indeed a gargantuan job for this ugly duckling.
However, building dessert from sketches of love modelled by words from brides to be is purely humbling. I share the passion, the fervor, the animation of my customers towards materializing their love onto the wedding cake. It is the grand finale of their beautiful day, the delectable end to a sweet start. The most wonderful thing is I get to feel the love and blessings scattered all around, as brief as my presence is, I am still able to thrive on them.
And miraculously, upon each completion, this ugly duckling moves much closer to flapping its wings along side with the other swans.Loving You Till The End Of Time.
