Okay, so maybe more like 10 seconds.
Admittedly, the hubs and I watch a lot of TV – and a lot of it is reality TV. Celebrity Apprentice, Real Housewives, Top Chef, Shark Tank etc. It’s our guilty pleasure I suppose, but it makes nice background noise as we type away on our computers.
The other day I scrolled through the cable listings and came across the premiere episode of Tori & Dean’s sTORIbook Weddings. (You know Tori Spelling of Beverly Hills zip code fame.) I hardly watch wedding shows now that we’re nearing our second anniversary, but what caught my eye in the description was “Pug Chic Wedding”. I thought – we gotta watch this! So I recorded it on our DVR.
My husband and I plan to get a pug. Although our wedding was not pug-themed – we did have a black pug wedding cake. Not as our groom’s cake, but as THE cake. We chose red velvet cake with strawberry compote for the head and chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream for the body. We also had a sheet cake in the back of white cake with passion fruit and raspberry cream to make sure we didn’t have a cake emergency! When it came time for the cake-cutting, we couldn’t bear to decapitate it, so we chose to cut a slice from the butt! Meanwhile all our guests were laughing and it was certainly something that stood out in their memories.
Imagine our surprise, not a few minutes into the show, when the bride pulls out a photo of OUR PUG CAKE to show Tori and Dean!
Tori is a pug lover too so she must love our pug cake!
Our pug cake gets its close up!
It was good fun to see it on TV and of course we reminisced about our big day – it’s hard to believe almost two years have passed!
Going to pull out all my wedding photo albums now! 🙂
Have a great Sunday folks!
