I've been approached by another Weim rescue volunteer to bake a dog wedding cake for a NYC store promo. Natural Balance and Petco want to get people in the weekend of the Westminster show. I'm so excited -- I've got it all planned out -- even bride/groom dogs to match the breed and colors of the couple! LOL They only asked for a cake and cookies, but I put a quote together for everything -- including the display, table cover, cake server, plates, napkins (they say "our wedding" -- so cute!). Thought I'd make it more appealing to them; a party-in-a-package.
Strange how things come about. I knew a woman who couldn't keep her Weim, so I put her in touch with Weim Rescue. The "cake woman" wound up fostering the dog and ultimately adopted him in June. That month my cookie-of-the-month was a ginger wedding bell with coconut, and I sent some to her to thank her for adopting. So she specifically asked for those cookies for the NY event! A random act of kindness comes back to me.
I've been invited to attend, too. Hope we don't get our first major snow storm that weekend. Would be my luck.
