Let Them Eat Cake

Working in Beaverton for the past two months, I have learned quite a bit about the city that is home for 87,500 people. I have discovered unique antique shops, quirky restaurants, and a bountiful farmers market. The city has much to be proud of, including a bakery that has been in Beaverton since 1925.

The Beaverton Bakery will always have a special place in my heart because in 2009, during my search for someone who could make me a cake like this:

They were the only ones willing to commit, despite the complexity and danger of fondant melting due to the heat of summer. They committed, and did a wonderful job:

Now the difficult part is walking down the streets of Beaverton and resisting the strong aroma of baked goodness. I may succumb to the temptation every once in a while, but mainly the whiff of freshly made cake reminds me of our special day, which is usually enough to satisfy.
