Fatal Wedding Big Reveal Day 11: Groom's Cake

In Fatal Consequences, you learned that Nick is a rabid fan of the Boston Red Sox. He grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts, which is just north of fabled Fenway Park. Also in FC, you met Nick's new friend Scotty, who asks Sam about doing something special for Nick at the wedding. This is what they came up with:

Groom's Cake 1:



Groom's Cake 2:



Groom's Cake 3:



And you chose....

NUMBER 2!!

I love the scene where Scotty presents Nick with the cake and their reaction when Shelby hands them a knife to cut it. I'll let you read all about it in Fatal Destiny! Four more days... It's now available for pre-order (even though it says $1, it will be free) on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I'd love to give away a Red Sox ball cap today, but that would be promoting my own agenda, so we'll go with another $25 gift card to Godiva in celebration of all things chocolate! Remember, you have to comment ON THE BLOG to be entered into the drawing.

Thanks to everyone who has come out to play during the Big Reveal. It's been so much fun reading all your comments!

I am all about you giving away a Red Sox hat. That would not be promoting your own agenda. That would just be providing a hat for the best team in the league and who wouldn't want that? LOL!

I am going to pout b/c I am still in awe of #3. It surprises me how much that really looks like a hat and not a cake. But #2 is pretty spectacular too :) In fact since they are all Red Sox cakes any of them will work for me!

Amy said...

OMG. Cake 2 is awesome. They're all beautiful and perfect, but # 2 looks like something that would be featured on a Food Network show on a Sunday afternoon. It's a spectacular cake for a spectacular groom.

woo hoo i am located in red sox nation, go sox!

Pat L. said...

I loved #1, then saw #2, how intricate. Glad it won.

Could use some Godiva.

I am in the Dodger nation even tho the owners are pathetic. But Kemp, Kershaw, Ethier and young guys are my favs. Would hate to see them get traded to get money.

Can you tell I want the owners GONE!!!!

peggy d said...

incredible cake Marie. I too could make better use of the ball cap than the chocolate!

Jenn said...

Love the Fenway! And in honor of the cake, the Sox won... And let's hope it repeats tonight! It's amazing what people can create. A friend recently had a Sox/Pats wedding cake and a sports themes wedding. The ball cap would have been fitting and part of the theme. :-)

Cake #2 would be really hard to cut!! It's way to elaborate to eat!! I too would've loved a Red Sox hat since St Louis is in the toilet this year!!

Marie Force said...

Glad you all are liking the groom's cake. Believe me, Shelly, Nick is none too pleased to hear that he's expected to "cut" Fenway. There is a significant amount of whimpering involved! :-)

GO SOX!!!!!

#2 is a very cool cake.
I think I saw something similar on on e of those cake competition shows.

Karen C said...

Wow - cake #2 is amazing, although I prefer the simplicity of #3.

And, since I don't live in your neck of the woods anymore, I'm a Texas Ranger fan!

StephanieJS said...

Wow all three cakes are amazing! I can see why Nick would have a hard time cutting the cake.

I'm headed to pre-order Fatal Destiny now. I've never wanted the weekend to come and go so quickly. Anxiously awaiting Monday!

THe second cake was the better choice. Glad it won. Can't wait to read about slicing into it.

Joy said...

OMG Marie, you are teasing again! Why didn't you pick a release date before Labor Day so I could have the nice long weekend to enjoy?? :)

Marie Force said...

Joy--I have no control over the release dates for the Fatal series. The publisher decides that.

Monika Michalak said...

I love #1 But as long as you can eat them cake is cake! LOL
They are all cool!

I want to eat them all. I love cake #2 it's so detailed! It's one of those cakes where it may be too pretty to eat. I'd want to take lots of pictures and admire it before cutting into it. Great choice.

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."
This cake is perfect! I can just see the delight on Nick's face when he sees his groom's cake, as well as the joy in Scotty's eyes. I'm betting Nick and his young friend will soon be singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" together . . . probably many times in the years to come.

Melissa B said...

Fabulous choice for Nick's cake! I love the relationship between Nick and Scotty.

Marie, I've also pre-ordered the book. Only ninety more hours to wait!!

This cake was not my choice. Can not wait for the big day.

Danielle Gorman said...

I liked all three cakes but I think that the second is the most creative looking. All those details must have been insane to create for a cake.

Johanna R Jochum said...

I love em all! Number one is my fav but number two is very creative! Those type of cakes are very expensive too! I have been watching all those cake shows! The Time and the effort that goes into them is amazing! Thanks for sharing today!

Shannon Tidwell said...

Love it!!! Can't wait!

Jackie said...

#2 was my choice. The "monster" seats that Nick reminisced about and everything.

That cake is an amazing re-creation of Fenway! How could you ever cut it...it is a work of art! Love the choice!

Kay said...

#2 is fabulous... How can a man not love that one?

Anonymous said...

I love cake #1 - it looks simpler to cut; but there is more to #2, so I guess that was a good choice.

This was the first one that didn't turn out to be what I picked, darn it. BUT, he will have a great cake no matter what.

limecello said...

Yes! Number two is the Ace of Cakes cake, right? :D Love that one - fancy and so much fun.

Barbara said...

It's great! The guys will NOT want to cut it! What fun. Wouldn't mind the red sox cap, by the way.
