Can you imagine being married for 50 years – half a century waking up next to the same person every day? In our modern times being married for so many years is rather rare, as most couples are getting a divorce after only a few years of marriage. Under these circumstances the 50th wedding anniversary deserves a sumptuous celebration.
The 50th wedding anniversary (also called “the golden wedding anniversary”) is a milestone in a couple’s life. That’s why its celebration must be an unforgettable event for the family, the friends and for the couple itself. Beginning with the location of the anniversary party to the decoration, music, food and guests – every little detail must be perfect.
The right decoration, music, a great atmosphere and lovely guests are important, but we all know that there is no real party without a cake. The anniversary cake is the centerpiece of every party. Such an important event as the 50th wedding anniversary deserves a special cake. How should the 50th wedding anniversary cake be? Well, first of all the anniversary cake should be a reflection of the couple and their marriage. The cake should also match the decoration and theme of the celebration – in some cases it is better to choose the cake first and then the decorations for the party.
A great idea for a 50th wedding anniversary cake is to remake the original wedding cake. If you have a picture of the original cake, just go with it to a baker; most likely he will be able to create a replica of the original one. If you do not have a picture of the original wedding cake, try to describe it as best as possible.
It might not turn out exact the same, but it will sure be close enough. Use the original cake topper if you still have it; if not try to find one that looks very much alike. A remake of the original wedding cake brings back beautiful memories from your wedding day, creating a fascinating atmosphere.
Another option for your 50th wedding anniversary cake is a traditional 2, 3, 4 or 5 tier cake. These cakes can be either round or square; can have any color and any kind of decoration. Most couples chose a very traditional cake: a white cake with golden decorations. But there are certain couples that like their cake to be more modern, choosing other colors.
Cakes shaped as five and zero are another popular option for 50th wedding anniversary cake. You can buy such cakes at almost any bakery. You can decorate them as you want. There are no limits in choosing the perfect 50th wedding anniversary cake. If you want you can create your own wedding anniversary cake. Maybe you like a heart shaped anniversary cake or maybe you want a cake with a photo of you and your partner on it. Be creative and make your own original anniversary cake – and if you can’t bake, then just find a good baker who will make your fantasy come true.11
