It was William's childhood dream to be an actor. Hence....*drum rolls* cinema/movie theme night for his second dinner!!!!
Before I forget, the couple even made a short movie of themselves meeting after school and eventually getting married and they were too late for their own wedding dinner. The guests had left! THEN....they woke up and realized it was just a bad dream. But in 'reality' all is not over. They overslept!!! Panic they had to rush to their wedding dinner where guests are already waiting. That was when the movie ended and they make their ENTRANCE. It was hilarious and cute at the same time. Both were such natural as actors. Shane (MY SON *cough*) was their wedding planner for the 2 nights and he did great with the idea of the movie. That night I see Shane in a different light....a true talent. His planning and decorating ideas speaks volume. As an MC he was lively and confident. Proud of him. BTW its the first time I attended a dinner with him as emcee and planner....that is why I need to blow my trumpet here *bow with apology but no shame*

Now back on track to the cake.
What better idea then a cake with reels, clapboard, popcorns and red carpet??
The reels had 'films' of the couple's wedding photos. They were stacked up 'randomly' to have that fun feel. I gave them corrugated texture to have that vintage look....to go with the old fashion lighted bulbs around the movie posters on the wall.
Popcorns were made from modelling chocolate and painted in shades of browns to make them 'caramelized'. As it was a wedding cake there were sugar flowers as well. Stairs with red carpets for the 'movie stars' of the day with real cake inside.
Right on top is the movie clapboard carrying the family name: TEH Production. Cameraman was the dad's and Director was the mum's names. Of coz movie title was 'William & Anjol'. Scene: Wedding. Total cake height was 3.5 feet.
