The Wedding Cake

The dignified wedding topper placed on top while the merry one sits at the base of the wedding cake. (The baker and cake decorator is my talented cousin, Patsy Franciscus Soo.)

The invitation received a year ago.
Sharyl and Adam had set the date.
What gift would you like?
The Wedding Cake, Sharyl replied.

The Wedding theme of red and white.
Red flowers for the cake.
The choice of design left to the expert.
A three-tier white cake settled on.

The cake topper so many to choose from.
The cake decorator had her own choice.
From the classic to the funny.
We ended up with two cake topper.

This gift shared with another.
To give them the perfect cake.
The final touch of red peonies.
The two topper dignified and merry.

Your wedding day yours to treasure.
Your first kiss as husband and wife.
A day of many first to start marriage.
Cutting the Wedding Cake as newlyweds.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
