Bride and groom request wedding cake modeled to look like life-size deer

Different people find different things romantic. A wedding cake recently made at Shady Maple Market in East Earl, Pennsylvania was the shape of a deer, sitting down. Cake decorators say it took ten hours to create the deer.

The bride and groom came in with a pair of plastic antlers and asked the bakers to design a cake “to fit the antlers.” The head and neck of the cake are carved from Styrofoam, but the entire back part of the deer is made from cake– enough for 250 wedding guests. No word on why the unidentified bride and groom wanted a deer cake.
