My soul mate and I celebrated our 25th anniversary last month…Although we planned our anniversary trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming together there was a little sneaking around going on with some of the details. I thought I would surprise my husband by ordering a small version of our wedding cake from a local Jackson bakery.
When we arrived in Jackson our room wasn’t ready so we decided to take a walk around town. Our hotel was right off the town square and everything was within a 4 block radius. As we walked I began to talk about this bakery I had heard of in Jackson. I talked and talked about the macaroons they made and I expressed how I just had to have a macaroon while we were there. We walked until we came to the bakery I had found online. I asked my husband to wait while I ran and checked to see if they had the desired sweet available at such a late hour of the day. I came out with a little white cake box that held the cake I had ordered weeks earlier. I smiled, he smiled..we walked back to the hotel. What was really in the box was still my little secret surprise.
We walked back to the hotel with the little cake box. Our room wasn’t quite ready so we sat in the lobby in front of the big fireplace and looked through a couple local magazines. The wait wasn’t too long. Finally our room was ready, our bags were taken up and a few minutes later we walked into the most beautiful hotel room. That’s when I discovered I wasn’t the only who had been planning a little surprise.,,the room was filled with flowers. Roses, lilies, hydrangea…where do you find hydrangea in February in Wyoming?
It was so sweet knowing that we both had been thinking about making our anniversary extra special for the other by planning, plotting, researching and seeing to a few extra special surprise details.
The cake was 6 layers of sweet red velvet covered in cream cheese buttercream icing. The flowers were lovely and fragrant…all of my favorites.
