Bushel of crabs?

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

As most of you know from our photos here on SP, my husband (CaptainCookie) makes some incredibly beautiful wedding cakes (ours included). What follows is pure Louisiana and an awesome job by someone.

Honey, what do you think? They should have used Zatarain's instead of Old Bay, right? lol





These photos were taken at a wedding in Louisiana. It's A Wedding Cake!
The crabs, corn, and even the container of Old Bay Seasoning are made of white chocolate. The sand is crushed graham crackers and vanilla wafers.
The mallets are fondant, a confection used for decorating. The entire $700 cake is edible!

  Missy, I remember a lot of these ads, not all of them but about half of them and also remember how they pushed Chesterfield cigasrete because of not having a cough in a car load.

Also coke a cola which I was raised on. They used to come in little bottles I do not recall how many ounces they were but little.

The image of women sure has changed a lot also. I remember how a woman was supposed to be.

    It is funny to look back on old advertisements and see all the stupid things they pushed like beer for new mothers and so much smoking back then. My doctor when I was a kid was a heavy smoker. He always had one in his hand when I went to see him. I remember Lane Bryants well since there weren't that many places to buy clothing for overweight kids like me when I was little. We've come a long way baby.
