From friend of TFN, Mark:"I thought you guys would like to see this. My wife and I got married a couple of weeks ago. We decided early on that we wanted the folks at Charm City Cakes to do our wedding cake. While sitting with Duff trying to figure out what we wanted, my then wife-to-be mentioned her idea of having us fighting with lightsabers on top of the cake. Unfortunately, that clashed with our elegant cake design that we had been working on. So Duff suggested a groom's cake for the "fun cake", and this is what came out of it.
This is a link to their blog. The blog entry want you to see is dated 06/04/2008. If this link doesn't take you directly to that blog entry, navigate back to it to see the picture of the cake. This cake was not only a huge hit with our wedding guests because of how it looked, but it was also quite delicious. My hat is off to the folks at Charm City Cakes for pulling off such a cool cake!"
Thanks Mark and congrats to you and your new wife!UPDATE #19: Starwars.com
