Wanna see the perfect cake for your Grand Canyon wedding? #Food#arizona#cake#cake alternative#geeky weddings#state park Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jun 3 2013) Guest post by AnyaMind Photo by Sierra Smith Photography We're total Grand Canyon nerds, so our cake for our Grand Canyon wedding was such a blessing. I used to work at a cakery and one of my past co-workers/good friend offered to make us a cake for only cost of ingredients. It is completely geologically accurate, which is something we really insisted on from the start… Photo by Sierra Smith Photography. And we even decided to turn the cake cutting into a geology lesson. As we cut the cake, Dillon named and explained the composition of each layer. It was a blast and so appropriate for us. Guest post written by AnyaMind I live in northern Arizona and am absolutely obsessed with exploring the Southwestern landscape. I moved out West (from S Florida) in '09 for college, finished my BA in environmental science and adventure education, and am now working full time as an entomologist. Some of my favorite things are coffee, rock climbing, ants, hiking, the Grand Canyon, trying to recreate my grandpas Russian cooking, awesome boots, and also my husband Dillon. http://tribe.offbeatbride.com/members/anyamind/ PREVIOUS Megan & Joe's relaxed daytime wedding with a hug line NEXT Why are so many offbeat weddings low-budget? Show/Hide comments [ 6 ] NICE RED BEDS YA GOT THERE!!! But no really this cake has me filled with geo-love. You guys are AWESOME. Reply This is awesome! I'm not even in to geology and I wish I had been at your wedding anyway! Reply Far out! What a great idea… mmmm I could totally go an Aussie version with a cake of Uluru or Kata Tjuta. If it gets me smiles likes yours on my big day, it'd totally be worth the extra effort it must take to make a geologically-correct cake! Thank you for sharing x Reply Being a cake decorator on the side, I think this is the coolest cake I've seen in a long time! Nice job on it too!! Reply Aww, AZ love! This cake makes me so full of happiness! Reply How funny! I laughed as soon as I opened this post. I have a geologist friend who would have done the same thing with this cake, turned it into a lesson about the earth's layers.
