I guess the title is a bit misleading as Lord Stanley’s visit was brief and it was a few months ago, but you still have a chance to see it.¬† Perhaps I should explain.
Turn back the clocks to August of last year where Dan Stienberg introduced us to Michelle and Dave, better known on the Caps’ official boards as capscrazy and Flipper.¬† They began dating when the lockout started and Dave popped the question in June of last year.¬† When Dan met the happy couple, they were taking pictures at Kettler for their “save the date” cards.
And so there’s the rehearsal dinner at Kettler, and the hockey puck favors, and the introduction, during which the wedding party will wear jerseys and the priest will be dressed as a referee and they’ll all pass underneath an arch made of raised hockey sticks.
The cake, naturally, will be shaped like the Stanley Cup, provided the bakery–Charm City Cakes in Baltimore–can pull it off.
If you don’t know, Charm City Cakes is the home to one of the Food Network’s most popular shows, Ace of Cakes.¬† Owner Duff Goldman and his staff make “out-of-the-ordinary” cakes from exact replicas of acoustic guitars to life-like basket of flowers and everything in between.
To make sure Michelle and Dave’s Stanley Cup looked just right, Duff enlisted the help of the NHL and the Hockey Hall of Fame.¬† Lord Stanley made the trip to Baltimore’s Charm City Cakes to pose as model for the wedding cake.¬† Duff is a hockey fan and a hockey player, so why not try to pull some network television strings to work along side hockey’s holy grail.¬† Yes, the cameras were rolling and Lord Stanley’s appearance on Ace of Cakes debuts on the Food Network this Thursday night at 10pm.
Here’s a sample of Ace of Cakes:
