My wedding poster, trailer, and epic cake
It’s been a few years since I last mentioned this stuff, so I’m gonna share it again for the benefit of new readers! Back when my wife and I were first engaged, we were both working in movie advertising. So naturally, after setting a date, the first thing we did was make a poster (above, click for bigger).
Then, we made a trailer:
(if you don’t have Flash, here are lo-res and hi-res QuickTime versions)
And being action-movie fans, we decided we needed an action-movie cake:
It was designed by me and created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond, WA. Click the image for a closer look!
If you have further sinister curiosity about our wedding itself you can always look at some of our vaguely interesting pictures as well. But the main thing is the cake — I’ve seen it linked around the internet anonymously before, and I want to make sure it’s got an attribution attached to it.
By the way each tier was a different flavor

The trailer prompted me to exclaim “holy fuck.” This is uncharacteristic for me. I thought you should know.

I take my hat off to you guys. Very creative!

Woah, my worlds are colliding…this showed up in my Google Reader because I subscribed to Wondermark after being recommended it via Qwantz. However, the cake is rather worthy of Cake Wrecks’ Sunday Sweets, which is also in my Google Reader. Crazy times.
Also, that trailer was incredible.

The best man is also the lead stunt man.

Awesome! Your trailer had the menacing “boom” sound at the beginning–love it! (the cake is just wonderful)

Every time I’ve seen it linked around the Internet anonymously before I’ve said (to no one in particular) “THAT is Malki !’s cake!”

I thought this cake was soooo awesome when I saw it on Cake Wrecks. They have some great cakes on their Sunday Sweets edition. It’s cool to know who actually had this made.

I’m another one of those folks who started seeing that amazing cake EVERYWHERE recently. And with good reason. Man, that’s cool.

That’s pretty amazing. And I, too, got married on June 24 (2005) in Seattle!

I AM FROM REDMOND, AND REDMOND IS AMAZING. SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS LOCK, BUT I FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT MY HOMETOWN.
