Regular readers of this blog will by now have recognized a truth that dawned on us years ago: we’re probably not getting married.
We drink too much beer, eat too much pizza and walk around the house in our jockey shorts. Sometimes all at once. (How’s that for a visual?)
Still, we hold out hope (because we do love wedding cake) and we’re reassured to know that, if we ever are lucky enough to get hitched, our cake-toppers will not be limited to the traditional caucasian groom/caucasian bride. Because we can go to Renellie International and choose appropriate figurines for the occasion.
Renellie was founded in 2004 by friends Rena Puebla and Ellie Genuardi. The business specializes in finely crafted multiethnic cake figurines.
The idea was born after Puebla’s marriage to husband Ron, who is Asian. “I had two white people on my cake,” she says. “No one had choices.”
Now they do. Costa Mesa, California-based Renellie offers brides and grooms in white, black, Asian and Hispanic. Same-sex couples are also available.
So great. That’s one less thing for us to worry about come wedding day. If ever. To whoever.
Now there’s just the small matter of venue. The guest list we’ve got figured out: all loyal readers of this blog.
And the menu’s planned too. Hope you like beer and pizza.
