Earlier this week, a photo entered our Customer Service e-mail in-box that caused more than a few sappy smiles around the office: An image of an elegantly decorated three-tier wedding cake, complete with roses and cake topper.
A wedding cake – or was it?
Upon further inspection (and a few, “Do you see what I see?” conversations), the wedding cake was revealed to be – get this – made of Green Mountain Coffee K-Cups. 15 different varieties, to be exact.
I could tell you the story behind this show of K-Cup love, but I think one of the architects of this no-sot-edible-but-oh-so-brewable confection says it best. Take it, Alice:
“My sister’s son is getting married on November 7, 2009. He and his fiancé received a Keurig coffee maker at her bridal shower. My sister and I also own Keurig makers and LOVE them. We also love the flavors of coffee that Green Mountain has to offer.
So, my sister, who doesn’t have one crafty bone in her body, decided that it would be a cool idea to make a “coffee cake” to surprise them with at the reception. But, because she didn’t know how to start, she brought me in on the project to be the “cake boss”. We used a plastic cake stand and started out with about 15 different flavors of coffees in white cups. […]
We had the best time making it and thought that Green Mountain Coffee would enjoy our craftiness with their product. And, I am sure the bride will be enjoying coffee while she dismantles it!!”
We send our best wishes to the happy couple! May your days be caffeinated and full of wonderful revelations!
