Anyone who knows me knows that I love reality tv.  Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss are two of my favorite shows.  The creativity and talent that goes into Duff and Buddy's cakes is unbelievable.  If you do not plan on procuring the services of Duff or or Buddy, but still wish to create a memorable, personalized dessert at your event, take a look at this for inspiration...

This confection was created by Phil Delaplane, an instructor at the Culinary Institute of Amerca in New York, for his own wedding.  Why did a chef, who instructs other chefs to go on to work at some of the finest restaurants in the world, choose to create his own wedding cake from Hostess products?  The answer is simple...it was a way to personalize his special day. 

Phil and his fiance both loved Hostess Twinkies and Cupcakes as children and on their first date they ended a day of golf with champagne and Hostes Cupcakes.  When they started to plan their wedding, they just knew that they wanted their cake to be made from Hostess Cupcakes.  And the rest is history.

When you plan your own event, whether it is a wedding, mitzvah or shower, don't be afraid to step out of the box and try something untraditional.  Your thought and creativity will make your event truly special.
