Golden Wedding Anniversary cake

My Mum & Dad celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary last weekend. I planned to make them a cake a couple of weeks ago (Christmas cake recipe so it really needed to be "fed" with brandy for a couple of weeks at least) but I've have had a really vile flu/chest infection so it was a bit late! Anyhow, I made the cake on Sunday and then spent almost 8 hours decorating it yesterday. Their sofa is quite a long one, and the way I've positioned them is pretty much how they always sit. It was a real labour of love and I think they really appreciated it.

Here're a few pics for posterity before it gets eaten!

Ta ladies. I think Mum's going to take the topper off and save it in a box somewhere. She says she keeps looking at it today! Aw, bless.
