A Valentine Ode to My Cake Carrier...

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I discovered something rather funny the other day.  With the recent birthday celebrations, I started to realise that there was a certain person who is usually always carrying the birthday cake while I am taking the photos.

Yes, it's Symon... the official cake carrier.

So, with today being Valentines day, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to write him a special poem...  my Ode to the Cake Carrier.

My dearest carrier of cakes, oh where would we be,
Without your superior cake carrying skills, and stability of hand and knee.

You are reliable, stable and strong every second of the day,
You can confidently balance most styles of platter, plate and tray. 

My darling, the one often in the shadow of the birthday star,
I wrote you this wee note, just so you know that you caught my eye from afar

I know that cake carrying takes a certain level of skill.
And while others may never notice you in the background, just be sure that your cake carrying skills make my heart stand still...

Happy Valentines Day Symon... from your loving and slightly crazy wife.

  1. I love this! It made me smile, big time.
    Great poem, and I love that your hubby is the cake carrier. What a great, thankless (usually, until the wife writes a poem about it and puts it on her blog!) task but an important one. I think it just shows how much he loves all the cake recipients and the cake baker/decorator!

    Happy Valentines Day :-)
