Chantelle wanted me to do her wedding and groom cakes, but after much prayer and discussion my husband and I decided it was too hard to do large wedding cakes in our small kitchen at this time in my life. I still offered to do the groom's cake and was excited about being able to do a groom's cake without also doing the wedding cake. Wedding cakes are always such large structures, that I have to spend more time on them!!
Chantelle wanted two half stadiums (baseball and football) put together. At first I thought there was NO way, since the fields are such different shapes and sizes. We spent a lot of time studying and researching both and discussed it with Chantelle a second time. She told us we could do whatever we wanted to do, just to tie in both the Bears and the Cubs together... although she still liked her two stadium combo cake idea!

On the inside of the Bears Stadium, we put advertisements (what is a sporting event without some of those? LOL - picture also taken before 'people' added.)

On each side, we also put a cap/helmit and a ball to go along with the 'sport' represented.Here is the cake at the wedding reception near the wedding cake!!
