Last weekend, there was a wedding involving a groom from Alabama and a bride from Texas — both of whom, we presume, are college football fans.
So when deciding on a theme for their wedding cake, they reached a compromise: A Texas-shaped cake – the top of which has frosting in a houndstooth design and the Crimson Tide’s signature script “A.”
Plus, as far as well can tell, the sides of the cake and the script “A” are more maroon than crimson. Perhaps the bride is a Texas A&M Aggies fan and/or alum, in which case the nod to the legendary Bear Bryant (who was the head coach at both schools) with the houndstooth frosting is very appropriate.
Or perhaps they were operating on this simple yet brilliant rationale.
