“We worked with the amazing Kake by Darci (based in Canmore, Alberta) and told her we wanted to incorporate Bear into our wedding cake,” Roisin Bicklmeier, Bear’s mom, told The Dodo. “I told her I had brought a little golden figurine and was wondering if she could put him on the back of the cake as a hidden detail doing something naughty, like dirty paw prints or whatever. She told me she would absolutely incorporate him, and I didn’t actually know what she was planning until I saw it on the day!”
When their wedding day finally arrived, Bicklmeier and her fiancé Hunter got Bear all dressed up and ready to steal the show. He walked down the aisle with Bicklmeier’s brother, wearing a sign that said, “Don’t worry ladies, I’m still single,” and everyone immediately fell in love with him. It seemed as if that moment would be the highlight — until everyone finally saw the cake.
