Below, you will see a photo sent to us by one of our American friends showing a scene they came across from an American wedding. As you may know, they do things slightly differently over there:
The accompanying email asked: “Which wedding superhero are you?!”
This required a little thought on our part. As you are doubtless aware, there is no wedding-based superhero. Nor is there a crepe-related superhero. Which means there definitely isn’t a wedding crepes superhero (though judging from some of our testimonials, some of our clients might disagree!)
After some thought, we found the answer.
If we were superheroes, we would be:
Ok, it’s perhaps not the catchiest name for a superhero. And we aren’t exactly sure what his special powers could be – maybe “sliming” the baddies with huge amounts of nutella. But the danger of that is there could be a rapid increase in the number of bad guys (or girls) willing to risk being completely covered in nutella – as punishments go, it’s not a bad option, is it?
But how could our superhero fit in at a wedding or party? Well virtually every event where our mobile creperie has been hired has seen exemplary behaviour. So there would be no need for law-and-order type activities from us. Despite the alcohol, most people are very well behaved at weddings.
So it would just come down to providing the best food possible. That would have to be our superhero power – “Need exciting and distinctive food for your wedding? Crêpeman to the rescue!”
One thing we would have to consider in great detail is our Superhero attire. We would strongly object to the superhero regulation uniform: tights are definitely off-limits. No way. Not a chance.
A mask wouldn’t really be our style either. If you are a wedding guests and are watching your pancake being skillfully made, you’ll probably want to see the intense concentration on the face of the chef.
So what about a tight-fitting nylon shirt with a large “C” in primary colours splashed across the front? Well, it might look pretty cool in a comic or in a film, but at a wedding, perhaps not. We prefer to dress appropriately and tend to favour the black, collared-shirt kind of feel. The bright blue T-shirt, with mask and tights look is yet to become mainstream at weddings.
At least, not here in the UK, anyway.
