Two marzipan figures come to life on top of a wedding cake and start to sculpt the perfect marriage out of cake icing. And success! Everything seems sweet and perfect: they try to please each other and make each other happy. But discontent soon sours the atmosphere. At first, they manage to find compromises, but the more insignificant the disputes get, the less they are willing to compromise until nobody is willing to give in anymore.
