We have eaten the last piece of cake.
We have eaten the last piece of cake that is not in the freezer.
I am sick of cake.
Well until next week maybe.
In fact our tally was.....10 c butter, 38 eggs, 25 c flour and 6 1/2 c sugar later- plus cake pops- and a burnt cake which will not be discussed in this post.
Rachel set out to conquer the groom's cake. Our new son in law loves to hunt and shoot as does his father and new father in law-
so I fashioned some marshmallow fondant deer horns- of which were wrong, redone, wrong again (according to men) and then just settled on.
Insert the look of the mother of the bride on wedding overload covered in powdered sugar looking over her glasses ready to slap the next man with cake advice.
Rachel created the cutest tree stump ever!!

I took on the vintage suitcase cake. And made a massive mess in the process...a neat baker I am not.

How to fix?
Double dip when all the cracking is done
This results in goofy shaped, heavy coated, unique imperfect pops I like to call....
vintage style-(just go with it)
We also- no I also bought cakes at Costco- lots of flavored cakes which meant we had cake coming out our ears. See first comment on post.
My poor company got nothing for dessert but cake-
They almost got nothing for breakfast but cake!
12 days now!
Slowly getting things back in order. I have a cold, the house is still fairly messy, some of the wedding items still need to be put away or sold, it snowed a foot of new snow and it will not get out of the 30's (mid April here!)....but the wedding is over and I can relax. It was a great time..
