I Got It Right (For Once): Summer Wedding Edition

I figured I should kick off August right. And what better way to seize the day than to post a wedding post? It is summer, after all. I did another cake for a friend’s wedding. And this wedding was pretty over-the-top for a number of reasons.

1) The couple is sweet awesome. (And when I say ‘sweet awesome,’ I mean that they are sweet in both senses of the word and that they love Jesus like whoa.)

2) They had a rad dance party. I mean, it was really something; even the mix was great. After weeks of planning this cake, I really let loose on the dance floor. (And when I say ‘let loose,’ I mean that I may have broken a sweat as I was breakin’ it down. But it was a really hot day too, so.)

3) The cake actually turned out so well. This is not even me bragging. I was astounded, given the number of mishaps I have had in the past. Like the time I flipped a whole box of cupcakes cruising down 94. Or that other time I drove two hours with a tiered and frosted cake. (Why, why did I think that would work?)

This time,  not a single thing went wrong. It was the best cake I have ever made. Ever. It was super moist. The frosting didn’t melt off. The portion sizes were perfect. I drove 50 minutes with all the cakes in a car that essentially has no shocks. (But it does get 50 miles to the gallon on average. Not that it helped me.) I was amazed. And after that, I had a really good time and was glad.

Kicking off August right,


P.S. Big big thank you to the girls who helped me cut the cake and to the staff that served it. You were all darlings.
