I cannot begin to catch up on what's been happening. But this is the "sum up" - 3 of my children are getting married in 1 1/2 months (longest engagement 3 1/2 months). They have no sense of timing. One of them getting married is a boy. Thankfully, the Bride's parents took care of just about everything. Bless them.
The other 2 weddings are for our daughters. And they are totally DIY Weddings. I'll be posting bits and pieces in between the "inshanity" (as the boyfriend so aptly puts it) of it all. Here is a quick pic of the wedding cake for one of them. My daughter from another mother, Hannah, baked the cakes. My daughter Leila made the frosting. And I assembled and decorated the cake. The craftsmanship is not quite as lovely as I Am Baker from where I got the idea, but for finishing it at 4:30 am the day of the wedding I was not complaining.
I have not decorated a serious cake for 20 years. My daughter Leila was going to but I don't know what came over me and I said I wanted to. It was the delirious creative side of me. But, here is the link that gave me the fabulous idea and instruction - I Am Baker.
