Once upon a time two amazing people met and fell in love!
Yesterday “Mike” married the lovely “Jodi”, and because I love this family SO MUCH, and also love baking, I made about 165 carrot cake cupcakes and a three layer carrot cake for their reception.
There was SO MUCH FOOD!
It was quite the baking ordeal, and I’m not sure when or if I will ever make that many cupcakes and 5 gallons of cream cheese icing again.
It was so much work.
But it was amazing how well received they were.
And it was great to give them a wedding present that I actually put a lot of love into.
People were coming up to me in droves telling me how delicious they were.
I was in the kitchen of the reception hall washing a platter at one point and all of the sudden 150 people started chanting my name!!
I’m not kidding.
Mike was trying to invite me up on stage to take credit for my baking, and not knowing where I was in the building, he got everyone chanting.
It was pretty much the best feeling in the world.
So, anyway…here are some photographs I took from the recption!!!
Yummy cupcake goodness!
Potluck Reception food!
The most delicious cole slaw this girl has ever eaten!
I got the last dark chocolate covered strawberry!
Fresh fruit salad!
Fresh peaches with basil!
So much fun!!!! Time for a nap!
