Done beat and tired


D Day Final Thought

As I begin to make this cake that I unwittingly agreed to bake post many glasses of wine, I feel the need to honor the moment.  She has been a force to recon with my whole life, from the early days of delivering tutti fruiti underwear to each other, playing bozo the clown card games with grandma and driving rock cars in the backyard, my sister has been one of my closest companions.  We haven’t gone without our share of troubles, but we have been unshakable partners in crime.  My sister and future brother in law are fortunate to have found each other at just the right time.  I am so happy that she is going to get the opportunity to share her life with someone and experience the joys (and not) of marriage.  I welcome her now into the family of married people.  We are happy, insane and complete in ways we weren’t before.  I love you.  A lot.

The final countdown

Are you kidding me.  The day is upon me.  Today I looked around the house for all of hte little pieces of everything that I need for tomorrow….cake boards, icing tips, color gels, everything.  The flowers arrived, the topping is done and I like an insane person tried to make a new filling for the cake.  I followed the recipe and I clearly can’t make fudgy wonderful chocolate filling.  It tastes good, but has the texture of…hmmmm….sand.  So, wish me luck tomorrow.  We’ll see how it goes!!!

Near vomit mode

The cakes are made. They are on the freezer where they’ll stay till early Friday morning. The topper is done and the funniest flowers will be delivered ups on Thursday. Seriously cutting it close. Eggs and butter bought tonight…the rest will come. Can’t wait to share photos of it all. Most worried about the stacking aspect which I’ve not done before. Ill be happy my dad, mom and sister will be there to help. I do think the topper is beautiful. Thanks for the positive comments. Good night!!
