So I'll do a Tuesday post, on a Thursday, mainly b/c A Margarita loves to hear about my wedding!
I recently reconnected with a friend from High School, Bekaboo. Bekaboo played Miracle Max to my wonderful rendition of Valerie in our high school's version of The Princess Bride (on crack, seriously it was like 80 minutes of us speeding through our lines b/c our director didn't want an intermission). Shortly after the show, our sophomore year ended and Bekaboo and family moved to Florida. Long story short...we lost touch. But through the wonderful invention of facebook we have found each other once again. She recently got married and she has tons of tips for me and I love her for it. She even sent me a cd with her wedding photos, and sorry girl but I'm totally stealing your veil! Anywho, Bekaboo reminded me of my cake. (losing all this weight prepares me to eat my weight in wedding cake) and I realized that even though it's been ordered for a while now, I totally haven't told my readers about my cake!
Now, Dan and I both are not huge cake fans. My favorite is yellow cake with chocolate frosting in the form of a cupcake...but we do have one cake that is an all time favorite! RED VELVET. mm mm good. plus when you tell people you're having a red velvet cake at your wedding they automatically assume it will look like this:
Side note: "I can't even begin to imagine how you make gray icing"
This is technically what my cake will look like:
Actually what I'm most excited about that concerns the cake...the topper. We're ordering customized bobble heads to be our cake topper. I can't wait for the look on people's faces. There are so many surprises in store...good surprises...we're not the kind of couple to ask those stupid wedding crashers to come and humiliate our families...that's just rude.
