So, yeah, my mind is going a hundred miles a minute while my body is going like negative miles a minute. They need to catch up!

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"

Ah, such a great movie. Anyways, no there will be no bleeding armadillo cake at my wedding. But at the rehearsal dinner we will have a Batman cake. Teehee

This is technically what my cake will look like:

Minus the sugar leaves. And that you see the beading? Yeah that will be icing dyed to match the bridesmaid dresses, which are jade. I'm so excited. I cannot wait to cut into that cake. More over I can't wait to shove that cake into Dan's face.

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.

Haha, Batman cake?! Fun! Steel Magnolias is one of the greatest movies ever, by the way. And bobble heads? I'm already amused.

When I got married I made my own wedding cake. Looking back now that was a crazy idea but somehow it worked and worked well. How I managed it is beyond me because although baking was easy enough I was not a skilled sugar paste artist. Even so my cake had 3 tiers on columns with frills, filigree icing and sugar flowers. I even managed to transport it 30 miles from where I lived to my mum's house and then onto the reception without damaging it. At the time I was more stressed out about seating plans than I was about the prospect of the cake going wrong. I wouldn't have the nerve to do it again. Silly thing is, I don't like icing!

Our wedding was bizarre to say the least. We didn't even get to pick the cake we wanted so I still crave a wedding cake of my dreams. Do you think it's too late?? LOL
