Cake done...
seems like a lot of weddings, lately... must be getting to be that age- where my nephews and nieces and sons and daughters of friends are falling in love and getting married. All my children are still too young... well, mostly. giggle. I know I'm too young!
This wedding cake I made for my neice Bethany and her beloved Travis. They are a lovely couple. The wedding will be a very simple one with just a punch and cake reception. I made an extra sheet cake- just in case. Wouldn't it be sad if we ran out of cake? And no sniggering about the orange flowers- the bride actually picked that color as an accent to her green. I think it a lovely combo- of course. The groom loves strawberry cake, so the top two layers are strawberry and the bottom two layers are yellow. I just used a boxed strawberry cake mix and added 1/2 cup of strawberry freezer jam to each mix. Yummo. Very moist. The yellow cakes I added 1/2 cup of mayonaise. The icing is buttercream/almond and my blood sugar says it's pretty tasty, too. Everything is ready and now we rest. Tomorrow is the big day.

Lovely job...and you are right - the summer is full of weddings it seems. Tiring, but wonderful, huh?

Beautiful cake! But I must say - I have never heard of adding mayo to cake before!

Mmmmm...I can nearly taste it! I would bet the slices of pinkish cake were a delightful sight -- not to mention, taste -- with the tiny orange flowers in contrast. (Kind of like the color scheme of your blog page!) ;-)
