Tomorrow night, I am off to Montara Beach, California to the wedding of two good friends of mine, and not only am I doing that, but I am making the cupcakes for the wedding reception! 100 of them, to be exact.
Back when they got engaged, RA wasn't even a glimpse in my eye. My how things have changed, and changed again. Had the wedding been this past winter, I doubt that I could have risen to the occasion (or have risen my arms), but now that my wonder drug is working, I'm able to fly out for the wedding and spend two days baking and assembling the cupcakes, and nothing could make me happier!
This is what's on the menu:
- Plain cupcakes (my grandmother's recipe, of course) with a rich buttercream icing, topped off with pretty, brighly colored edible flowers
- German chocolate cupcakes filled with gooey coconut pecan filling, covered in coconut pecan filling, and drizzled with dark chocolate (the groom's choice)
- Plain cupcakes filled with lavender cream and a swirl of citrus cream cheese frosting on top
It'll be a quick trip with lots of activity and traveling and celebrating, and I can't wait!
RA - eat your heart out!
