My first wedding cake, so it were. The fact that it didn't fall apart during transport + tasted pretty good + made the bride smile all contributed to a big moment for this amateur hack baker. When my darling 12 year old niece Maddy saw the cake she said "Brook is going to be so proud of Gina for making that." Love her. During the reception my aunt Polly came up to me with fork in hand, cake in mouth, and pointed at the slice on her plate. "You know what you are? A perfectionist!" I laughed out loud. If only to avoid crying. And now I can't decide if she's right or way way wrong. After all of the self-induced stress and nerves and frosting taste-testing I didn't think I would ever eat cake again. And yet. I woke up the next morning and ate wedding cake for breakfast.
I do my very best on this blog to make us look perfect and insanely happy in every way. Which, indeed we are. However, you should also know that sometimes we disagree, we don't get everything we want or everything we pray for, I'm not a size 2, and our sink leaks. Amid all the craziness every day brings, we live each knowing that life is fair, it's just not over yet.
