Months ago, my friend Sue asked me to do her wedding cake. It was for an outdoor, summer wedding to take place at her country place. We decided that a naked cake with fresh flowers would fit the bill.
It was perfect. The couple loved it and so did their 80 or so guests. A perfect day for a perfect couple.
There were hors d'oeuvres made by friends and served by friends.
Those dumplings were the bomb!
The food was served in Sue's greenhouse, turned into a dining room for the occasion.
One large table to fit 75 guests, seated on covered hay bales.
The food? Oh my! Smoked turkey, ribs, pulled pork, kale salad, Turkish carrots with a garlic, yogurt sauce, bean salad, Greek salad. Wow.
It was a perfect, sunny day and a great day spent with friends.
On our way to see the cake (it stayed at Sue's sister's Sigrun's house next door because it was cool), I snapped this sweet pic of Sue.
And here are the silliest and sweetest couple ever. Happy days Sue and Mike.
