today I have a bit more to share from my summer so far...
My youngest sister had her wedding reception this past weekend and I offered to make the cake for her. It was not stress free I can assure you, but I was more than pleased with the results
my inspiration for the cake came from her June wedding which they had on the beach under a homemade driftwood arbor,at sunset,no less.
The seashells I made from white chocolate-and the sand is brown sugar. All edible except the real mini driftwood arbor I made!
the wording on the cake is from James Taylor's
their favorite concert together.
Jude bawled her eyes out when she saw it and everyone loved it-phew! Done with cakes for awhile! heehee
Judy & Bill- it only took them 14 years to make it official! LOL
The fun continued on with posing for photos...
this is me,my sisters,Judy and Jeanne~
Julie and Jayne and were not able to make it
here we have "sisters from other mothers" as we like to call them! heehee
cousins,sils and besties!
of course the guys had to have in on the fun!!
My handsome Riley is on the right and my cousin's hubby, Neil on the left
Judy rented cabins on Lake Ontario, same place they were married- we grew up camping up here so it was like coming home. The lake is beautiful but she was totally angry that day- no swimming for us- the waves were recorded at over 6 feet in height! Yikes!!!
BTW, this is one of my favorite places to beach comb- always great treasures!
