I am eagerly awaiting the day of our menu tasting next weekend! I’m looking forward to sitting down with the owner / coordinator and working out the finer details like ceremony and reception setup, schedule for the night, etc. I think I’ll feel relieved and on track with it all after we’ve done this.
We’ll also be discussing our cake. Our package includes dessert so there was no option to serve wedding cake as dessert instead (to save money, or tummy space). I love baking and eating cakes, but I often see so much cake left uneaten at weddings that it pains me – what a waste, I cry! My table guests often give me their unwanted fondant, but then I feel sick from the sugar rush… Enough rambling about cake memories!
We’re going to have a Cake of Cheese. Why? Because we both love cheese, I love the look of wheels of cheese, it will be a type of supper later in the evening, and it saves us from having 2 dessert courses. I’m thinking maybe 3 or 4 wheels of cheese (perhaps some aged cheddar, creamy camembert, sharp blue vein… *drool*). The Chef is going to order the cheese and construct it into a ‘cake’, and it will be served with figs and lavosh. So when we’re hungry again from all the dancing, we’ll have platters of cheese. That’s the idea anyway.
